Skinnygirl Cocktails Recipe: Classic Margarita

Margarita400After I made this drink famous on The Real Housewives of New York City, it became so popular that I launched my Skinnygirl Ready-to-Drink Cocktail line with it. Here’s the at-home version from Skinnygirl Cocktails that couldn’t be easier to make.

2 ounces white (clear) tequila (100% agave)
Small splash of triple sec or other orange or citrus liqueur
Large splash of fresh lime juice or 4 lime wedges
Splash of club soda, to lighten it (optional)
Lime wheel, for garnish

Combine the tequila, triple sec, and lime juice in a rocks glass filled with ice. (If you’re using lime wedges, squeeze them into the glass.) Top it off with club soda, if you like, and stir to combine. Garnish with a lime wheel.

VARIATIONS: You can also make this into virtually any fruit flavor you want by adding a splash of juice. Try grapefruit, orange, pomegranate, or anything else that sounds tasty.
