Health Tip of the Day: Skinny Margarita Recipe 

It's a great day for a Margarita! This skinny margarita recipe is incredibly light and refreshing for less calories! Made with just fresh lime juice, fresh orange juice, agave, and tequila. The recipe is for one margarita but can be easily multiplied. 

Ingredients

1 1/2 ounces silver tequila (about 3 tablespoons)

3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1 large or 1 1/2 small limes)

1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice (about 1/2 medium orange)

1 teaspoon light agave nectar (add 2 if you prefer a sweeter margarita)

Ice

Directions: 

To rim the glass: kosher salt, lime wedge

Fill the glass 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 (it’s longer than you think). Strain into the rimmed glass over the ice. Enjoy immediately.

Make it your own with fresh fruit! Or try grapefruit juice in place of orange juice!
