1 medium lime(s), juiced
1/2 tablespoon(s) honey, raw
2 ounce(s) agave tequila (100%)


  1. Mix all ingredients except ice into a drink shaker. If you put the ice in with the honey, it won't dissolve.
  2. Once honey is dissolved, add the ice and shake until the top of shaker is ice cold to touch.
  3. If you don't have a shaker, just mix all ingredients and then add a large ice cube or two medium sized cubes.
  4. Garnish with a lime wedge and line rim with salt if desired.

    I actually like this more than a regular margarita. Lots of lime juice or you will only be able to have 1…

    The classic Tommy’s Margarita from San Francisco uses agave syrup. 2 parts 100% agave tequila blanco (El Jimador is a good brand), 1 part agave syrup, 1 part freshly squeezed lime juice (none of that carton crap).

    My husband and I usually have a couple of Margaritas together on Fridays to celebrate the weekend. I found an organic agave mixer that is just agave and purified water by “Tres Agaves”
    (you can also use regular organic agave, but the mixer lasts longer and is cheaper).
    2 parts silver tequila, (I use Espolon 100% pure Agave for the taste),
    1 part Agave mixer
    1 part lime juice (you can add a bit of water to taste if the lime is too strong)
    Shake it in a tumbler and pour over the rocks
    Garnish with lime wedge
    (You can salt the rim but I don’t due to water retention the next day)

    I will have to try this. Now the BBQ season is here and the garden parties will be starting, I will definitely be making these for everyone to try.
    Thanks for sharing this with us.
    Will you be posting any more paleo cocktails?
