Bethenney Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York and inventor of the "Skinny Girl Margarita", is working on an entire line of low calorie cocktails, soon to be available at an upscale bar/lounge near you. I think it's a good thing, being a part time party girl, myself. Who couldn't use a little help shaving off those unnecessary calories while having a good time? She's also invented a low calorie Mojito. Sounds interesting!
Here is the recipe for her Skinnygirl Margarita:
2 oz Clear Premium Tequila
Tiny splash of Orange Liquer
Juice of four Fresh Lime Wedges
Combine all ingredients over a glass of ice and garnish with a lime wedge
Makes one serving
I'm thinking that the lesser calorie count is due to a scanter dose of the triple sec (orange liquer) and using fresh lime juice instead of margarita mix.
Next time I'm out, I'll definitely try one of these!
