The Best Lavender Margarita Recipe To Soothe Your Stress!

Written by Spencer Higgs

Jump To Recipe

I can’t help it. When I hear the word “margarita,” it brings to life images of idyllic tropical beaches, long summer days, and the happiest of happy hours. From modest cocktails to fruit-bowl sized glasses that are anything but, it’s safe to say there’s a margarita for everyone and every occasion. And with National Margarita Day just around the corner, I’m excited to share with you my personal favorite twist on the infamous tequila mix — the delightful lavender margarita

What’s In A Lavender Margarita?

This colorfully dressed, uniquely
flavored margarita recipe is a far cry from the obnoxiously sweet, suspiciously cheap 2-for-1 deals at your local tiki bar. In fact, it’s closer to a craft lavender cocktail that’s as simple to make and healthy to drink as they come.* You’ll have your friends thinking you grew up in Cabo, while not straying (too far) from your diet goals. 

Okay, let’s check out the ingredients! 

1. Tequila (Silver/Blanco)

In college, I had little to say about tequila; I’d just shout it and blurry fun typically ensued. 

These days, I’ve cultivated a love and respect for the agave spirit, and use different colors and qualities of tequila depending on the cocktail or flavored margarita recipe I’m following. When making a lavender margarita, I insist on a mid-range silver (blanco) tequila. Because it’s our base, we want something that’s going to complement, instead of control, the lavender flavors. 

A rule of thumb: pick a tequila that’s $10-$15 more than anything you would have bought in college!

2. Butterfly pea powder

Margaritas are by nature colorful, which is why you want to go with a silver tequila for this recipe—it’s going to unveil the soft, purply-blue hues that butterfly pea powder brings to life in your
lavender margarita.

Those who have heard of butterfly pea powder may recognize it as the key ingredient in the eponymous tea craze that swept Instagram and Pinterest last year. 

The butterfly pea flower (which also goes by a variety of equally charming names) produces an eye-catching indigo color when made into powder and added to clear liquid. Like tequila 😉 .  

But it also harbors an array of important health benefits. [1] A handful include:

Essentially, if you’re looking to fend off bad stuff, adding butterfly pea powder to your lavender cocktail is a good idea. Sadly, no studies have shown anti-hangover properties.

3. Sweetener

Margaritas are known for their high sugar (read: high calorie) content. But didn’t I promise this would be a healthy recipe?! Instead of sugar, pick a low- or no-calorie sweetener of your choice. Preferably, you want to choose one that has little or no color to preserve the aesthetic of your
lavender cocktail

Also, if you want to make a simple syrup, just mix your sweetener into a pan of warm water and stir. As a rule of thumb, 3 1/2 tablespoons into 1/2 of water works for most stevia simple syrups.

Note: Margaritas usually use agave, but to achieve the color we want, it’s best to remove as many colored ingredients as possible. 

4. ZzzTox tea

If Butterfly Pea Powder makes this
flavored margarita recipe healthier, SkinnyFit’s ZzzTox tea makes it the healthiest! Beyond providing a distinct lavender taste, adding ZzzTox to your lavender cocktail amplifies the nutrient content and will help you feel incredible. The secret is ZzzTox’s 8 types of metabolism-boosting, stress-reducing tea leaves, used for centuries for mental and physical wellbeing.
