Keto Friendly Margarita (sugar free)

This post may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here

I really love a traditional margarita, but I don’t love all the sugar. This Keto Friendly Margarita is my go-to skinnier version, made without sugar and all the junk in those pre-made mixes. It’s my go-to summer cocktail because it’s cold, refreshing, and full of bright lime flavor. Summer nights on the porch with one of these in my hand is my favorite way to end the day after running around between summer camps, playdates, and the local pool.

I usually make this at home without any sweetener or orange juice, but I do add it for company. The orange juice adds in more citrus flavor and helps give it that margarita color without artificial mixers. Occasionally I’ll switch it up and add a splash of pineapple or pomegranate juice for a bit of variation.

I like these on the strong side, but feel free to reduce the tequila to 6 ounces if it’s too much for you. I top it with a splash or two of seltzer for a little bubble, which I suppose would technically make this a margarita spritzer, but who cares when it’s this delicious and refreshing.

I prefer reposado tequila, but silver also works great in these margaritas. Some of my favorite tequilas are Espolòn, Milagro, and Teremana. Feel free to use your favorite!
