Perfectly Skinny Margaritas

I miss the days when I could have a REGULAR margarita. You know the fabulous concoction smoothly pouring out of the machine at your favorite “Cheers” or dining establishment? Rewind about 30 years ago…yes…30, when I was in my 20’s and not a sugar care in the world. As time marched forward I began to not feel so great after a night of a regular margarita consumption filled with a subpar sweet-and-sour mix that is sure to send you home with tummy issues. It was time to shift gears. I’m just going to put this out there. I am picky…poor bartenders that must deal with me as I am a bartender’s nightmare. I often ask, how is it so difficult to make a margarita, so I developed a recipe that is PERFECT for me, hence the name. My recipe is sweetened naturally and made with fresh juices…NOT too sweet and a balance is key. Enjoy!

Perfectly Skinny Margaritas

Servings 1
Author Chef Tiffany Blackmon


  • Kosher Salt or Tajin
  • 2 Oz. Silver Tequila
  • 1.5 Oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • 1 Oz. Fresh Orange Juice
  • 1 Tsp. Light Agave Nectar, or to taste
  • 1 Lime Wedge or Round, for garnish


  • Fill cocktail shaker with ice. Add tequila, lime juice, orange juice and agave. Shake for 30-45 seconds.
  • Pour into salt rimmed glass (if that is your preference), garnish, and serve immediately.


~I use 100% agave tequila labeled white, silver or Blanco.  Our favorite is Silver Patron or Don Julio Silver.
~With or without salt?  Line half the rim of your glass with salt or tajin so you can control how much salt you taste with each sip.  Pour a layer of salt or tajin onto a small plate.  Run a lime wedge around half off the rim of your glass.  Dip the top of the glass into the salt or tajin at a 45-degree angle and roll it from side to side to cover the rim of the glass

I’ve found the easiest way to juice limes is with a handheld juicer like this one HERE.  However, when juicing in bulk, I LOVE this electric press HERE.
