For the cocktails and recipes mentioned on, I’ll often say, “accept no substitutes”.

Well, here’s a case where a substitute is actually better. Instead of sugar or simple syrup, use agave syrup. Yes… agave. The stuff tequila comes from.

Not only does it taste better… you use less. It has fewer calories, is better for you, saves you time and has a long shelf life.

This is especially true with Margaritas and Mojitos, but you can substitute it for anything that calls for sugar. Just be sure to use 1/2 to no more than 3/4 the amount of sugar called for in your concoction.

Get some. Use it often. Enjoy!
