It’s Cinco De Mayo, that day when white people appropriate Hispanic culture without any knowledge of the day’s historical background at all, but, hey, margaritas, amirite?!
We’re back on a low carb kick here in the Unintended Domesticity household, so for me, any celebratory margaritas have to be of the skinny variety. Luckily, I’ve spent some time perfecting my skinny margarita recipe over the past few years and now have one I’m pretty pleased with.
- Tequila (we like Camarena Reposado)
- An Orange
- 1-2 Limes
- Your favorite hot sauce (I like Cholula)
- Club Soda
Then, the recipe I follow is about 2 oz tequila, the juice of half the orange, an equal amount of lime juice, 3 dashes of hot sauce – all shaken over ice then placed in a large glass and topped with club soda.
It’s a little sweet (from the oranges), a little sour (from the limes), a little spicy (from the hot sauce), and a lot drunk. Enjoy!
