Thai Lemongrass Margarita

This is a perfect cocktail accompaniment with a summer spicy or coconut, curry or Asian dish. Flavored with fresh lemongrass, ginger and cilantro (or Thai basil), this Thai-inspired cocktail is definitely a surprising departure from the flavors of a classic margarita.
The ginger adds a spicy punch of flavor while the lemongrass is mildly herbaceous, and the cilantro, well cilantro is always good with tequila. – Zestful Kitchen

Skinny Margarita – Sugar Free, Low Carb, Paleo

By Wholesome Yum

It’s crazy how much sugar is in a regular margarita! There’s almost 400 calories in one you get in a restaurant! Virtually all sweet mixed drinks are incredibly high in sugar, and margaritas are no exception.
The amount of sugar in a regular margarita varies depending on how it’s made. If it’s a margarita from scratch, using tequila, triple sec and lime juice, the sugar will just come from the triple sec. This is the best case scenario, with about 11 grams of sugar in the margarita.
That doesn’t seem too bad, but sometimes this amount can actually be double or more. This is because a large margarita at a restaurant is almost always more than a typical 4 oz serving size.
Even worse, most bars and restaurants make margaritas using a mix. These can vary, but on average, the sugar content per serving is 24 grams! To put that into perspective, a teaspoon of sugar is 4 grams. So, just one serving of margarita mix is equivalent to 6 teaspoons of sugar.

No worries with this Skinny Margarita that is sugar free!

This skinny margarita recipe has only 106 calories, less than 1 gram 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.

Hope you enjoyed this round up of sensational summer cocktails to share with your friends and family this summer and throughout the year!
