Low-Carb Margarita Mix
Okay, this is neither a snack nor a nibble, but it sure is good for parties! And although it's not super low in carbs, it's considerably less sugary than the commercial stuff.
- 1 1/2 cups lime juice, fresh or bottled
- 1/2 cup lemon juice, fresh or bottled
- 1 1/2 cups Splenda
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 teaspoon orange extract
Combine all the ingredients in a blender for 1 minute, and pour into a clean bottle. Refrigerate until ready to use.
To make a margarita, combine 2 ounces of tequila with 6 ounces of margarita mix, and either put it through the blender with lots of ice, or simply serve it on the rocks.
Yield: About 1 quart. This whole recipe has about 54 grams of carbs, so figure about
10 grams in each 6-ounce serving of the mix.
