Variations for a Skinny Margarita
Add club soda for a touch of fizz
Shake ingredients with a couple slices of jalapeno for a spicy kick
Muddle fresh fruit, such as blackberries or strawberries at the bottom of the glass for a fruit margarita
For a more tart drink, leave out the fresh orange juice and cut back on sweetener
Try fresh herbs, such as basil or cilantro, shaken with the ingredients. The herbs also go well with fruit additions.
For a frozen skinny margarita, blend all the ingredients with 1/2 cup FROZEN fruit and a few ice cubes.
Skinny Margarita PitcherA pitcher of margaritas contains about 11 drinks, or about 6 cups (48 ounces). To juice large amounts of citrus I use this citrus press. However, this is a more affordable option.
2 cups tequila
1 1/4 cup lime juice (about 10-14 limes)
2/3 cup oj (about 3-4 oranges)
2/3 cup triple sec
1/2 cup agave nectar or simple syrup
Place all ingredients in a large pitcher, mix well, and add ice. Serve with glasses of ice, rimmed with salt, and additional lime wedges.
