Skinny Margarita

Jump to Recipe

It's almost the weekend. I'm throwing a little carnitas taco party. Skinny Margaritas will be readily available and same with the guac. While I mentally prepare for Saturdays feast, let’s all grab the ingredients to make a skinny margarita or two and celebrate this 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!

    So refreshing! Found a neighbor with a grapefruit tree, another with an orange and we have limes. This is a delicious and easy way to use all 3.

  3. Loved this skinny margarita! I used pink grapefruit; however the margarita was still a yellowish color. What did you use to make yours so pink? So so good! Thanks!
