Ri’s Skinny Margarita

All Beverages Mexican/Latin Flavors


There is just something about a good classic margarita.

I don’t know about you but there is something about a good margarita that makes me feel like I’m on vacation.  I could literally be in my living room sipping on one but immediately get  those carefree vibes!

I find most margaritas too sugary, with way too much agave syrup added in.  Here is how I make my killer margarita at home!

If you do enjoy a slight bit sweeter margarita, you can add a few drops of monk fruit sweetener, but personally the cointreau and orange juice is good for me.

I warn you, these babies might be lower in sugar, but they pack a punch so please drink responsibly!

Want to give your margarita a little twist?

  • add a few slices of fresh jalapeños for a spicy margarita.
  • Add some fresh tropical fruit like mango or pineapple or swap the orange juice to pineapple juice for a more tropical flavor.
  • Add fresh spices to the mix like ginger, lemongrass, or lime leaves for a fresh take.
  • Throw some strawberries in while blending for a beautiful pink and fruity version.
