Easy Low-Calorie Margarita Recipe for Hot Summer Days


Everyone loves a nice, cold margarita on a hot summer day, but do yourself (and your waistline) a favor and skip the pre-batch this year. Impress friends and family alike by making your own delicious, low-calorie marg at home!

Ingredients, Serves 2:

  • 4 oz tequila, silver
  • 3 oz fresh lime juice
  • 4 oz water (use lime sparkling water to make it carbonated)
  • Optional: a splash of agave syrup if you like it sweet
  • Ice (I liked to use crushed)
  • Sea salt


  1. Sprinkle sea salt on a small flat plate or cutting board. Rub the rim of the glasses with a slice of lime then press the glass into the salt on the plate until it’s coated with salt. Set glasses aside.
  2. Squeeze the limes and add the juice into a measuring cup until you have 3 oz. Add the lime juice to your cocktail shaker.
  3. Pop open that tequila of choice, and measure out 4 oz, then add to your cocktail shaker along with the water.
  4. Add your splash of light agave.
  5. Fill your shaker with ice and get to shakin’!
  6. Use a strainer to pour into your prepared glasses and garnish with a lime.

Now all you need is a beach, backyard, or at least a balcony to lay out on and get a nice Miami tan going. Cheers!
