It’s too bad I didn’t come up with this recipe before Cinco de Mayo, but you know what they say…anything worth having is worth waiting for, and this skinny margarita recipe was definitely worth waiting for. I love me a good, fresh margarita. The problem is that good margaritas are hard to come by, lots of bars use cheap tequila and sugary, calorie packed sour mix. Drink those and you’ll end up with nothing but a guilty conscience and a gauranteed hangover. Today’s skinny margarita recipe is everything but that, it combines fresh ingredients with my absolute favorite Bai mango juice for a taste that’s SO GOOD you won’t believe it’s SKINNY too!
Cucumber Mango Skinny Margarita [recipe]
4 oz. 100% blue agave tequila
6 oz. Bai Malawi Mango Juice (can substitute for regular mango juice, but this serving of Bai has less than 5 calories!)
1 tbsp fresh lime juice
3 tbsp. diced cucumber
In a cocktail shaker, add 1 cup crushed ice, tequila, Bai mango juice, lime juice and diced cucumber, shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Split into two glasses (including crushed ice), then top each drink off with a splash of soda water. Garnish with a fresh cucumber wedge and enjoy!
