TGIF. Am I right? This past long weekend killed me. I think 3 day weekends should be the norm? When I’m class president I can promise we’ll make that happen. While I work on that, let’s all enjoy a skinny margarita or two and celebrate the weekend!
Skinny Margaritas are the only way to do a marg in my opinion. I can’t stomach all the sugar that goes into a traditional margarita – so it’s skinny all the way. The best part about this recipe is that you can jazz it up with any number of citrus juices. Depending on the season you could rock blood oranges, satsumas, tangerines, oranges, grapefruits… I mean we could go on for days. Bottom line, citrus juice, great tequila, a bit of lime juice and some sparkling water. It’s the best skinny margarita you’ll ever have and I promise you’ll be pumped when you wake up in the morning without that sugar hangover. Because, no one wants one of those!
Cheers to the weekend!
