Skinny Margaritas

Prep Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 10 mins

Lighten up a classic with this recipe for skinny margaritas - an easy, at-home cocktail with fresh orange and lime juice, a little agave syrup, and no liquor other than the tequila.


  • coarse salt, lime wedges, ice, for serving
  • 2.5 ounces silver tequila
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup


  • Pour a thin layer of salt onto a small plate. Rub a cut lime wedge around the top edge of each glass, then gently press the glass into the salt so that it sticks. (I love to rub the lime only 1/2-3/4 of the way around, so you can control how much salt you get with each sip!) Fill glasses with ice and set aside.
  • Fill a small cocktail shaker with additional ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave. Tightly close and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Strain over ice into the rimmed glasses. Enjoy!
