Happy National Tequila Day! Did you know that’s a thing? Yep. I didn’t either, until it randomly showed up on my news feed this morning. It’s great timing, though, because I happen to have a low carb drink recipe with tequila to share today. And, I’m pretty sure this is the BEST skinny margarita recipe I’ve ever had!
Apparently, there’s actually a separate National Margarita Day in February. Today, it’s all about simply tequila. But if you ask me, a skinny margarita recipe is the best way to use tequila, anyway.
It feels a little strange to be talking about drinking a sugar-free margarita in the middle of a Monday afternoon. I mean, let’s be real. You’re probably not going to be drinking right now. Most of us are working at this time, including me. That doesn’t mean you can’t save this easy skinny margarita recipe for this weekend. I still thought today is a great day to share it!
This skinny margarita recipe has only 106 calories, less than 1 grams net carbs, and 0.3 grams of sugar. It only takes a couple minutes to make, using just five ingredients. Can’t get any better than that! And yet, it tastes absolutely delicious.
I served these low carb paleo margaritas for some friends and they didn’t even know that they were healthy or sugar-free! They agreed with me that these are simply the best skinny margarita version they’ve tried.
Drinking these skinny margaritas is much better option than regular ones that are filled with sugar. Sweet drinks have always been my favorite kind, but the sugar in them is a problem. And, even though you can buy skinny margarita mix, it’s usually artificially sweetened. Not good at all!
I prefer to avoid all the sugar and artificial sweeteners by making my own low carb drinks instead. This skinny margarita recipe is sweetened with stevia, but even my husband (not a stevia fan!) couldn’t tell.
Speaking of stevia, there are a couple different options you can use here. The recipe includes a combination of orange extract and liquid stevia to create a healthier, sugar-free version of the typical syrups used in margarita recipes. If you’d like, you can use orange liquid stevia instead and skip the orange extract.
I like my margaritas frozen, so that is how this recipe is written. If you like it on the rocks, you can definitely do that, too. Either way, don’t forget the salted rim and limes! 😉
So, now that you know how to make the best skinny margarita, what foods will you serve it with? Some of my favorites are low carb tortilla chips, healthy taco salad and 3-ingredient queso dip. I’d love to hear all about yours!
