Tasty Better Fit, Perfect Margarita
What! A margarita that's healthier for me and tastes just as good? Not possible. What's your secret?
Good tequila. With a great tequila the hard work is done. All you need after that is a perfect blend of lime juice, maple syrup, ice and muddled jalapeno. OK, the jalapeno is optional. But even in small amounts it adds a nice subtle kick to the otherwise delicious cocktail. So there ya go. High quality tequila.
2 oz High grade Blanco or Silver Tequila
1.5 oz Fresh Lime juice
1tbsp (.5 oz) Simple Syrup (or maple syrup)
2 tbsp Pink Himalayan Salt (or no salt)
1 Lime wedge
2 Jalapenos thin sliced and muddled (optional)
2 Purified Ice Cubes
In a shaker add tequila, lime juice, syrup and jalapenos
Add in 2 cube purified ice cubes
Shake for 2-3 minutes (until cubes dissolve)
Strain over a salted rim, ice filled glass
Garnish with lime
Lime juice and maple syrup add antioxidants and anti-viral properties to our body. We're still including an alcohol that causes inflammation as it processes, but we are incorporating it with ingredients that will aid in breaking it down.
What We Avoided:
Processed sugar, artificial flavors, mixers, low quality alcohol and just bad tasting drinks. All of which hinder our body in one way or another of working how it should and causing detrimental inflammation and disease. Remember, moderation is key.
