The Skinny Margarita Recipe

By Gayot Editors

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.

INGREDIENTS:
. 1½ oz. tequila
. 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice
. ¾ oz. Agave Nectar
. ¾ oz. pure water

METHOD:
• Pour into iced shaker.
• Shake all ingredients with ice.
• Add lime juice or agave nectar to taste.
• Serve on the rocks, no salt.
