What Makes this a Skinny Margarita?


This “Skinny” margarita is made with fresh  lime juice and a little agave for sweetness,

instead of using a pre-made margarita mix that has tons of sugar.

This fresh lime margarita also doesn’t have artificial sweeteners

like a low calorie option you can buy.

How to Make an Authentic Margarita


A true margarita recipe is made with  a few ingredients: fresh squeezed lime juice,

a high quality tequila, orange liqueur (I prefer Cointreau), and a hint of sweetness. Not from a pre-made mix.

The Best Skinny Margarita Recipe



(makes 2 cocktails)

  • 2 oz silver tequila
  • 2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice (juice of 3-4 limes)
  • 1 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz light agave nectar
  • Ice
  • Coarse sea salt
  • Lime wedges for garnish


  1. Squeeze some limes. I like our citrus juicer, much easier than doing it by hand.
  2. Pour sea salt in a shallow dish. Generously run a lime wedge over the rim of your glasses, then turn it upside down and twist to salt the rim.
  3. Combine tequila, cointreau, lime juice and agave into a shaker filled with ice.
  4. Shake,  then pour into your ice-filled glass and enjoy!


  • add more agave if you want your margaritas on the sweet side.
  • skip Cointreau or triple sec if you’re truly watching the calories, however don’t for a true authentic taste
  • don’t use cheap tequila, and don’t use the most expensive one either. Somewhere in the middle is best
