Simple Skinny Margarita Recipe

Simple Skinny Margarita Recipe

I think we've nailed the perfect skinny margarita recipe using kitchen staples. It's extremely fresh - there's no sugary syrups or store bought liqueurs. This cocktail really highlights the freshness of the lime and has a little sweetness from honey. Hope you enjoy!

Time: 3 minutes / Quantity: 1 margarita


As always, you want to use fresh, quality ingredients. 

  • 1 Lime
  • 1 Lemon wedge
  • 1tsp of honey - a little squeeze will do
  • 2oz of premium blanco tequila - Espolon is our favorite
  • High-grade sea salt (optional)
  • Ice


  • Serving glass
  • Spoon or stirrer
  • Cocktail shaker


  1. Slice a lime wheel or wedge for garnish.
  2. Squeeze remaining limes into cocktail shaker. Add lemon juice, honey, and tequila -- no ice. 
  3. Stir well to incorporate the honey.
  4. Add a cup of ice to the cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously until the mixture is cold -- about 15 seconds, you're trying to get it cold and create a little foaminess.
  5. Optional - Salt the rim of serving glass.
  6. Strain cocktail into serving glass over ice. 
  7. Garnish with lime wheel.
