Skinny Margaritas

As part of my skinny series, I wanted to provide you guys with some yummy cocktails in addition to food recipes. This one is super easy to make and doesn't use anything artificial. I hope you enjoy!

Look how perfectly ripe these citrus fruits are!

Juice the oranges and limes and store the juice in a pitcher. I use this citrus juicer to make things faster.

Add 1-2 slices of cucumber, quartered.

Add 2-3 mint leaves.

Add a slice of orange, quartered.


Add ice and 1-2 tsp of truvia nectar. (depending on your preference of how sweet you want it because this stuff is very sweet!)

Add 1/2 shot of cointreau and 1 shot of of silver tequila.

Top with juice and club soda. Garnish and serve.


12 limes
6 oranges
1 cucumber
Fresh mint
Truvia nectar
Club soda
Silver tequila


Start by juicing your limes and lemons and reserve it in a pitcher. Each of these cocktails are made individually because they taste and look the best this way. Begin by cutting two thin slices of cucumber and quartering them. Add three pieces of mint and one slice of orange and muddle. Add a small amount of ice. Add 1/2 shot of cointreau and 1 shot of tequila. Next add 1-2 tsp of truvia. Follow by filling the glass with juice until there's about 1/2 inch left in the glass. Mix the drink in a cocktail shaker and pour back into your glass. Top the beverage with club soda and garnish with a lime and mint leaf.
