Are you looking to switch up your usual happy hour routine, but don’t want to compromise on maintaining a low carb or keto diet? Look no further – I’ve got the perfect low carb summer cocktail for when you need something a little extra special: a Low Carb Tequila Sour! Combining fresh citrus flavors with the addition of tequila, this delicious yet easy-to-make drink is sure to become an instant favorite. Forget all those sugary mixers and heavy additives that come with other cocktails – let’s get down to business and make ourselves a light yet flavorful low carb cocktail today!
If you haven’t had a cocktail with egg whites, you don’t know what you’re missing. While it may seem a little odd – or even gross – at first, trust me, an egg white which is added to many a cocktail, especially sours, results in a frothy, velvety smooth finish that is a delicious – an protein rich! – addition to a drink.
While a margarita may be a more classic summer cocktail, I’ll see your margarita and raise it by this Low Carb Tequila Sour, an easy and quick low carb cocktail that you’ll enjoy long after summer.
