Low Calorie Margaritas

It’s National Margarita Day!

Who doesn’t want to have a refreshing adult beverage without worrying about all those unwanted calories?? ME!!! While it’s not exactly easy to do. There are a few drinks you can enjoy and not feel so guilty about. I am writing many detailed recipes about these “refreshments” (that’s what I call my adult beverages) in my book. Here is one you will love this summer. Limit your intake to about 2-3 glasses. Even tho the ingredients are fresh, you don’t want to consume too much as this should be a treat not a road to alcoholism. I stress that often as I like to promote mental and physical health. Have a healthy time! That’s what life is all about.


  • 4 Medium to large lemons, atleast 4 per glass. Large if your glass is 8oz
  • 1 Orange (fresh)
  • Sparkling water, preferably club soda
  • Agave sugar or agave syrup or Setvia
  • Any silver or yellow tequila of choice works


This is super easy to make. Squeeze your lemons, and orange. Pour into your glass (drain the seeds) add ¼ a cup of the sparkling water just enough to leave room for the ice. Add the Stevia or agave, add enough to sweeten. I usually say go by taste, don’t go overboard with the sugar, it usually only needs 1-2 teaspoons of it depending on the size of your glass. Mix with a spoon, add ice cubes, then pour 1-2 shots of any tequila into it. I add 1 fresh mint leaf for extra flavor. If you want your margarita slushy. All you have to do is add everything into a blender with more ice cubes and blend.

Spicy, jalapeño Recipe:

For a spicy taste, add a few red pepper flakes or a tiny dash of chili powder, fresh cut jalapeños (not the pickled kind – use the FRESH ones) 4 per glass, mash up one of the slices of jalapeño and add the juice into the glass for a spicier kick. Add a tiny bit of sea salt and SERVE! Enjoy 🙂

Con Amor,
