To make a skinny girl margarita, you will need:
- 2 oz of clear premium Tequila
- Splash of orange liquor
- Juice of four fresh lime wedges
- Splash of Grand Marnier or Triple Sec
- Fill a cocktail glass with ice.
- Pour all ingredients over the ice. Garnish with a slice of lime. Makes one serving.
A splash in mixology is enough to give the drink the flavor of the ingredient. To give you an idea of a splash, it would equal about 1/4 to 1/2 of a teaspoon. Adding a splash is a complete judgment call depending on how intense you want the flavor of the drink you are mixing.
Mixed drinks taste better chilled. Rinse a cocktail glass in clear water and place in the freezer for 30 minutes before mixing a skinny girl margarita.
When adding ingredients to a skinny girl margarita, be conservative at first. You can always add more but you can’t remove what you have added if the drink becomes too strongly flavored.
