NorCal Margarita

NorCal Margarita recommended for low-carbers

espolon tequila norcal margarita - NorCal MargaritaFor those well-immersed in the low carb lifestyle already know that you need to watch your alcohol intake carefully. For instance beer is just not a good idea because of the high carb counts, and red wine would be a better choice (in moderation of course).

But I recently discovered the NorCal Margarita – which buzzed around in the Rob Wolf Paleo Solution circles.

Basically, you just mix fresh squeezed lime juice, tequila and soda water to your level of taste. The reason this scores massive points in the low-carb arena – is because for one, tequila is gluten and starch free – and that lime juice apparently blunts any insulin response from the alcohol.

I found a really tasty tequila that is worth checking out. It’s called Espolon Tequila and is smooth as some of the most expensive brands at a much lower price. You can pick up at Buy Right Liquors in Jersey City for only $19.99 a bottle – or at Sparrow’s in Hoboken for $23.99 a bottle. Paying any more than that – and you’re getting ripped off.

We discovered this drink last year and love it. The best part is the lack of hangover the next day. Hard for bars to make though, never trust those tainted lime wedges that have been sitting exposed in those containers for hours on end.

This is my drink of choice! But I like the Milagro Silver Barrel tequila the best. Twice the price though, so maybe I’ll give this brand a try.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
