Low-Cal Elderflower Margarita

Low-Cal Elderflower Margarita -

A healthier cocktail with a refreshing twist!

Cheers to cocktails with a healthy twist! I spent 15 years behind the bar and have learned a zillion ways to make a drink but as I moved into a healthier mindset my challenge was finding a way to still make great tasting cocktails that are “healthier” and don’t break the calorie budget! I found some hacks that help cut calories without sacrificing the taste or the flavors!

KC’s Low-Cal Elderflower Margarita:

2 oz. Tequila ( I used Herradura Silver for a light clean taste)

1 oz. elderflower (St. Germain Liquor or Elderflower Water)

3 drops of Sweet Leaf Orange Liquid Stevia

1/2 fresh squeezed lime

1/2 fresh squeezed lemon

Splash of OJ

Fresh citrus and orange stevia cut hundreds of calories out of this drink!

Fresh citrus and orange stevia cut hundreds of calories out of this drink!

Here are my two big hacks in this drink!

1) Always sub fresh citrus when you can! NOTHING beats a fresh squeezed lime, lemon or orange!

2) Sub out high carb, inflammatory sugars for a better option! It only takes a few drops of flavored stevia to experience the same flavors of high-sugar liquors and processed syrups!

3) Liqour is what it is. You can’t get around it. There are options though if you have issues with gluten etc. I opt for a corn or potato vodka or a great tequila. Just find what works best for you so you don’t feel like total crap the next day!

*It is possible!

You can pre-make this by the pitcher for the perfect summer time party outside!
