How to make a Karl ‘Garita’

Hey Hey Friends!  

Happy Thursday!!  Hope you are having a great week.  We are in still in summer mode around here, working on our summer bucket list of fun things to do with the kids. It has been kind of quiet around here lately….  Yep, you read that right…  quiet in the Rissland household is NOT normal but it has been quiet LOL!  

If you know us, then you know that Karl loves to make his own ‘drinks’.  Since both us (mostly me) are still living the Keto lifestyle,  yes we still drink on Keto, we have really cut out ALL bad sugary drinks. We have pretty much stayed with red wine  and Corona premier beer.   We used to use all the sugary ‘mixers’ whether it was for margarita’s or martini’s. We literally have tried them all and they were not ‘healthy’. I wonder why I would wake up the next day with a headache and horrible stomach ache🤦🏻‍♀️ It was all the darn sugar!

My favorite drink is a Margarita.  As I mentioned all the store bought margarita mixers are so unhealthy. The Mexican restaurants have ‘skinny’ versions but they just don’t taste that great.  Since we like to make our own, Karl has perfected the best margarita using only 3 ingredients and everyone loves them so I wanted to share his version with my readers.   Disclaimer: this is not a Keto/Paleo drink.


Fill 2 glasses with ice, pour over, and enjoy!  

Optional:  rim the glass with salt

We have been known to have a Karl ‘Garita’ flavor bar when entertaining. Some Karl ‘Garita’ flavor suggestions to try:

Strawberry margarita:  muddle fresh strawberries

Cucumber/Jalapeno: skin and chop up a cucumber and chop up a jalapeno, mince and add to the glass

Raspberry margarita:  muddle fresh rasberries 

The flavor options are endless. Just use your imagination!

So there you have it…  the recipe for everyone’s favorite cocktail at our house…  The Karl ‘Garita’! Do you have any favorite cocktail recipes! I’d love to hear!
