  • Place salt on a plate. Run 1 lime wedge along the rim of the Mason jar. Press the jar down into the salt. Fill the jar with ice cubes.

  • Strain margarita into the jar. Top with sparkling water and stir. Garnish with remaining lime wedge.

Cook's Note:

If you have granular sweetener on hand instead of powdered, you can pulse it in a blender or food processor to achieve a powdered consistency.

I really liked this. It is so nice to be able to find a drink recipe that fits into my diet. Living in Florida, a margarita really hits the spot and it's good to know I can enjoy one without totally falling off the keto wagon! I have made this with the sweetener and without. I like it better without because I am not a big fan of sweet drinks anyways. I think the lime juice adds enough sweet/tartness. But that is my personal preference. Read More

We made it and were VERY impressed with the outcome. We used swerve as the sweetener and there was no aftertaste. I would never have thought to use the orange LaCroix sparkling water as my topper, but it was ideal. Tasted like a margarita you might get at a restaurant, and it really hit the spot! Read More

I loved it! I've been pining for a margarita but will NOT do sugar due to the Keto plan that is working so well. This recipe hit the spot. I did add a little more tequila just to keep it nice and strong. Read More

Absolutely delicious. I used fresh squeezed organic lime juice. Tres organic white tequila. I instead used one packet of truvia therefore a little lower in carbs.. I used Polar tangerine lemon seltzer. Additionally I added Angostura Orange Bitters for more orange flavor. Fresh and mostly organic. Refreshing. A brand new Keto drink to add to my weekend lineup of choice Keto drinks. Thank you. Read More
