Happy Cinco de Mayo Guys!
You can bet your bottoms I’m wearing my embroidered top all day today – lol. As well as having a margarita, or two 🙂
If there is one thing I love, it’s a good margarita. But you know me, if I am having a margarita, you know it’s going to be a skinny one! As much as I love a traditional margarita, the sugar in it is just not worth it to me.
I’m not going to lie to you guys and say this margarita tastes just like a traditional frozen one, but it still tastes pretty amazing! It’s super refreshing and still makes me wanna fiesta like there’s no mañana 😉
So what makes this margarita skinny?
There is basically no added sugar, nor fake sugar. It has a higher grade tequila, which is indeed better for you. I substitute triple sec for 1/2 of an orange, and I do not put salt around the rim!
If you’re not making margs at home and are eating out instead, make sure to check out one of my original posts on How To Eat Healthy at Mexican Food Restaurants!
But here’s the recipe!
2- 3 oz Patron (Depending on how strong you want it)
2 Small Limes
2 TBSP Water
1 TBSP All Natural Maple Syrup
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
Then fill the shaker with tequila, water, juice of limes, orange and maple syrup. The shake it up!
Fill the margarita glass with desired amount of ice.
Pour margarita over ice & serve!
Happy Cinco de Mayo Everyone!!
