This margarita! It is my favorite. Not because it has a lot fewer calories but because it tastes so good. Everyone I have made it for loves it. Nobody has said, this tastes watered down, or this sucks!  It is because the flavor is perfect. The trick to getting this super low-calorie margarita is in the mix. I use a low-calorie mix that doesn’t add extra sugars.

Try my other skinny cocktail: Prosecco Strawberry Cocktail. It has 97 calories.

Ingredients list for a Skinny Margarita

  • Master of Mixes, Margarita Mix Lite. This is the secret sauce! This mix has 10 calories per 4 ounces and no added sugars.
  • Patron Silver. Patron Silver makes the best margarita. The calorie count for 1.5 ounces of Patron Silver is 99 calories.
  • Grand Marnier. Between Grand Marnier, Cointreau, and Triple Sec, Grand Marnier has fewer calories. For half an ounce of Grand Marnier, it is 38 calories.
  • 1 lime wedge. The juice from one lime wedge is not enough to count toward calories.

In this video, I am using Cointreau. For lesser calories use Grand Marnier.

How many Calories are in a Skinny Margarita?

This skinny margarita has 144.7 calories per serving. That is half the amount of calories you would drink versus a regular margarita mixer.

I do not rim the glass with sugar (duh, this is a skinny cocktail) or with salt.
