Some margarita moguls cringe at the mention of a skinny margarita, but I submit to you that it’s the ingredients AND the technique that make the drink.
A skinny margarita is simply a drink with fewer calories and sometimes fewer ingredients — and for our purposes, this Strawberry Skinny Margarita has fewer carbs.
You should know by now that the absence of carbs in no way equates to an absence of flavor! So, whether you’re having a few friends over or chillin’ poolside, skinny margarita mayhem can abound without leaving its mark on your waistline!
Making this skinny margarita recipe low carb style means that you can use your keto sweeteners and low carb fruits to create a low carb margarita that tastes better than its sugar saturated counterpart…
How to Make a Skinny Margarita
Here are just a few tips to ensure your drinks are delicious and require minimal effort, so you can enjoy all the refreshingly satisfying flavor this skinny margarita has to offer!
First, you’ll need to muddle the fruit. As tempting as it may be, don’t skip this step! Muddling fruit for alcoholic keto drinks enhances the flavor profile and adds layers of yummy flavor. Pro Tip: Avoid using glass for this step. Breaking a glass in the middle of making a drink is just a big mess to clean up and Murphy’s Law says that it will happen at the worst time!
Now, that doesn’t mean that you need some type of expensive tool to get the job done. Use a muddler if you have it. Otherwise, a wooden spoon and a plastic cup work just fine.
Everything else should already be on your low carb shopping list, thanks to all the other low carb recipes you’ve been working up! Trust me friends, cutting skinny margarita calories doesn’t mean cutting flavor!
