Ingredients

  • 4 jalapeño slices bottled
  • 4 tbsp lime juice, fresh (2-3 limes)
  • 2 oz tequila
  • 12 drops liquid stevia
  • 16 cubes ice 8 for recipe, 8 to serve

Salt rim:

Instructions

  • Run a wedge of lime around the rim of your glasses.
  • Mix the salt, chili and spices together in a small bowl or ramekin. Place the salt mix onto a plate and dip the glass rim into the salt mix. Turn the glass to coat and repeat with the other glass.
  • Add half the ice to each glass. Place the 2 slices of jalapeno and the lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Muddle the jalapeño. I used the end of a wooden spoon.
  • Add the tequila, the stevia glycerite and the remaining ice and shake to mix.
  • Strain the margarita into the salted glass. Add a slice of jalapeño and some cilantro to garnish. (optional)

Notes

If you like your Low-Carb Margarita to be even more spicy, leave the shaken cocktail to stand for up to 5 minutes. This will allow more spice to develop. Alternatively, add an extra jalapeño slice to the cocktail shaker.
Add more or less stevia glycerite to achieve your desired level of sweetness.
