Recipe: Fresh Citrus Margarita!

This recipe was born out of an incurable love for margaritas and a strong aversion to sugary, high-calorie cocktails at happy hour.

Enter, my Fresh Citrus Margarita. This cocktail is extremely simple and extremely satisfying. Feel free to play with the porportions to suit your tastes.

Fresh Citrus Margarita
1 shot silver tequila
.75 shot triple sec
juice from 1/2 of a lemon
juice from 2 limes (maybe more depending on how ripe they are)
juice from 1/2 of an orange
drizzle of honey (optional)

If you like to sweeten it up a bit, add a drizzle of honey. It’s a great complement to the citrus and you’ll still save hundreds of calories compared to prepared mixes and restaurant versions.

      Hi Jessica! It’s super yummy 🙂 I don’t know the calorie count off the top of my head (I’m not a big fan of counting calories). But it’s basically the calories of the alcohol that you use + the minimal amount of calories from fresh squeezed lime, lemon and orange juice. It’s not much! If you use anything to sweeten it more of course that would add calories too. So try it with out sweetener first to see what you think 🙂 Cheers!
