Help Me Design A Fresh Lime/Agave Nectar Margarita

Suzi AKA DesertDanceApril 1, 2013

DH is diabetic. He LOVES Margaritas. My usual pitcher is
1 Can Frozen Limeade
1 Can Water
1 Can 100% Agave (not gold) Tequila
1 Bottle Light Beer

Stir and serve over ice in a salted rim glass garnished with a half slice of lime.

So we move to new property with a huge LIME TREE Loaded with limes! My big job is to make a diabetic / calorie counting friendly Pitcher of Margaritas.

I just made a pitcher with the following original recipe


8 oz fresh squeezed lime juice (unstrained)
4 oz Agave Nectar
1/4 C. Splenda
12 oz Water
1 bottle light beer
12 oz 100% Agave (not gold) Tequila

Stir and serve over ice in a salted rim glass garnished with a half slice of lime.

At first, this was a little sour to me, but the more I drink it, the better I like it! DH doesn't think I need to change a thing.

Open to suggestions. I think the sour part is the unstrained fruit floaties that give a sour burst or tang, but it's quite nice after a while!

Also, Any Tequila with the word "Gold" in it, is not pure Tequila. It is a Mixto. Made specifically for Americanos who think anything Gold is good. In Tequila, that is opposite! Look for the label Made from 100% Agave!

Sounds delightful. My favorite summer beverage is a Michelada. Lots a variations but basically ice, salted rim, beer and lots of fresh lime.

Here is a link that might be useful: michelada

That sounds great too! Reminds me of drinking straight shots of 100% agave tequila with a completo chaser!

It's all good! :-)
