Skinny Margarita: a Lighter Twist on the Classic

What is a Skinny Margarita? All the taste, the excitement and the fresh flavour of a delicious Margarita, combined with less alcohol and less sugar content: it’s the perfect answer for those who are looking for an easy sipper, keeping it responsible and delicious. Along with the ever-increasing mindfulness and self-consciousness, the quest for this kind of recipes has definitely become a driver for drinkers’ choices: the Skinny Margarita is the ideal solution.

Ingredients For A Skinny Margarita

You can’t call it a Skinny Margarita without its main character: 100% Tequila Blanco is the agave spirit you will need to concoct this low ABV cocktail, a twist on the traditional Margarita recipe, one of Mexico’s most famous cocktails. Don’t forget fresh lime juice and fresh orange juice for some aromatic zing, and the intriguing sweetness of the agave syrup. Depending on your personal taste, you might add a rim of salt to the rim of your glass.

Following are the ingredients you will need for a Skinny Margarita:

  • 50ml 100% Tequila Blanco such as Espolòn
  • 40ml freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 30ml freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 10ml agave syrup

How To Make A Skinny Margarita

If you want to know how to make a Skinny Margarita, here are the key steps you should follow:

  • Pre-chill your shaker by stirring a few good quality ice cubes in it; then remove the ice and excess water;
  • Pre-chill a cocktail glass by storing it in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before serving, or filling it up with ice while concocting the cocktail;
  • Combine all the ingredients in the shaker;
  • Add more good quality ice cubes and shake vigorously;
  • Strain into the pre-chilled cocktail glass

Tips For A Perfect Skinny Margarita

To achieve the perfect Skinny Margarita recipe, try adopting some, or all of the suggestions that follow, to elevate your drinking experience:

  • Quality over everything else: use quality ingredients to maximize the taste and the enjoyment of your Skinny Margarita. Start with a good quality tequila, which should be 100% agave;
  • Freshness is key: it is very important to use freshly squeezed orange and lime juice, avoiding the pre-made mixes that could alter the quality of the tequila and thus influence the overall taste;
  • Cold is good: remember to pre-chill the shaker and the glass you will serve the cocktail in, to enjoy the Skinny Margarita at the perfect temperature;
  • Double or nothing? Depending on your taste, you could opt for a double strain, to avoid the tiny ice cracks generated by the shake (and the eventual residue from unfiltered orange juice) to go into the glass. This will give your drink a smoother texture.

Skinny Margarita vs Regular Margarita: What's the Difference?

As the name might suggest, a Skinny Margarita is a lighter version of a regular Margarita. A Skinny Margarita substitutes the orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier, of a traditional Margarita with a combination of agave syrup and orange juice, thus giving the cocktail less complexity and a lighter structure, keeping the subtle orange flavor intact. This maintains the identity of a Margarita intact, allowing for an easier, less impactful sipping experience.
