Some of my favorite things in life: Margaritas, and holidays that Manhattanites use as a thinly veiled excuse to drink margaritas. It's time for Cinco de Mayo parties, my friends, and SkinnyGirl Cocktails has cooked up some recipes for us to enjoy.
Margarita de Celebracion
·5 parts Skinnygirl® Margarita
·Sliced jalapenos, muddled
·Lime wedge for garnish
·Salt for rim
Preparation: Salt the rim of margarita glass. Pour Skinnygirl® Margarita over ice and add muddled jalapenos. Garnish with lime wedge.
·5 parts Skinnygirl® Sweet’arita
·Handful of frozen grapes
·Sugar or Splenda for rim
·Lime garnish (optional)
Preparation: Coat the rim of a margarita glass with sugar. Pour Skinnygirl® Sweet’arita over frozen grapes and garnish with a lime. If you're not into mixing up your drinks, and prefer the kind that are already made, try the 2 newest additions to the SkinnyGirl line: Sweet’arita and Sparkling Margarita. Sweet’arita has the same low calorie count as the original (less than 100 cals per serving) but is a little sweeter for people who are into that, like myself. Sparkling Margarita is fun for those who are into the bubbly (again, like myself!). It's slightly sweet, with a hint of line and plenty of fizz; the perfect drink for summer.
