- Fresh lime juice - This is a classic and the most essential ingredient when making a margarita! Fresh squeezed is obviously best.
- Orange juice & sugar free simple syrup - Traditionally Triple Sec or orange liqueur, like Grand Marnier or Cointreau are used for a hint of orange flavor in a margarita, but it also adds a ton of sugar and carbs, so we use fresh orange juice instead + homemade sugar free simple syrup instead! You could substitute fresh orange juice for orange extract for even less added sugar.
- Reposado tequila - What's to say? This is an essential ingredient!
- Kosher salt - Diamond Kosher Salt is our top choice salt, unless otherwise noted, so make a note of this if you are going to use something else. This article is incredibly helpful when deciding how much salt to use!
- Diet cranberry juice- This adds your cranberry flavor, and color of course! It also provides a little bit of sweetness, with minimal calories and sugar.
- Prosecco - You can use your prosecco of choice here, something dry. The bubbles + the cranberry instantly make this drink festive.
- Garnish with: orange slices, cranberries, rosemary (optional)
How to Make This Keto Prosecco Margarita:
In a cocktail shaker with ice, add in your freshly squeezed lime juice and fresh squeezed orange juice.
Also add in the sugar free simple syrup to taste.
Add in the diet cranberry juice and tequila.
Sprinkle in some salt, then give the shaker a good shake, for about 30 seconds until cold. Strain into glasses filled with ice.
Top with prosecco.
Garnish with an orange and/or lime wedge, cranberries, and some "sugared" rosemary if desired. Enjoy!
*To make the sugared rosemary, you can either use regular sugar, or a granulay sweetener of your choice, then get the rosemary wet before dunking it in the sweetener.
Yes, prosecco is keto friendly, generally speaking! However, ketosis is the absence of carbs, and a metabolic state, not a food. With that being said, dry prosecco is generally considered one of the best alcohols to drink on keto.
If you're asking how many carbs are in prosecco, we'd have to say it depends on the brand, but in general, there are about 1-2 grams of carbs in a 5-ounce serving of prosecco. So, if you're opting for a low carb drink, prosecco is a great go to!
We have a few other prosecco cocktails that you might enjoy, like this low carb rosé ginger paloma, and this apple cider spritzer!
A simple syrup is exactly what it sounds like. You combine equal parts hot water and sugar free sweetener of choice and stir until it dissolves. Some sweeteners will crystallize once they are cold but you can remedy this by warming it up prior to using it.
Allulose sweetener is our preferred method for the texture and flavor, since it won't crystallize after being refrigerated. It is slightly less sweet than sugar however, so keep this in mind.
Bring a cup of water to a boil on the stovetop, once boiling, stir in 1 and ⅓ cups allulose sweetener. Allow to cool, and then use. Store for up to 3 months in an airtight container at room temperature, or up to 6 months in the fridge!
