♥ Skinny Girl Margaritas

Monday, July 18, 2011

There's nothing like a cold margarita on a hot summer day.  My Mom is known for her sensational margaritas (seriously, she only JUST gave me her secret recipe last year) but the only problem...500 calories a pop, obviously not very conducive for bikini season.  Thus, therefore, hence...hello Skinny Girl Margarita.  I'm sure you've heard about Bethenny Frankel's 100 calorie recipe but have you tried it? It's gotten mixed reviews but I LOVE it.  Not too salty, not too sweet.  In my opinion, just perfect...
 
What you need
2 oz of Clear Premium Tequila
Tiny splash of Orange Liquor
Juice of four Fresh Lime Wedges
A splash of Grand Marnier or Triple Sec 

Combine all ingredients over a Mason Jar of ice and garnish with a lime wedge
Enjoy!

OOhhh delicious! Have you seen the SkinnyGirl margs in bottles? Though I do like that you can tweak it if making it from scratch.

Yes!! Margs = summer for me, but since bikinis, short shorts and mini sundresses do, too, keeping a sharp eye on those calories is key! Thanks for sharing :)
