One of my favorite holidays is Cinco de Mayo and it’s almost here! Cinco de Mayo captures so many beautiful things: chips & salsa, queso & guacamole, fajitas and margaritas! Who doesn’t love going out to eat when margaritas are involved? My 5 ingredient skinny margarita is stupid simple to prepare and oh so delicious.
I’m not a huge tequila drinker but when it comes to margaritas, I can put some tequila down. My boyfriend and I probably eat Mexican cuisine once maybe even twice a week. Living in Austin, tacos and margaritas are literally everywhere.
For this recipe you will need:
2 oz (1/4 cup) good tequila (we like Espolon)
1 1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp fresh orange juice
1 tsp light agave nectar
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until ice is pureed and smooth.
Pour into a chilled margarita glass and garnish with lime.
