I'm usually down for a good margarita when I am out at a Mexican restaurant or when making Mexican food at home. The thing is - oftentimes they are full of sugar and other additives, they are too sweet, too tart, too lime green, etc. I prefer a fresh margarita. Meaning - nothing weird added, just the ingredients that a margarita SHOULD have. I say that only to follow up with I have recently discovered bourbon margaritas and I believe they are even better than tequila - but, to each their own. Try it both ways and see what you prefer! I created this recipes as I was doing my first virtual cooking class (Taco Party) where we made tacos and white bean guacamole while sipping on margs! Since it was at the beginning of quarantine I emphasized the fact that it is okay to go rogue when following recipes and incorporate the things you have instead of running to the store again for one or two things. For example, we didn't have tequila at home but we had a bunch of bourbon so I gave it a shot...and I am glad I did! I usually host at least one virtual cooking class a month - follow me on Facebook and Instagram for updates!
While I'm not going to go as far to say that these are "healthy", they are definitely "less unhealthy" than most other margaritas. Everything in moderation.

I believe everyone should eat balanced and not cut food groups if you don't medically need to. All foods can fit in a healthy diet. Unfortunately, I have to avoid gluten and also limit myself with dairy, so my goal is to provide healthy, gluten-free/dairy-free recipes so EVERYONE can enjoy all foods, even if you do have to cut out certain food groups. My recipes are encouraged for everyone to eat, not just for those with sensitivities/allergies! Most of my recipes can be easily converted by using real dairy and whole-wheat in place of my allergy-free substitutes.
