"This delicious little baby is my go-to drink," Kristin says. "It is one of the best drinks for you—at least on the alcohol scale, since blanco tequila is the most unprocessed alcohol. A skinny, spicy marg, it's light and fresh with a nice little kick. I get hungover very easily these days, and I swear this is the only drink that won't put me out the next day."

  • 1 ½ ounces silver tequila
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce pure maple syrup
  • 6 ounces sparkling water
  • ½ - 1 jalapeño, seeded and sliced (be careful when handling)


Serves: 1


In a glass, stir together tequila, lime juice, maple syrup, sparkling water, and jalapeño. Place a handful of ice over top and stir. You could also blend this up with ice for a frozen margarita instead and garnish with extra chile peppers.
