This skinny margarita recipe is lightened up with fresh orange juice and always tastes so delicious!


  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila blanco
  • 1 ounce freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • 1 ounce freshly-squeezed orange juice
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons agave nectar, for sweetener (optional)
  • ice
  • lime wedge and coarse salt for rimming the glass (optional)


  1. Salt the rim (optional). Run a lime wedge (the juicy part) around the top rim of your serving glass. Fill a shallow bowl or plate with salt, then dip the rim until it is covered with your desired amount of salt. Set aside.
  2. Make the margarita mix. Add tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker. Shake or stir vigorously for about 10 seconds to chill. Give the mix a quick taste and stir in your desired amount of agave if you would like a sweeter drink.
  3. Serve. Fill the prepared serving glass with ice. Strain in the margarita mix, garnish with a lime slice, serve and enjoy. Cheers!
