Recently, my sister (Cosmetic Couturier on YouTube) who is one of the best bartenders I know came over to create a fun, festive cocktail with me, to share with my readers for New Years Eve! Since we live in Southern California, we wanted something a little south of the border, and refreshing. But of course, we still wanted to make it using all-natural ingredients, and low-carb for a more guilt-free New Years Eve “Cheers”!

A low-carb, refreshing take on a cherry margarita

For our skinny sparkling cherry margarita, all you need is:

  • Tequila (1.5 shots per person)
  • Diet tonic water
  • 1/2 shot of lime juice per person
  • 1/4 cup of frozen or fresh black cherries. (I used frozen with the seeds already removed)
  • Optional: Agave nectar, for additional sweetness, if you like your drinks a little less sour.

Instructions:

Step 1. Fill your tall glasses with ice.

Step 2. In a cocktail shaker, pour your shots of tequila, lime juice, and cherries. Before shaking, muddle your cherries slightly using a muddler, or wooden spoon handle.
