Low Carb Margarita Cocktail

Easy to make, this classic Low Carb Margarita Cocktail tastes absolutely divine. Trust me, you aren’t going to miss the sugar in this recipe. Organic orange extract is used to get the orange flavor required, instead of sugar laden orange liquor, in this recipe. No one would ever guess though, as it tastes just like a margarita should.

A Low Carb Margarita Cocktail is absolutely perfect for a girls night in or a cocktail party. Serve it alongside Mexican food for a themed Mexican party. No one is ever going to guess that this recipe is low carb and sugar free, as it tastes absolutely amazing.

Low Carb Simple Syrup

Make sure you use a low carb simple syrup in your margarita to keep it sugar free. You’ll find the recipe featured below for a “low carb simple syrup,” made with low carb sweetener. Doing this will dilute the alcohol a little, as there is a decent amount of tequila in the recipe. Trust me, you will be grateful that you did this by the end of the night.

As an alternative to the sugar syrup, you could use sweetener drops, such as Sweet Leaf. They won’t dilute the alcohol very much though, so I would dilute them if using them. Sweeten to your own taste, but I probably recommend adding about 5 drops to 30 mls/1 oz of water.

Frozen Or On The Rocks

Turn this recipe into a frozen Margarita simply by blitzing it in a blender with the ice, instead of straining it. Alternatively, serve it simply as a classic cocktail, strained into a cocktail glass, rimmed with salt.

  1. Um, I’ve looked at your other posts and have seen recipes there. But this page doesn’t actually HAVE a recipe… it’s like, not there. I even tried reloading the page on different devices. Just thought you should know. Shame too. This was exactly what I needed tonight for my dinner guests.

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know. There was a glitch with the print area which is where the recipe should display and it impacted on a lot of my recipes. I have been madly reloading them all to fix it, and I thought I had done them all, but this one must have slipped through. This has now been fixed. Apologies but thanks so much for alerting me and hopefully there aren’t any more. It’s a great recipe by the way.
