Skinny Margarita's!


I made these for the first time on Cinco de Mayo and could not have been more impressed! I'm not a massive tequila fan but these were out of this world and I'm sure will be a staple over the summer!

These margaritas are a meager 184 calories versus around 550 calories for your average restaurant or homemade margaritas made with powder blends instead of fresh ingredients!

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • Coarse ground sea salt 
  • 2 oz (1/4 cup) silver tequila (recommend 100% agave Hornito's)
  • 1.5 oz fresh squeezed lime juice (approx. 3 tbsps or 1.5 limes) (**See tip at bottom of page)
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed orange juice (2 tbsp or 1/2 Medium orange)
  • 2 tsps light agave
  • 1 lime wedge for garnish

Directions


Pour salt on plate. Run lime wedge around glass and dip in salt.

On the rocks:
Pour tequila, lime juice, orange juice and agave into a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake for 30 seconds. Pour in margarita glass over ice. 


Frozen:
Pour tequila, lime juice, orange juice and agave over 1 cup ice in blender. Blend until frozen.


**TIP- If you like your margarita's a little on the sweeter side, cut back one portion of lime juice and add 1-2 portions of orange juice extra to your liking.
Enjoy!
