Skinny Fruit Margarita

Just in time for Margarita Day on February 22, I am sharing with you this Skinny Fruit Margarita so you can enjoy it, too, without giving away all your calories in just one drink!

I first enjoyed this margarita at our favorite resort in Cabo San Lucas.  The bartender there told me that the OJ in the recipe has fewer calories than the orange liqueur that he normally uses, which is why it is called "skinny."  That sounds good to me!

We've also had some amazing margaritas in other parts of the world, like this delicious one in Sedona called the Prickly Pear Margarita, the Lucha Margarita in Saint Louis, and this Beerita that we made at our home!

A quick little Google search informed me that there is a bit of controversy around who invented the margarita.  I found this little tidbit in the Texas Monthly that I found the most likely to be true:

Thus, although later pioneers may also have duplicated the discovery, the Margarita was invented in 1942 by a Mexican, now Mexican-American named Francisco Morales. It was named after a flower, not a girl—though people joke about it being named after Fran­cisco’s wife, whom he married in 1956.

Whatever the true story may be, I still love the drink, especially when it is hot in Mexico.  Here's my little take on this delicious cocktail!

  1. I never thought about using agave nectar for sweetening. I am going to use this the next time I make a drink. I usually just use a simple syrup but this is much healthier.

  2. I've always wanted to know what made a "skinny" one just that! That sounds easly peasy. I'll have two!

  3. Yum! A skinny margarita is just what I'm looking for!

  4. This looks so refreshing! But you had me at "skinny"!

  5. I guess it depends on what type of orange juice you use. If it's fresh, then yes! But premade? Those have almost as many carbs as the Grand Marnier. Either way it looks delish!
