“Paleo” NorCal Margarita (gluten free)

Put the word “Paleo” in quotes there because technically alcohol isn’t Paleo.   But really, if you have more than one small child (or honestly even just one small child), you too will understand our sentiment – some nights just call for a drink.  A stiff one.  I read today that 4-year-olds ask an average of 437 questions each day.  Each day.  That statistic has got to be true, I have a child that can prove it.  And sometimes it feels like only 37 of those questions were unique – the other one was the exact SAME question asked 400 TIMES. Ok, I’m digressing.  Mostly, it has been awhile since you guys got a good alcoholic beverage recipe on here… (If you missed the past ones, try our Whiskey Sour or Bourbon + Bubbles).  This little drink has become our favorite in the past few months.  When husband and I did super strict Paleo challenge where alcohol consumption wasn’t allowed, we cheated one day a week and made this drink… I know, I know.  We are failures for cheating, but really – 5 drinks in 5 weeks wasn’t too bad given the number of questions we were fielding each day from a certain child.  So famous Paleo Nutritionist, Robb Wolf came up with this recipe… He has lots of scientific reasons why this drink is his drink of choice when it comes to alcohol, which you can read here (scroll down to page 26 of the transcript).  We think that stuff is cool too, but mostly we think it tastes good.  Really good.  Hope you all enjoy it too.

Oh, and did you know that most margarita mixes contain gluten?  Since you will be mixing this up from scratch, and since tequila doesn’t have gluten, you will be drinking a gluten-free margarita.  If you’re into that.
