Do you love margaritas?  I know I sure do!  Especially during the warmer months.  Something about them just scream sunshine and fun.  

I like my margaritas on the rocks.  The frozen version just doesn't appeal to me for some reason. I love daiquiris so I'm really not sure why.  

Sadly, that sour mix contains quite a lot of calories. So, I made this lower calorie version which has quickly become my favorite margarita for the summer.

It is fizzy, fun, and super quick to whip up. All traits I adore in my cocktails.

The best low calorie margarita

This particular cocktail is even tummy friendly. I don't know if you have a hard time with the sour mix but it really hurts my tummy. Heartburn central! Since we bypass the sour mix all together in this recipe, I am left heartburn free. That is always a plus in my book.

Ingredients for a low calorie margarita

To make this version of a margarita you will need to gather limes, club soda, sweetened lime juice, triple sec (optional), and, of course, your favorite bottle of tequila.

You will also need ice and a shaker.

Fill the glasses and shaker with ice. Add 1 part tequila, 2-4 tablespoons of lime juice (depending on the size of your glass), and triple sec. Shake vigorously and pour into your glass. Now add 3 parts club soda to the glass. Garnish, serve and enjoy.
