I’m guessing you’ve never had a biochemist as your bartender. Nor someone who is also a resident Paleo and fitness expert. But today is your lucky day, my friends!
While drinking is not recommended as an everyday part of the Paleo lifestyle, it might just be silly for us to think you won’t want to take part in the occasional social beverage. So, if you’re going to have a drink, why not make it as Paleo as possible?
Enter Robb Wolf. Former research biochemist. Did graduate work with Loren Cordain, Ph.D. (and author of The Paleo Diet). Co-Founder of Crossfit NorCal. Expert blogger, and host of his very own Podcasts.
Jake and I are big fans of Robb Wolf, and we were so excited when we heard Podcast #3, introducing the NorCal Margarita (I’ve renamed it the Wolf Margarita here). Robb also refers to it as getting drunk by science, and you’ll have to listen to his Podcast for the details. We finally tried it ourselves for the first time a few weeks ago, loved it, and decided we had to have them once more to take photos and create a proper blog post for you. Oh yes, Internet friends, we will drink for you. Because we’re just that devoted.
It’s Friday night. Grab a glass, follow the steps below, and enjoy!
- Pour Two Shots Tequila over ice
- Add juice from one whole Lime
- Add a splash of soda water
I’m a bit of a lightweight when it comes to drinks, so I made mine with just one shot of tequila. I tasted both mine and Jake’s, and thought they both tasted great! Jake’s wasn’t too strong, nor was mine too weak. I was afraid mine would taste a bit watery, but the juice from the lime made it perfectly tangy. I actually liked this better than the traditional margaritas I’ve had in the past! Maybe you will too? Be sure to let us know!
Happy eating! (and drinking!) Joey
