Cinco de Mayo

May 5, 2010

Health is the thing that makes you feel that now is the best time of the year. ~ Franklin P. Adams

It’s a beautiful day.  Go have a NorCal Margarita and enjoy Mexican Culture!


  1.  2–3 shots of 100% agave tequila.
  2. Juice and pulp from one lime.
  3. Shake it all up with some ice.
  4. Add soda water to taste.

Nick Zadrozny describes it well:

  • Tequila is fermented agave juice, which makes it gluten- or and starch-free. Gluten, as nutrition geeks know, is a gut irritant and just generally bad stuff, and starches are way too dense with unnecessary carbs. Rum could likewise work well here.
  • Lime juice blunts the insulin response of the alcohol, maintaining your precious and hard-earned insulin sensitivity.
  • The lime juice also provides a net alkaline load when it gets to the blood stream, which is a good thing. Most other foods provide a net acid load, and it’s nice to balance that out.
  • The carbon dioxide bubbles in the soda water help get the ethanol into your blood more quickly. This has the practical effect of allowing you to drink a bit less for the same effect.


UPDATE (5.6.10): Had two of these last night, and they were FANTASTIC!  Drink up Johnny!
