Summer Skinny-ish Margaritas

We are sharing our not-so-guilty summer skinny-ish margaritas … or… any time of the year skinny-ish margaritas 🙂 We tested out a bunch of variations of this recipe and have found our favorite.

Skinny-ish Margaritas
Ingredients – Serves 2
– 4 oz tequila
– 1 oz 100% orange juice
– 2 Tbsp light agave nectar
– 4 Tbsp fresh lime juice – around 4-5 limes
– 3 oz cold water
– Ice
– Sea Salt to coat the glass rims

– Cocktail shaker – you don’t need one, but it looks a lot cooler than using a swizzle stick to mix the drinks.
– Citrus juicer – we used this one and loved it KitchenAid No-Mess No-Stress Citrus Squeezer.

Let’s get started !!!

Sprinkle sea salt on a small flat plate or cutting board. Rub the rim of the glasses with a slice of lime then press the glass into the salt on the plate until it’s coated with salt. Set glasses aside.

Roll your limes on a cutting board with your palm.  This helps maximize the amount of juice you extract from each lime.

Squeeze the limes and add the juice into a measuring cup until you have 4 oz. Add the lime juice to your cocktail shaker.

Pop open that Patron, or your tequila of choice, and measure out 4 oz, then add to your cocktail shaker.

Grab 3 oz of ice cold water and add it to the mix.

Measure out 1 oz of orange juice and add it to the cocktail shaker.

Add 2 Tbsp of light agave syrup to your cocktail shaker.

Throw in a few ice cubes to get this party started.

Shake in the cocktail shaker for about 5 seconds then strain the mix out equally into the two glasses.

Enjoy everyone! Cheers!!
