Keeping alcoholic drinks sugar free isn’t always easy. It’s easy when you have most straight alcohols or a dry wine, but what about when you want a mixer? This Smoky Cucumber Jalapeno Margarita uses mezcal for extra flavor, sparkling water to replace a typical sugary mixer and a couple of drops of stevia for a little sweetness. Enjoy as a pre-dinner cocktail or with our classic pairing of Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.
