Hola! In the spirit of “Cinco de Drinko,” it’s inevitable we’re going to indulge in a marg or two today. So today I’m sharing my fave recipe for my homemade skinny margarita. I love to use fresh ingredients whenever possible, and with this recipe there’s no need to even bother with sweet n sour. Keep it FRESH.
BUT! What’s a margarita without a little salt? To me, salt on the rim of the glass MAKES the margarita. If you do add salt, just rim ½ the glass. It adds just enough to compliment the bite of the tequila.
- 1.5 oz Tequila
- 1 oz Cointreau
- 1 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
- 1 oz grapefruit perrier
- 1 squeeze of fresh lime
- 1 squeeze of fresh lemon
- Margarita salt
++Add grapefruit juice, lime, lemon, perrier, cointreau and tequila (in that order) into a shaker. Add ice. Shake, shake, shake. Use a lime to rim the glass and dip in salt. Add ice to the glass and pour over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.
What’s on YOUR Cinco de Mayo menu for tonight? We’re having Fajitas with grilled chicken and shrimp, lots of fajita veggies, fresh salsa, and black beans. It’s a FIESTA!
