Skinny Margarita is a "thing". It's a lower-calorie alternative to the well-loved sugary counterpart that many of us gave up drinking in our 20s. I have come to learn that this recipe is a great guilt-free way to relax on a Saturday evening that doesn't leave me with a sugar hangover on Sunday morning.
All I can promise is that when I serve this skinny margarita recipe, everyone enjoys this drink.
We crafted this simple Skinny Honey Margarita for you and your friends. As with any great recipe, use the very best white tequila, the best honey, and the freshest produce you can find, skipping the pre-made mixes!
