The Norcal margarita...better drinking with science!
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:
- Tequila is delicous.
- 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.
- Lime juice blunts the insulin response of the alcohol, maintaining your precious and hard-earned insulin sensitivity.
