Cinco de Mayo is just around the corner and to celebrate I'm bringing back these Fizzy Lime Margaritas. That's right, it's Throw Back Thursday! This is the once a month where I dig through the old recipes on the blog and choose one that I love but has terrible pictures to remake, rephotograph, and reshare with you. ♡ #tbt

Fizzy Lime Margaritas are a fav cocktail recipe of mine. Here's why you'll love them:

  • They're bubbly and bubbly cocktails = awesome and refreshing.
  • They're super simple to make. Tart lime juice + sweet agave syrup + delicious tequila + bubbly club soda.
  • No weird tasting ingredients here. Bye bye, icky lime cordial and tubs of premade margarita mix. Don't let the door kick you on the way out!
  • No refined sugars. That's right, these babies are sweetened with a touch of agave syrup. I like the subtle flavor it adds and its better for you sugar status.
  • I've read that people who follow a paleo diet should opt for tequila if they choose to drink. I think this means that these Fizzy Lime Margaritas are in the healthy food category. (hehe maybe not really but that's what I'm telling myself.)
  • These margaritas are the perfect thing to serve anytime you want a delicious but lighter cocktail. Think wedding showers, Sunday brunch, picnics in the park, BBQ parties, you name it.

PS. if you're wanting a laugh, scroll down to just below the recipe to see the picture of the half empty (glass half full?) picture I originally shared with this recipe. ?

Sitting here in my chilly apartment, staring out at the overcast skies, sunny Mexico seems like a long ways away. I have ten more long days to wait before I board my Air Canada flight, first to Cuba for a week and a half, and then to Mexico for another week and a half. While I anxiously wait for the next ten days to pass I will be dreaming of beaches and sunshine while sipping on Fizzy Lime Margaritas.

I have to admit, I'm writing this post in advance. Just like I did with the Coconut Raspberry Mojito Jello Shooters and the Aji Guacamole. I feel a little bit funny about this like I'm somehow not being quite honest with you. Here I am saying that I'm in my chilly apartment (which I am as I write), but I'm actually on a sunny beach (when you're reading this.)

I feel better now that I've shared that with you. 

If I could read the future, I'd say there are lots of Fizzy Lime Margaritas in store for me. I hope I'm not wrong.

This version of a traditional margarita is a lot lighter, less boozy, and slightly fizzy. I'm tempted to call it a margarita spritzer, but that just sounds too girly. Tart lime, strong tequila, and fizzy soda water come together to make a refreshing summer cocktail. This would be equally as good sipped on your backyard patio as it would on a beach in Mexico.

Scale

Ingredients

  • 2-ounces tequila
  • 1-ounce fresh lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup
  • Soda water, to taste (see notes)

Lime Salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon sea salt

Instructions

  1. Stir the lime zest into the salt then place the lime salt on a plate. Wet the rim of a glass with a cut piece of lime then roll the wet edge of the glass through the lime salt.
  2. Add the tequila, lime juice, and agave over ice in a cocktail shaker or mason jar and shake well.
  3. Pour your margarita into the rimmed glass and top with soda water.

Notes

Any bubbly water works in this recipe. I usually opt for Pellegrino or club soda.

To make this for a party, add 2 cups of tequila, 1 cup of lime juice, and 1/3 cup of agave to a large pitcher with ice. Stir until the agave dissolves then top with soda water.
