Did you know that there is a national holiday in celebration of margaritas? February 22nd was named National Margarita Day to honor this Mexican drink that was created in 1938. Margaritas are a staple cocktail traditionally made from tequila, orange liqueur (triple sec), and lime juice. They are often blended with ice and served in a large glass rimmed with salt. Not everyone is a bartender but, luckily, the widespread popularity of margaritas has to lead to hundreds of pre-made, readily available mixes that you can enjoy at home. Unfortunately, the issue with many of these mixes, is the insanely high sugar content. An average margarita has around 25g of sugar, which is very obviously not keto-friendly. So what do you do when National Margarita Day comes around and you don’t have any spiced up keto margarita recipes?
