Margaritas are one of the most famous and popular cocktails, and although I love my original low carb margarita (watch the video tutorial!), I've also experimented with recipes like sparkling margarita and cucumber margarita!

Low Carb Margarita

I recently got my hands on some fresh redcurrants from a farmer's market, and after making my low carb raspberry and redcurrant sorbet, I still had plenty left. While brainstorming ideas I came found this redcurrant margarita recipe and decided to adapt it to make it keto friendly. By coincidence, it also included raspberries – so it's a popular combination of fruits!

Oh and a quick note about redcurrants: A quarter-cup serving contains 2.7g net carbs, so they're totally fine on a low carb diet. These tart little currants are a good source of  vitamins C and K, magnesium, potassium, and antioxidants. So if you ever see them for sale – buy some!

How to Make a Low Carb Redcurrant Margarita

Add the redcurrants and raspberries to a cocktail shaker. Use a muddler to press as much liquid out of the fruit as possible.

Add tequila, water, lime juice, orange extract, and ice to the shaker.

Shake until fully blended. Test for sweetness – you might like to add some low carb simple syrup if it isn't sweet enough. It should be slightly tart, though – but a lot depends on the fruit used and your own personal preference. 

Strain the cocktail into two margarita glasses with fresh ice.
