For 1 Skinny Orange Margaritas:

  • 1 Lime wedge to rim the glass
  • Tajin to rim the glass
  • 3 tbsp silver tequila
  • 1 1/2 key limes juiced (or 1 large lime)
  • 1/2 medium orange juiced
  • 1 tsp agave syrup or more for a sweeter margarita
  • ice as desired

For a Pitcher:

  • 4 lime wedges to rim the glass
  • 1/2 cup Tajin to rim the glass
  • 1 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 1 cup lime juice (about 5 medium limes)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice (about 4 medium oranges)
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar (or more for a sweeter margarita)


To Rim the Glass: 

  • Pour the Tajin onto a small plate.
  • Rub the lime wedge around the edge of the top part of the glass.
  • Dip the glass into the plate of Tajin. It will stick to the glass.
  • Set it aside.

For One Skinny Orange Margarita:

  • Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave.
  • Close the shaker with the lid.
  • Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.
  • Add ice to the rimmed glass.
  • Strain the cocktail into the glass.
  • Drink immediately.

For a Pitcher:

  • Prepare the glasses as in Step 1.
  • To a large pitcher, add the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave.
  • Stir to combine.
  • Cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
  • You can refrigerate up to 4 hours.
  • Add ice to glasses.
  • Serve and enjoy immediately.


Instead of Tajin, substitute with salt or sugar. 
Pro Tip: Do not add ice to a pitcher. The ice cubes will melt and will water down your margarita.
