 Fresh Lime Juice for Your Skinny Margarita 

I love making a margarita this way because I feel like I am making a cocktail out of fresh and natural ingredients, not to mention it legit tastes better than the skinny margarita mix you can buy. Using fresh limes for a cocktail recipe is truly the hidden secret of making your margarita recipe taste superior. If you’re thinking of making these skinny margaritas often I would recommend buying a citrus juicer. A small gadget that is life changing.

  2. Add tequila and agave and stir to combine.
  3. Pour the sea salt on a bottom of a small plate. Rim the glass generously with a lime wedge and then dip the glass into the salt, twisting the glass to coat the rim generously with salt. (You could also use sugar if you want a sweeter margarita or to help balance out the spice.)

Notes:

  • For a less strong margarita add a few tablespoons of sparkling soda

    We doubled the recipe and added a quarter cup of triple sec, muddled 1 jalepeno with half of the seeds and a couple of fresh limes then strained.

    […] If you are not a fan of rum, you can also make a mojito with vodka.  Vanilla flavored vodka would be a great choice. I wouldn’t recommend making a mojito with tequila, but if you’re looking for a delicious tequila cocktail, try my skinny jalapeño margarita recipe. […]
