Dave’s skinny margarita recipe from last week’s Cooking with Liz was a HIT. I wanted to share the recipe here in case you want to refer back to it. I am not a huge liquor fan but when I do drink it it is usually always tequila. Margaritas are my jam but I hate when they are too sweet. That’s why I prefer to use fresh citrus and soda instead of any sort of mix. But I promise with this recipe you won’t miss the extra sugar. They’re fresh and delicious and pair perfectly with my easy weeknight enchiladas and taco dip!
Skinny Margarita Recipe
- good tequila (I love Casamigos Reposado)
- flavored soda (we use grapefruit or lime LaCroix)
- fresh juice from 1 lime
- fresh juice from 1 lemon
- fresh juice from 1 orange
- Trader Joe’s chili lime seasoning, or we also love Casamigos Salt Rimmer if you want to get extra festive!
- optional sliced jalapeño if you like a little extra spice
Pour some TJ’s chili lime seasoning or salt rimmer onto a plate. Grab your favorite cocktail glass (love these ones, too!), take a lime wedge and wet the rim and then coat the rim in the seasoning/salt! Add ice to your glass and fill with 1-2 oz of tequila. Fill your glass 3/4 of the way with soda water. Use equal parts lime juice and lemon juice* followed by a splash of fresh orange juice. *the more citrus you use the better! Enjoy!
It feels silly even giving you this recipe because it is so easy but trust me, it’s delish! I don’t have exact measurements of each item, just taste as you go and see what you’re missing. You can even add some sliced jalapeño for a little spice!
