I know that many of you really loved my 10 Low Carb Vodka Drinks collection – so here are some amazing recipes for you to try that all include tequila!
By the way, if you’re concerned about which types of alcohol work on your way of eating, please read my article Can You Drink Alcohol On A Low Carb Diet? The short answer, by the way, is yes – but only certain types are recommended AND you have to be aware of your limit.
So here are the Low Carb Tequila Drinks!
Let's first look at the margarita, though. It's a classic! I highly recommend checking out my low carb margarita recipe – especially as I've made a video tutorial to go with it!
While writing this post I realized that I don't have a recipe for Frozen Margarita – so I just HAD to make one! Scroll down for the printable recipe card.
While thinking about margaritas, I came across these Skinnies Baja Margarita Cocktail Mixer packets, which you can buy on Netrition. All you need to do is add tequila and club soda – and you have an “instant margarita” for 1g net carb! I tried it out – and although the taste was a little high in citric acid for my liking, it certainly was quick and convenient!
Oooh and a quick shout-out to Martina at Keto Diet App – her low carb SPICY margarita looks amazing!
Moving on (finally) from margaritas, have you tried a Paloma?!? It's a grapefruit flavored cocktail and you'll love my low carb version.
And I'm sure you're familiar with the concept of a Bloody Mary cocktail – but how about a Bloody Maria? All you need to is follow my low carb Bloody Mary recipe, and switch the vodka for tequila. Easy!
You may remember my review of the awesome book Keto Happy Hour by Kyndra Holley. One of the tequila drinks keto recipes that she features is a Brave Bull – made from a homemade coffee liqueur and tequila. It's like a Mexican version of a Black Russian!
Oh and I absolutely have to tell you about this Strawberry Lime Tequila from My Life Cookbook! She infused different liquors with fruit and herbs – but this tequila sounds SO good!
Now I haven't mentioned Tequila Sunrise – yet. I'm still working on a recipe for it because that high carb orange juice is kind of hard to replace. But I recently discovered some zero carb grenadine flavoring drops from Netrition – so as soon as I've figured out how to make a low carb version of this classic drink I'll add a link here!
And here's that new frozen margarita recipe that I promised!
- lime wedge
- 2 tbs tequila
- 1 tbs lime juice
- 2 tbs low carb simple syrup, or Da Vinci sugar free syrup
- ½ tsp orange extract
- 1 - 1½ cups ice cubes
- Run the lime wedge around the edge of a glass. Dip the rim of the glass into a plate of salt.
- Add the remaining ingredients to a blender (including the ice) and pulse until it has reached the desired consistency.
- Pour it into the prepared glass, and garnish with a slice of lime.
