Celebrate National Margarita Day With Our 144-Calorie Cocktail

Celebrate National Margarita Day With Our 144-Calorie Cocktail

Before you celebrate National Margarita Day at your local bar or restaurant, make this low-calorie recipe at home. Not only will it taste better, but you’ll also save on calories – a lot of restaurant and bar margaritas are made with mixers that contain corn syrup and ingredients you can’t pronounce. This recipe, which purists will love, has only 144 calories and uses natural, simple ingredients.

Classic Margarita

From Michele Foley, POPSUGAR Fitness

Notes

The margarita has been riffed on several times over, but being a purist, I’m a fan of the classic recipe. And while “classic recipe” may be debatable, the popular 3-2-1 formula (3 parts tequila, 2 parts lime juice, and 1 part Cointreau) is the one I always go back to. Salt is optional.

If you find this recipe too tart for your taste, the tiniest amount of agave syrup should do the trick.

Ingredients

  1. Ice
  2. 1 1/2 ounces 100-percent agave blanco tequila (I use Espolón or Herradura)
  3. 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  4. 1/2 ounce Cointreau

Directions

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, and Cointreau. Shake the ingredients together until chilled, strain into a rocks glass filled with ice, and enjoy!
