My favorite summer cocktail recipe! The skinny margarita recipe! | M Loves M @marmar

My Skinny Margarita Recipe

Hi friends! Who is ready to make a delicious BOMB cocktail? I’m all about a citrus drink and I love a good skinny margarita recipe. I try to keep things on the healthy side where I can though, by opting for less sugar and X-ing mixers that are filled with all sorts of funny ingredients.

I’ve been making this skinny margarita recipe on the regular and I’ve gotten several requests for it on social media, so I had to do a video! This is such a fun and easy cocktail for summer, and you could even make a pitcher of it for a party!

Here’s how you make it!

Skinny Margarita


Course: Drinks
Servings: 1 drink
Ingredients
  • Kosher salt or coarsely ground sea salt
  • 2 ounces ¼ cup silver tequila
  • 2 ounces 4 tablespoons/about 2 small limes fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce 2 tablespoons/about ½ of a medium orange fresh orange juice
  • 1-2 teaspoon light agave nectar
  • 1 lime wedge or round for garnish
Instructions
  1. Pour a layer of salt onto a small plate (preferably one just slightly larger than the top of your margarita glass). Slice off a small piece of lime and run the wet edge of the slice along half of the rim of your glass. Dip the top of the glass into the salt at a 45-degree angle and roll it from side to side to catch the salt. Add ice cubes to your glass and set it aside.

  2. Fill a small cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the tequila, freshly squeezed lime and orange juice and agave nectar. Put on the lid and shake for 30 seconds. Strain the liquid into your glass and garnish with a slice of lime.


Alright I hope you all enjoy my go-to skinny margarita recipe! There’s something so refreshing about the citrus combo and it’s amazing on a hot night! Feel free to customize it too! Want it to be more tart? Add extra lime juice. Or more agave for sweetness. And if you want to be spiiicy you can add a jalapeno. For this recipe, I’d use about ¼ of a jalapeno, seed it and slice it up and then add to a cocktail shaker with the other ingredients. Shake it up and strain into your glass! Yum!

What to Wear When You’re So Sick of Shorts

What to wear at the end of the summer. | M Loves M @marmar

Raise your hands if you’re so sick of shorts?? Me!! I’ve been trying to find options for what to wear when it’s so hot outside but I don’t want to wear shorts. While I love a dress, sometimes I want a more casual option. Jeans are usually my go-to in those casual situations, but when it’s 80/90+ degrees, I just can’t even think about having my legs covered. Today I’m sharing what to wear when you’re so sick of shorts, but still want to look casual and cute for the day ahead! I hope this outfit gives you some inspiration for our (hopefully) final days of heat!

My daily wellness routine keeps me feeling healthy and happy! | M Loves M @marmar

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday! I don’t know about you, but the summertime can get so exhausting! Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have multiple kids running around because it’s hectic enough with just one! As I’ve gotten older, and especially after having Augustine, I’ve realized how important it is to take daily steps towards my own personal health and wellbeing. Today I thought I would share my daily wellness practices. I try to do most of these things daily, but of course there are days where some are skipped. Although, I will say, that on the days I skip one of these practices I feel totally off. It’s interesting how these wellness practices have become such an important part of my day. I’d love to hear your daily wellness practices below if you have any, or ones you might be working towards.
