When it comes to alcoholic beverages, there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a margarita. The problem? Many mixes are jam-packed with sugar, automatically deterring anyone who doesn’t have a sweet tooth or a desire to upset their gut bacteria. There’s a better-for-you way to enjoy happy hour, though: just ask Jennifer Aniston.

Instead of loading up on stomach-crawling sugar—which she isn’t a huge fan of—she keeps things clean with a handful of simple ingredients. But don’t be fooled: Just because her go-to mix is healthier doesn’t mean it skimps on high-vibe margarita goodness. “It’s basically silver tequila with lime juice shaken and over rocks. And some people like a little Cointreau, some don’t,” she tells InStyle. “It’s a cleaner margarita. No sugar, no mixes, no agave. I don’t like sweet drinks.”

So the next time you’re at happy hour, practicing some stress-reducing self-care with your #workwife after a long day, just order the Aniston special. (Okay, okay—your bartender probably won’t know what you’re talking about, so be prepared to rattle off the simple recipe.) With a little alcohol, some lime juice, and a shake or two, you’ll have the perfect concoction to meet all your healthier happy-hour needs.

Here’s why Jennifer Aniston swigs apple cider vinegar in the morning. Or, take a peek inside her self-care Sunday routine.
