Skinny Margarita Recipe

Since we can’t travel to Mexico, we’re transporting you wherever you are with the best skinny margarita recipe.

A skinny margarita has all of the components of a margarita, just with way less calories and sugar.

Additionally, a skinny margarita is also a keto cocktail for those on low carb or low sugar diets. Since it has been 100+ degrees in Texas lately, this is a patio sipper that we have been reaching for to quench our thirst during our at-home happy hours.

What is a skinny margarita?

All the flavors of your favorite margarita, with a fraction of the calories and carbs. 

But removing the sugar-laden margarita mix and swapping it out for a healthier sweetener, you’ll have yourself a skinny margarita! 

Skinny Margarita Ingredients

Skinny margarita ingredients

To make a skinny margarita, you just need tequila, lines, and a zero calorie sweetener, like Purecane. Oh and don’t forget the ice and margarita salt! 

Purecane is a zero-calorie sweetener that is derived from fermented sugarcane. It’s all natural and doesn’t have that bitter aftertaste that many no-calorie sweeteners have.

We’ve been swapping out sugar for Purecane in a number of recipes lately, including our peach crisp and raspberry lemon pound cake.

Skinny margarita calories

How many calories in a skinny margarita? That will depend on the tequila you use, but most agave silver tequilas run at about 69 calories per ounce.

Mix that with a zero calorie sweetener and some fresh lime juice and your cocktail clocks in at only 112 calories per drink!

Those sweet restaurant-style margs can range between 500-900 calories per drink!

Make this recipe instead and have another round, guilt free.

Skinny margarita carbs

Pure agave tequila is low in sugar and has zero carbs as a result of the distilling process.

Mixing the tequila with Purecane zero-calorie sweetner means the entire skinny margarita cocktail has only carbs from the lime juice, which is keto approved.

Adding an ounce and a half of lime juice to your skinny margarita will bring the cocktail up to 3.9 grams of carbs.
