Drink Outside the Box

Those looking for an alternative to the traditional Margarita, which typically includes an orange liqueur such as Cointreau, might enjoy a “Skinny Margarita”. Made with 100 per cent organic agave nectar, the “Skinny Margarita” cuts down on calories and alcohol content, resulting in a healthier, all-natural beverage. Extracted from the blue agave plant, the nectar features a lower glycemic index than sugar while maintaining the same sweetness and solubility.

. 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
. ¾ oz. Agave Nectar
. ¾ oz. pure water
