Is there anything better than a slightly sweet, perfectly salty, refreshing margarita? I think not. Instead of premade margarita mixes that guarantee TONS of sugar (and a headache) I’ve perfected the super light, but still delicious, margarita. Cheers!
- 1 can lemon Spindrift sparkling water
- 1 shot (1-2 ounces) of tequila (my favorite is Casamigos)
- 3/4 shot lime juice (I like Santa Cruz organic)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt (optional)
- 1 lime
To start, coat your glass with salt. Sprinkle a teaspoon of sea salt on a small plate or saucer, slide a lime wedge around the rim of your glass, and spin the rim around in the salted plate. Fill about 1/3 of your glass with ice and add tequila, sparkling water, lime juice, and another lime wedge. If you love that salty goodness like me, add any leftover salt right into your glass and mix. For a spicy version, top with or muddle a few slices of jalapeño pepper. Cheers to a low-sugar, low carb, low hangover marg!
