Keto Margarita - the drink of Summer


I (try to) limit my adult beverages to one a week, usually a glass of champagne on Friday after work, or a mimosa (hold the orange juice) Sunday morning if we go to brunch.  But last Sunday, I made keto margaritas and they will be my go to for the summer.  They are tart, delicious, full of lime (I love lime - almost as much as I love commas and ( ) marks!) and so refreshing.

Now, some people like a salted rim or they like a blended drink.  I like mine salt free and on the rocks.  You can make yours however you want to, this is how I make mine.

I made them for our Cinco de Mayo dinner and have been craving them ever since.  I hope I can wait until Friday to have another one.  Oh wait, my brother in law is coming home for the summer, I might have to have one tonight to celebrate!

Keto Margarita
