Cocktail Recipe: Alex's Skinny Margaritas

Cocktail Recipe: Alex's Skinny Margaritas

Published by Alex on Jan 06, 2022

I watch what I eat.  I like Margaritas.  Here's a great recipe for a skinny margarita that doesn't suck or give you heartburn.

This dilemma plagued me when I started really watching my intake.  I finally got sick of Vodka and Soda and started experimenting with Tequila and Lemonade.  It wasn't bad but it didn't scratch my margarita itch.  After a few years of playing with this recipe, I've found a winner.

I've been asked about it enough times that its time to share it.  

Ingredients

  1. Altos Silver Tequila - I've used just about every tequila from Cuervo to Clase Azul in a Margarita (hey sometimes I'm out of Altos).  Save the expensive stuff for sipping, Altos stuff makes THE BEST margarita period.  I buy the 1.75L for around $50 in Atlanta.
  2. Gran Gala Orange Liqueur - there are more expensive and "better" orange liqueurs out there but this one works!  Use it sparingly because this has sugar in it.  
  3. Tres Agaves Margarita Mix - my early recipes just used the lemonade but its just better with a little of this.  $8 per bottle
  4. Minute Maid Zero Sugar Lemonade - key to keeping the calories and sugar down in this drink.  Lately this is hard to find.  It sometimes comes in a can or small bottle.  I buy it whenever I see it, even if I have 4 at home.  Please leave me some.  $3

Directions

  1. I suggest making these in batches.  It's really annoying having to mix a cocktail with 4 ingredients and it holds in the fridge well.  I use a RubberMaid MixerMate 2Q and pour everything into the measured lines.  When I say 2 measures below you just go up 2 lines. 
  2. Add 2 measures of Tequila
  3. Add 2 measures of Mix
  4. Add 4 measures of Lemonade
  5. Add .25 measures of Gran Gala.   You can control the sweetness with this and add more or less to your taste.
  6. Mix well
  7. Pour into a glass (or yeti) with plenty of ice.
  8. Enjoy


Options

  1. Turbo - If you are having a party and want to make sure people are up and going late try adding about 1 measure of Rockstar Orange to each pitcher.
  2. O3 - this is a nice alternative to Gran Gala but it is not easy to find.
