low carb green apple beergarita

Green Apple Beer-garita

A beer-garita with just 1.5 carbs per serving? Yes please!

Perfect for Atkins Phase 2, OWL (Ongoing Weight Loss).

Beer-garitas are relatively new cocktails that more or less spans the gap between Saturday television and a party, if you know what I mean. They are light, refreshing, and, thanks to low carb beer, something that you can have during the ongoing weight-loss phase of a low carb diet.

For this recipe you’ll need: tequila, sugar free Jelly Belly Green Apple, Michelob Ultra, sugar free Ginger ale, Granny Smith apple and salt crystals (both optional).

This is slightly different that your normal beergarita (of course!) The green apple adds that puckery tang, while the gingerale softens it up, and the tequila adds kick. The beer? Hey, it’s just there to make it a party. This is one of those recipes you’ll need to adjust to taste. You *might* want to add more tequila or less syrup or whatever.

The sugar free Jelly Belly syrups are made with splenda and usually available at the ice cream or snow cone section of the store. It’s hard to say. I have seen them at Wal-mart and Target or just order them on Amazon.

You can use whatever beer you want and that is available but be sure to check the carbs before you buy! Light beers can vary from 2.6 to 10 carbs a serving! I chose this one because it had the least carbs available where I shop. Just remember that the beer is for two servings so divide the carbs in half… or don’t and drink the whole darn thing.


Here’s a word of caution. Yes, you can have this on a low carb diet during phase two but don’t make it an everyday thing. Alcohol can stall people even if they are keeping their carbs very low. Plus, this is easy to gulp down like Koolaid. Don’t do it. The carbs, few as they are, do add up.
