I love a good Margarita — not the traditional kind so much though. I really like the fruity ones, the ones that really pile on the carbs and calories. Because of that I am always looking for ways to replicate my favorite drinks in a low carb version. One thing that I have found that makes almost any fruity drink possible are the MIO water enhancer drops. No, they haven’t paid me, I just really like the variety available. In this case I used blueberry lemonade water enhancer along with tequila and Meyer lemon to recreate a blueberry margarita.
It’s so easy that it’s almost not a recipe.
A lot of people thing you can’t have cocktails on low carb and that’s just not true. You have to be careful because your body will quite burning fat while it burns off the alcohol but it usually won’t stall you out like a bag of chips will. Pay attention to the scales, though. You may only be able to have one cocktail a week or you may be able to get away with one every night. It’s going to be different for everyone. Please be sure to use a really good tequila. There’s nothing worse than cheap tequila (unless it’s cheap vodka) and it will show in your recipe.
