These Low Carb, Keto Strawberry Serrano Margaritas are the perfect complement to your Keto Summer BBQ. Made with a fresh strawberry, a serrano pepper and fresh lime juice, these Keto margaritas are fresh, sweet, spicy and tangy. And they only have 3 net carbs each!
1 large strawberry, washed, dried and top removed
1 medium serrano pepper, washed, dried and sliced
1 c. water
1/2 c. granulated erythritol
1/4 c. fresh lime juice
3 oz. tequila, separated
optional garnishes: whole strawberries, lime slices or wedges
Muddle strawberry with a mortar and pestle or puree in a small food processor.
Bring the water to a boil and stir in granulated erythritol until dissolved.
Reduce heat, add strawberry puree, serrano pepper slices and lime juice, and simmer five minutes.
Allow to cool. This is important!
Rub a lime wedge around the rim of each large margarita glass and then dip into the kosher salt.
Fill glasses with ice. Add 1 1/2 ounces tequila to each glass and top with strawberry lime mixture.
Add a pinch of kosher salt to each glass and give a quick stir.
Garnish with whole strawberries, lime slices or wedges and/or additional serrano pepper slices.
To stretch the mixture and enjoy an extra cocktail, divide into four servings instead of two, and top with Strawberry Bubly.
Prep time does not include cooling time.
I use this electric citrus juicer or this 100% fresh lime juice.
