This week I made my Sweet’N Low – Sweet & Spicy Margarita as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SweetNLowStars The inspiration came from a cocktail that I had at a local pub. It was sweet and spicy giving me the idea for this diabetic friendly and low calorie cocktail. It is truly a sweet and spicy margarita with no margarita mix in it.
1 oz. white tequila infused with Jalapeños and fresh pineapple
1 jalapeño (1/2 to garnish and 1/2 to infuse)
4 oz. pineapple juice
Splash of Lime Juice
1 packet Sweet’N Low
First, I started by infusing the tequila with cut up Jalapeños and sliced fresh pineapple. I left in the fridge for a half hour to chill it and get the flavors in there.
Next, mix together the pineapple juice, strained tequila, the packet of Sweet’N Low, tons of ice, and a splash of lime juice.
Rim the glass by using 2 plates, 1 with water and a packet of Sweet’N Low mixed in, and the other with the rim salt. Take the grass and roll it rim first into the water mixture and then into the salt mixture.
Garnish with a Jalapeño wheel and a lime wedge if you have it. This would be awesome as a frozen margarita as well.
Pro Tips: If you want to go light on the spice, remove the white part and seeds of the Jalapeño before using. If you are serving at a party, start off mild with slices of jalapeño on the side to add as desired.
