Yes, Bethenny Frankel has her Skinny Girl Margaritas, and I make what I like to call a Skinny Bitch. My bestie Kari and I have tweaked the living hell out of this until we got it just right. Long hours, late nights, laboratory grade test studies…well, we’ve drank a lot of them until we kissed the right frog. By just right I’m referring to a delicious adult concoction without the guilt of it’s original counterpart.

A typical Margarita has something like 540 calories in a 12 oz margarita glass, whoa! This has roughly 100-130 (more if you feel the need to add agave nectar). It’s not that I propose this as being healthy…I do not. But hey, if I’m gonna have something I enjoy, why should it have all the sugar?

OK, here’s what you need to make yourself the ultimate Skinny Bitch Margarita:

  • Patron Silver or your choice of tequila
  • soda water
  • ice
  • limes, lots of them

It’s equal parts, tequila and soda water (more if you’re brave) over ice. You will then squeeze the bejesus out of a lime to cut the strength. Garnish with a lime wedge. That’s all folks.

This is it in it’s simplest form. Bottoms up, responsibly of course;)
