What is in a Margarita?

The classic margarita recipe calls for tequila, triple sec or some orange liquor, and lime juice. This skinny margarita recipe substitutes the orange liquor with agave syrup to cut the calories without losing flavor.

What is Agave Syrup?

Agave syrup (or agave nectar) is a common natural sweetener used in food and drinks. It is often used as a substitute for sugar, simple syrup, honey, and molasses to sweeten cocktails, tea, and coffee.

You can find the agave syrup in your grocery store, usually near the honey or other sweeteners.

How to Make an Agave Margarita

If you like salt with your margaritas rub a lime slice around the edge of the glass and dip into a plate of kosher salt prior to making the margarita. Shake all ingredients together and pour over ice.

This recipe is easy to tweak and try new flavors-simply add an ounce of fruit puree to the mix and the possibilities are endless!

Now the only question is…salt or no salt?
