Just in case you'd like a cool and refreshing margarita out on your back deck after a long day in the fields, but you'd rather not have the alcohol or the calories, here is a recipe to try. And limes are sooooooooo good for you too.
1/4 cup lime juice (about 1 lime)
2 T agave nectar (
or other sweetener, maybe honey)
1/2 cup club soda or Sprite
Lime wedge for garnish
In a small glass, combine lime juice and agave nectar.
Stir. May make ahead and refrigerate.
When ready to serve, fill a 12-ounce glass with crushed ice. Add lime juice mixture and top off with club soda or Sprite. Garnish with lime/orange slices to make yourself feel special...cause you are.
