The Nutritionist-Approved, 5-Ingredient Margarita That Tastes Like Summer


    The Nutritionist-Approved, 5-Ingredient Margarita That Tastes Like Summer

    Mexican cuisine is high on her favorite-foods list, and Lloyd is a big proponent of mealtime as a way for family and friends to connect. “Growing up, my weekday meals were pretty simple, but every Sunday we had a big family dinner with two other families on our street,” she says. “I remember how much joy this brought everyone and loved watching the grown-ups create these delicious and comforting meals. I absolutely love to entertain, and there is nothing I love more than having friends over for a great cheese board and cocktails or dinner.”

    It might be a while before Lloyd can throw a big block party for dozens, but in the meantime, she’s still planning to whip up her no-fail margarita recipe this summer. While her version brings the heat, you can easily hold the jalapeño—or stick to just a slice or two—to tone down the spice. “I created this margarita recipe to have a lower-sugar option [of one of my favorite drinks] that is still totally delicious,” she says. “I have been making it for years, and everyone loves it.” The best part it’s only five ingredients if you don’t count the ice. Follow Lloyd’s drool-worthy creations @livlight on Instagram. And below, follow her delicious (and foolproof) recipe for the perfect margarita.

    LivLight’s Low-Sugar Spicy Margarita


    • 2 oz. Casamigos Blanco tequila (or any type of tequila)
    • 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice⁣
    • 3 to 4 oz. club soda⁣
    • A few slices of jalapeño (remove the seeds for less heat) ⁣
    • ⅛ tsp. Stevia or other sugar-free sweetener (or a splash of fresh orange juice)
    • Ice⁣


    Combine all of the ingredients in a glass and mix well, until the liquid is ice cold. If you like your margaritas extra spicy, muddle the jalapeños in the glass first. This margarita can also be made in a martini shaker and served over ice.
