Sugar Free Low Carb Margaritas (Pitcher Recipe)

A friend stopped me today in the grocery store and asked me how to make my sugar free margaritas.  This is a great easy recipe which I know some of my low-carb friends would enjoy.  I have brought this to parties and it was always a hit.

I prefer the taste of my mix over store bought sugar free margarita mix.  You can alter the ratio of soda and water etc. to your taste. 

1 tub (OR 4 “to-go” packs) of Crystal Light powdered lemonade drink mix
(2) cans of diet Mountain Dew [This is 24 liquid ounces total if your measuring from a 2 liter].
Juice of 2 limes
Tequila (to taste) I usually use a couple cups of tequila

In a pitcher, mix the Crystal Light, Diet Mountain Dew, lime juice and tequila. 
Add water to the pitcher until about 3/4 full
Fill the rest of the pitcher with ice. 
Stir and taste.

I like to slice the squeezed lime and put it back in the pitcher for garnish and flavor.

This makes a pretty stiff margarita.  You can alter the amount of tequila based on your tastes.  Note that the ice will melt and water it down as it sits in the pitcher.

      Pretty much. The limes prob have a trace amount of carbs per serving, but everywhere I looked online said that tequilla was 0 carbs.

  2. I have an issue with cyrstal light. I’ve tried over and over to like it… and I can taste the fake sugar. Does the mountain due and tequila hide that flavor?

  3. I made a pitcher last night. It was awesome. I used a Crystal Light liquid version because I had it on hand and the flavors were perfect together. Thank you!!!!

  4. Yum I’m going to make this!
