The Norcal margarita...better drinking with science!

Wherein I'll be drinking this while reading Robb Wolf's book at and on the beach

Robb Wolf has discussed his margarita in his podcast, but for the full recipe and scientificated breakdown go here.

This drink is wonderful, for a few reasons:
  1. Tequila is delicous.
  2. Tequila is fermented agave juice, which makes it gluten- or and starch-free. Gluten, as nutrition geeks know, is a gut irritant and just generally bad stuff, and starches are way too dense with unnecessary carbs. Rum could likewise work well here.
  3. Lime juice blunts the insulin response of the alcohol, maintaining your precious and hard-earned insulin sensitivity.

Or watch Robb Wolf explain it
