However, recipes like these that are relatively low in sugar are much better for you than the high-fructose corn syrup-laden versions you might find at a chain restaurant.

  • 2 Ounces silver tequila
  • Juice of 1 ½ fresh limes
  • Juice of ½ medium-sized orange
  • 1 lime round, for garnish

Directions

In a cocktail shaker filled partway with ice, combine the tequila, lime juice, and orange juice.  Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds. Strain into a rocks glass with and garnish with a round of lime.
