Downtown Skinny Margaritas

Fresh Margaritas for Entertaining

I like to keep things as fresh as possible and this no sugar margarita is a great way to celebrate without the overly sweet store bought mix.  This weekend is Cinco de Mayo, a celebration of Mexico’s underdog defeat of the powerful French army in 1862 and a reminder for some of just how many times Mexico has been invaded by other countries and stayed resilient. For many, it marks the start of the thaw, a journey towards summer, and a reason to have a fiesta.

I call this a Downtown margarita because I serve it up over a large piece of ice in an old fashioned glass.

No Sugar Added Cocktail

Some might call this a skinny margarita. I call it the best margarita. It tastes better than any sugary, processed version from a bottle and it’s better for you, by far! This is my basic entertaining margarita and I make it spicy with jalapeños, but you could add any fresh fruit to the mix.

If the lime is too tart for your palate, add a bit more fresh squeezed orange juice. You can also try fun rim trimmings like coconut sugar or warm spices like cinnamon. This no-added-sugar cocktail makes a refreshing libation for a summer barbecue, a friends night in, or a Saturday evening in with some good music and your favorite person.
