Skinny Margaritas

A friend of mine loves margaritas, but, like most of us girls, doesn’t like the 500+ calories that come with them. I mean, seriously, that’s a whole meal’s worth of calories! Drink very many traditional margaritas and you won’t be in those skinny jeans for very long!

I tweaked the classic margarita recipe slightly to lower the calories while keeping that great flavor. You need just a few key ingredients for a lighter margarita. The overly sugary Sweet and Sour mixer isn’t one of them!

Perfectly tart with a refreshing flavor and just a hint of sweetness, this is The Perfect Skinny Margarita. It’s fab. It’s easy. Drink up!

How to rim a glass

  1. Start with a shallow plate or bowl of water, lime juice, or lemon juice. Dip the rim of your glass into the liquid. Alternatively, you could cut a lime or lemon wedge and moisten the rim with it.
  2. Step two, you want to evenly dip the rim into the sugar, salt, or whatever you’re riming the glass with. I have used nonpareils and chocolate. You may want to use coconut or sprinkles, dependingly on what you’re serving. Get creative.
  3. Carefully craft your cocktail and pour it into your glass.
