Substitute for triple sec

For 2 tbsp Triple Sec substitute 2 tsp orange extract, OR
2-4 drops of orange oil, OR
2 tsp orange zest

I have a great recipe for margaritas, but would like to substitue for the triple sec to eliminate all the sugar.
I would think a very small amount of the orange extract would be fine but I'd really start with a tiny amount so it does not become overwhelming.  Other than that I would just consider leaving that ingredient out all together.
