Why is it called a ‘SKINNY’? Well, as its name implies, a skinny margarita is a lower-calorie version of a regular margarita. Instead of syrupy sweet margarita mixes, the skinny margarita keeps it simple: tequila, fresh lime juice and a flavored liqueur. You won’t get much in the way of nutrition from this drink, but you will save a few calories.
Since I didn’t buy my mix and made it from “scratch” I’m calling this the ‘Skinny Something’… and you’re welcome!
- 12 Mint Leaves
- 1 tbsp. Coconut Sugar
- 1 Lime, juiced
- 1 Grapefruit, juiced (ps. I don’t like grapefruit and don’t normally eat it but a friend dropped one off with our lemons and I just wanted to use it – no offense to the grapefruit)
- 1/3 cup Champagne
- 3 oz Tito’s Vodka
- Ice ccubes
Pour it all in a shaker, shake shake shake and then into a glass 😉 – garnish and make it pretty – Cuz that’s half the fun!
(You could [also in some cases] use a blender ball ‘shaker’ – like at my friend Heathers house – She doesn’t own a shaker – AND she’s a Mom of two >> Heather, you crazy girl!)
