I’m a sucker for a good margarita. However, I’m not a sucker for high-calorie, super-sweet cocktails. So I put my own spin on a recipe for Puro Margaritas I found on Tequila.net.
I took their simple recipe and added a splash of club soda and Gran Marnier, making it top-shelf and about 175 calories. It sure makes for one delicious Friday afternoon treat!
WHAT YOU NEED:
– 1.5 oz. (1 shot) Patron Silver Tequila
– 1 lime, juiced
– 2 tsp Agave Nectar
– 1 splash of Club Soda
– 1 splash of Gran Marnier
– A slice of lime, to garnish
Pour one shot of tequila into a cocktail shaker.
Then add the agave nectar.
Cut lime in half. Using a hand-held citrus juicer, juice both halves of the lime into the drink shaker.
Add some ice to the shaker.
Place lid on cocktail shaker and shake, shake, shake!
Pour mixed margarita into a margarita glass and add extra ice to drink.
Pour a splash of club soda into the margarita.
Then add a splash of Gran Marnier to the margarita.
Garnish with a slice of lime and enjoy! (You can also put a rim of salt or sugar on the glass before serving, if you prefer.)
My Fresh Top-Shelf Margarita is a refreshing way to start your weekend and contains fewer calories than a traditional margarita. Now you can savor your favorite cocktail without feeling guilty about ruining your diet!
