Delicious Skinny Margarita Recipe!

By Rob Poulos...

Finding lower calorie or lower fat recipes is something we all could use, particularly when it comes to alcoholic drinks. Those big beautiful drinks served at your favorite restaurant are a calorie and fat minefield, sometimes with as much as 600 calories per glass! Wouldn’t it be great if you could find a skinny version of some of the most popular drinks?

Yeah, we thought so too which is why we’ve created this skinny margarita recipe. The key to skinny cocktail recipes is serving size and ingredient list. If you can keep both of these on the low end you can enjoy cocktail hour without regretting it tomorrow. Whether you like your margaritas frozen or on the rocks, this is one recipe you’re sure to enjoy!


  • 1 ¼ oz. tequila
  • ¾ oz. triple sec
  • ½ cup ice cubes
  • 1 lime wedge
  • ¾ oz. fresh lime juice
  • ¼ oz. sweetened lime juice (like Rose’s)
  • Margarita Salt (optional for glass)


  1. FROZEN: Combine tequila, ice, triple sec and juices in blender.
  2. Run until smooth.
  3. Garnish with lime wedge.
  4. ON THE ROCKS: Fill cocktail shaker with ice.
  5. Add all ingredients except lime wedge & salt and shake for 15 seconds.
  6. Strain into margarita glass and garnish with lime wedge.

Tip: Run lime wedge around rim of glass then dip in margarita salt for a perfectly rimmed glass.

Change It Up

There isn’t much you can do to change up a margarita recipe but you can definitely change the flavor by replacing the juice with fruit. The key is to stay away from those pre-made margarita mixes because they have so much sugar—which means fat—that you’ll drown your sorrows in more margaritas out of despair!

Make different flavor margaritas by:

  • Add one cup fresh strawberries, pineapples or watermelon to blender.
  • Add 1 cup of sorbet to blender.
  • Use fresh fruit juice for on the rocks.
  • Try gold or silver tequila.
  • Experiment with tequila of different ages for an enhanced flavor.

Finding alcoholic beverages that you can enjoy without worrying about fat, calories or carbs is a must for anyone trying to lose those last few pounds. Let’s face it; giving up the occasional beer or cocktail isn’t likely to happen so rather than pretending, it’s time to be proactive and find a way to fit these drinks into your fat loss plan.

Besides, think of how impressed your friends will be when they find out that you’re a closet bartender! They never have to know that these drinks are “skinny,” only that they taste good so grab your cocktail shaker and get going!
