skinny marg recipe

18 January 2013

have you missed me friends? because i've missed you! just in time for the weekend, i have my very  favorite skinny margarita recipe to share.

a few tips for you:

use 100% agave tequila for best taste. all tequila is made with agave, so look for 100% on the
label.

you can use top shelf orange liqueur, like grand marnier, for enhanced taste, but quality tequila is
more important.

if you prefer a margarita “up” (no ice), condition the glass by filling it with ice cubes and topping
with water prior to making your marg. empty out the ice and water before pouring margarita.

if you prefer a frozen margarita, pour margarita into blender and fill ½ full with ice cubes. blend
until smooth and enjoy!

Delish!! We makes ours very similarly. 2 shots tequila, 2 shots fresh squeezed lime juice and 1 shot agave nectar. Shake with ice and serve. Yum!
