Check out this tasty skinny margarita recipe: “Blood Orange Faux-Rita”

May 3, 2013 -- Published by

I know everyone is pumped about celebrating Cinco de Mayo this weekend, but do yourself a favor and skip all the sugar loaded margaritas and treat yourself to this easy skinny margarita recipe that uses fresh ingredients. It’s tart, tasty, and unlike Tequila, Clique Vodka doesn’t have any carbs!

Fill a margarita glass with ice, and add: 1 1/2 oz Clique Vodka, 1/2 oz of freshly squeezed lime juice (about half a lime), 1 oz freshly squeezed blood orange juice (1/2 a blood orange), and 1/4 oz agave nectar. Pour contents into a cocktail tin and rub the used lime half around the outside of the glass rim, then dip in salt to coat. Pour the margarita back into the salt crusted glass and garnish with a blood orange wheel. Of course if you prefer your margaritas up, you can just shake all the ingredients over ice and strain, or for frozen margaritas just toss everything into a blender!
