Agave_Margarita_RecipeI am a big fan of the margarita and have spent years trying to find the perfect recipe. To be perfect paleo is a must which means 100% agave tequila. This margarita recipe is light, fresh, and summery – perfect for the ladies, perfect for summer brunches and perfect to make at home. It uses agave nectar as it’s sweetener which is at least 30% sweeter than sugar, has less calories, and is lower on the glycemic index making it the perfect compliment for tequila cocktails. In my younger years I loved the Cadillac Margarita which is sweetened with Grand Marnier and found myself wanting that touch of orange flavor in my perfect margarita. The solution. . . a spin on a classic margarita that uses both muddled lime and orange juices. Perfection! Adding a splash of soda at the end makes this the light and refreshing margarita recipe for summer cocktail drinking. We complete the drink by serving it in a salt rimmed glass with a slice of lime on the side. The salt we used is a flaky river salt by India Tree and has a slight pinkish tinge which makes it oh so pretty! You will find the recipe below as well as the PDF for the recipe card should you want to hang on to it for later, or share it with friends. To edit it the card we recommend installing the caviar-dreams font. You can also find the SVG cut file and PDF for those cute little papel picado flags in Thursday’s post. Whether you are celebrating Cinco de Mayo or just the onset of summer, drink responsibly and enjoy! ~ Lia
