Why carbs? Unless you have a specific medical condition that a low carb diet can help regulate I think carbs are just the most recent bogeyman like fat was in the eighties. If it’s excess body weight a low carb diet can help jump start the weight loss but long term it’s all about getting rid of bad overeating habits. What does that homemade gin and tonic look like. Just a couple drops of extract added to the gin? Or...?
If you do really think you need less carbs I think that rather than gimmicks like this just drinking beer less often or in smaller servings is best. There are other beverages with less carbs. I recommend getting quinine extract and making your own sugarless gin and tonics with soda water. I don’t miss the corn syrup in the tonic water at all.

My homemade g&t, sans sugar= pint glass full of ice cubes, build with 1 1/2oz gin, 2 drops quinine extract from eye dropper, 1or 2 drops monk fruit liquid sweetener, 1generous wedge lime, thoroughly squeezed into glass and topped with plain seltzer. I like it also with no sweetener, simple syrup, or flavored syrup.
I sometimes like to quote P.G. Wodehouse’s Bertie Wooster and exclaim that I am about to get on the outside of a gin and tonic.
