Who doesn't love a good margarita, and who doesn't love it even more when it's festive AND skinny?!
Skinny Cranberry Margarita
makes 1 margarita
2 ounces tequila
juice from one lime
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons skinny cranberry syrup (recipe below)
salt or sugar for rim
extra lime wedge for rim
fresh cranberries to float
Sprinkle about a tablespoon of salt or sugar on to a small plate. Rub the lime wedge around the edge of your glass, then turn it through the sugar or salt to coat the rim.
Fill a large shaker with ice. Add your tequila, juices, and cranberry syrup. Shake for about 30 seconds, then pour into your prepared glass. Drop in some fresh cranberries for garnish. Cheers!
Skinny Cranberry Syrup
2 cups powdered Stevia
2 cups water
1 ½ cups fresh cranberries (also tastes great with fresh raspberries, blueberries, and ginger)
Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, then lower to a light simmer. Cook it for about a half hour and cool. Pour the mixture through a sieve to strain, and allow to cool completely before use.
