Total Time:
5 mins
This skinny margarita recipe is incredibly light and refreshing for fewer calories! Made with just fresh lime juice, fresh orange juice, agave, and tequila.

Ingredients

For One, Classic Skinny Margarita:

  • Kosher salt — & lime wedge, to rim the glass
  • 1 1/2 ounces silver tequila — about 3 tablespoons
  • 3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice — about 1 large or 1 1/2 small limes
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice — about 1/2 medium orange
  • 1 teaspoon light agave nectar — add 2 if you prefer a sweeter margarita
  • Ice

For a Pitcher of Skinny Margaritas (5 Drinks):

  • 8 ounces silver tequila — (1 cup)
  • 8 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice — (1 cup, from about 5 medium/large limes)
  • 4 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice — (1/2 cup, from about 4 medium oranges)
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar — or simple syrup, more if you prefer a sweeter margarita

Instructions

  1. Rim the glass: Pour a thin layer of salt onto a small plate. Rub a lime wedge around the top edge of your glass to moisten it, then dip the glass into the salt so that it sticks, tapping all the way around. Fill the glass with ice and set aside.
  2. For one (or two) drinks: fill a small cocktail shaker with additional ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave. Tightly close and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds (it's longer than you think). Strain into the rimmed glass over the ice. Enjoy immediately.
  3. For a pitcher: In the bottom of a pitcher, stir together the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave (do not add ice to the pitcher). Serve immediately (prepare the glasses as in Step 1) or place a sheet of plastic wrap over the top of the pitcher and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
