Skinny Margarita

Classic margaritas pack a lot of calories because of all the sugar from the mixers. I love serving a fantastic margarita at summer parties and I know some of my guests are watching their calories so I make sure to use this particular recipe. This is a great low-cal version of the original and tastes absolutely amazing – guest-tested. Use the best liqueurs you can afford.


  • 3 ounces really good tequila
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1-ounce vodka
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier
  • 1 package sweetener
  • Cocktail salt


  1. Use the rind of the lime to wet the top of a glass and rim it with salt
  2. Combine all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Add 8-12 ice cubes and shake for 20-30 seconds.
  3. If you prefer a blended margarita, place the Ingredients into a blender with 6-8 ice cubes.

    That’s five ounces of alcohol in one serving. Is that really the intent?

    • Yep! This drink can be shared. An alternative is also to replace the Grand Marnier with 1 ounce of orange juice, which will reduce the overall alcohol content.
