I'm making history here at GreenLiteBites. My first ever alcoholic beverage! What can I say? I was in the mood. It was a hot day. We spent most of it outside working on the yard, BBQing some chicken, and then took the little guy to a local carnival. Once the toddler was in bed and the husband mentioned he may have a beer, I got a hankering for a summer drink.
My version doesn't follow the traditional recipe for margaritas, at least I don't think it does. I know there's something about a 3:2:1 ration or something.Honestly, I don't really care, I used what I had on hand and as I sip and write this, I couldn't be happier with the result. 🙂
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz tequila
- ½ oz triple sec
- 1-2 packets of sweetener (I used truvia)
- ice cubes
Place all the ingredients in a blender or Magic Bullet. Blend. Can't get much easier then that!
A first I used 1 packet of truvia which made a real sour drink so I added another and it was a bit too sweet. Start with 1 and add based on your taste. I was even thinking agave would be tasty in this.
Now, if you don't have triple sec don't fret. It works without it. You may want to add a dash of orange juice just to get the citrus flavor. You may be better off too. Triple sec is the biggest calorie add to this recipe. Without it you save over 50 cals and 5g of sugar. Here's the nutritional information as I made it above.
