Margaritas are typically very sweet, at least when you order them out and they are packed with an overly sweet, sweet and sour mix. This Keto Spicy Margarita is the perfect ratio of sour to sweet with the little help of tart lime juice (of course) and a simple syrup made with water and a bit of Swerve. Then we’re spicing things up with some fresh jalapeños that pack a spicy punch. This is one cocktail you’ll want to sip all summer long.

Are you trying to lose weight?
Minimise your consumption to occasional drinks, or ideally, avoid alcohol altogether. Although there are no carbs in spirits, your body can't store alcohol as fat - it has to metabolise it. This means that your body will utilise alcohol instead of body fat which will slow down weight loss.
