Ingredients

For 1 Skinny Margarita:

  • 3 tbsp silver tequila
  • 1 tsp agave syrup
  • 1 1/2 key limes juiced (or 1 large lime)
  • 1 Lime wedge  to rim the glass (optional)
  • Salt to rim the glass (optional)
  • ice as desired

For a Pitcher:

  • 1 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup 
  • 1 cup lime juice  (about 5 medium limes)
  • 4 lime wedges  to rim the glass (optional)
  • 1/2 cup salt  to rim the glass (optional)
  • ice as desired

Instructions

To Rim the Glass: 

  • Pour the salt onto a small plate.
  • Rub the lime wedge around the rim of the glass.
  • Dip the glass into the plate of salt. It will stick to the glass.
  • Set it aside.

For One Skinny Margarita:

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

For a Pitcher:

  • Prepare the glasses with the salt rims.
  • To a large pitcher, add the tequila, lime juice, and agave syrup.
  • Stir with a spoon to combine.
  • Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
  • Refrigerate up to 4 hours.
  • Add ice to the glasses.
  • Serve and enjoy.

Notes

Do not add ice to the pitcher. The ice cubes will melt and will water down the margarita.
