NorCal Margarita Recipe

The Infamous NorCal Paleo-ish Margarita - you can use rum instead of tequila says

From page 138 of The Paleo Solution, Robb Wolf advises:

Much of the problem with drinking is not the booze itself but all the crap, usually sugar, that comes along with it. Ditch your froufrou drinks with the umbrellas and go for clear liquor. My favorite is Tequila (gold), prepared with the following ingredients:

  • 2 shots of gold tequila
  • Juice of 1 lime (the whole dang thing)
  • Splash of soda/sparkling water

Drink one or two of these on an empty stomach early in your evening. Wrap up the night with some protein and fat, and you are set. You socialized, got your head change, and did not do too much damage to yourself. There is also some chemistry behind the recommendations. The lime juice blunts insulin release and the carbon dioxide bubbles in the soda water act as what’s called a “nonpolar solvent.” This actually extracts the alcohol from the drink and delivers it to your system faster. Better living through chemistry!

Robb Wolf is a genius. If you want to hear more from Robb, please follow our link to his “Paleolithic Solution” podcast under our “Recommended Videos/Podcasts” section on the right.
