The NorCal Margarita…

 

A NorCal Margarita using Espolon tequila

This drink recipe has become a SERIOUS favorite of mine. What’s funny is, if you’d talked to me 6 months ago, I’d have told you I didn’t drink. I’ve been going through a move and a lifestyle “reorganization” recently – a VERY positive one – but one that’s been full of stress, logistical nightmares and other wacky stuff. So, faced with the option of a clock tower and a sniper rifle or a drink or two here and there, I’ve opted for the drinks! You can thank me later :-)

I’ve been VERY sensitive to alcohol my whole life – one of the reasons I really don’t drink – but this recipe is pretty easy on my system and it’s also fairly Paleo friendly. I got the original recipe from my friend Robb Wolf’s book, The Paleo Solution, and I put a few of my own tweaks on it.

Let me know what you think of my favorite – and only – drink recipe!

  3. Daphne Sullivan says:

    Adam…I still can’t open it here in Florida….;-S

  4. Daphne Sullivan says:

    Oh em gee! It worked!!!!! Yay! Running to the market! NOW!

  5. Daphne Sullivan says:

    Okay spoke too soon….it froze and I lost it! Hahahah no pun intended by using the word frozen….

  6. Awesome! No alcohol for me until I get my body fat down but once I’ve earned it, I’m gonna try it. I especially like that you put the pulp of the lime in the drink. I love biting into the pulp of a lime and I put it in my salad dressings.

  7. I tried this tonight and it was NICE. Our gym usually uses this stuff called Sinless (margarita mix) — made w/stevia. BTW, I also bought one of those doohicky-thingamajigs HAHA — it’s real name (get this) is a citrus reamer HAHA works fantastic!

    Not drinking currently,. As a middle aged HHP with food allergies, this has been my only alcoholic drink, for 10 yrs, I like lemon better,with sparkling water, and stevia though.Must rotate, occasionally or risk becoming sensitive. Try with Hornitos,and a tiny splash of cran, for an awesome peppety taste.Sweet nSour mix is death, for most sensitive people.Now to check out your diet.

  9. Great tip using the sparking water….much better than using Sprite!!!!

  10. sounds great! I usually use Agave Nectar instead of the soda….the rest is the same, but a little more water. I like the flavored water idea to change it up! sounds very refreshing!

  11. the “do-hicky thing” is called a reamer.

  12. Where do you buy the Poland Spring raspberry lime sparkling water?

    • Hey Cori!

      I get it here at Stop and Shop. Pretty much anywhere has it. Get the little bottles though. The big ones go flat unless you’re going to make like 10 drinks in a night. If that’s the case then the big one is OK LMFAO!
