This light and spicy margarita is made with whole, fresh ingredients like, well…limes! It also adds a nice kick via infusing the tequila with fresh jalapeños. And a subtle sweetness comes from just a touch of agave, so you won’t have to worry about an inflammation-inducing sugar rush.
It’s super simple, but just remember you’ll have to let the tequila infuse overnight, so plan to do it ahead of your barbecue or dinner party.
Then, when guests arrive (or you’re just ready for a drink), making the individual cocktails will just be a matter of shaking up the tequila and mix (your superior, delicious version) in a glass.
Don’t forget a salty rim, if you prefer.
WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE
Instead of the added sugar, colors, and flavors found in a bottle of margarita mix, it’s all fresh, healthy foods (with a little tequila, naturally). It’s a low-sugar margarita, too, since we use just a bit of agave. Oh, and it tastes sooooo much better than its less healthy counterparts.
