2 Paleo-friendly Margaritas for Father’s Day

Bragg’s Limeade Apple Cider Vinegar Drink is the basis of a slightly sweet but very low carb Margarita. See full recipe below.


I grew up in Roscoe, Illinois. It was a small rural town where the only business was a truck stop that sold great pie and the only spices in our cupboard were salt and pepper, (as I remember – there’s a possibility we had dried oregano, too, but you get the picture!)

So, it was a big deal when, as a 16-year-old, I visited my older brother who was attending college at Texas A&M. There, I was introduced to such exotic foods as guacamole, salsa and chili con queso. I was also introduced to tequila via a concoction I was told was a “Margarita.”

Experiencing these new flavors left a lasting impression. To this day, I love making my own fresh guacamole, salsa and margarita’s, the latter with a definite Paleo twist. I call it a Kombucha-rita.

A Kombucha-rita is a tart, non-sugary alternative to the basic bar or supermarket mix variety of margarita.

Today, I’m sharing my two favorite approaches to making Paleo Margaritas, including one that uses an apple cider drinking vinegar to add a touch of sweetness. Enjoy the following recipes!

Low Carb Kombucha-Rita: Tart Version

1 shot favorite 100% Agave tequila 

⅓ cup GT’s original kombucha

1 lime

Salt for rim (optional)

  1. Salt the rim or your favorite glass.  (Does not need to be  a traditional margarita glass.  My favorite is the one pictured here with dragonflies on it).
  2. Fill glass with ice.  Add tequila, kombucha and lime juice.  Stir, serve and relax!
  3. If you prefer blended margaritas and have multiple imbibers, a pitcher of blended margaritas is a fun option. 

Very Low Carb, Apple Cider Vinegar-Rita’s: Slightly Sweet Version

1 shot favorite 100% Agave tequila 

⅓ cup Braggs  Organic ACV Limeade

1 lime

Salt for rim (optional)

  1. Salt the rim or your favorite glass.  (Does not need to be  a traditional margarita glass.  My favorite is the one pictured here with dragonflies on it).
  2. Fill glass with ice. Add tequila, Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar and lime juice. Stir, serve and relax!
  3. If you prefer blended margaritas and have multiple imbibers, a pitcher of blended margaritas is a fun option.
