Skinny Margarita

Updated: Apr 1

The Dish: At just 185 calories, this skinny margarita has plenty of flavor! This is combination of many margarita trials and fails to find a refreshing and enjoyable skinny margarita. You can decrease or eliminate the agave if you prefer no sweetener. Enjoy!


Serving Size: 1 cocktail


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 ounces Tequila (For this recipe I like Casamigos Blanco)

  • 1/4 ounce Cointreau

  • 1/4 ounce Fresh Orange Juice (juice from about 1 wedge, I used a naval orange)

  • 1 ounce Fresh Lime Juice (about 1 whole lime, with 1 wedge saved)

  • 1/2 teaspoon Agave

  • 1 teaspoon Sea Salt

  • 1 Lime wedge


DIRECTIONS


If you like salt on the rim: Pour the salt onto a plate or cutting board. Cut a slit in the lime wedge and go around half of the glass being used. Drag the lime-rimmed glass through the sea salt.


Start here if you do not like salt on the rim: Fill glass with ice and set aside.


In a shaker, combine tequila, Cointreau, orange juice, lime juice, agave and a pinch of the sea salt. Fill with ice and shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds.


Pour into ice-filled glass, add lime wedge as a garnish, and enjoy!
