Last year, Ali of Gimme Some Oven and I collaborated to make skinny margaritas that are fresh and flavorful. One dream I thought for sure died with my twenties was a watermelon margarita. I just knew I would never be able to “afford” that many calories again. Thankfully, I was wrong! Honestly, I didn’t even realize how incredible a fresh watermelon margarita could be after years of drinking pre-mixed margaritas at restaurants! The pureed fruit was sweet enough to limit the amount of agave nectar needed & was far superior to those I indulged on a few years ago.
As I was getting ready to make a batch of skinny margaritas for the weekend, I felt like I had to share my go to with you – a fresh watermelon margarita. It’s a taste of summer and so refreshing. As you can see, I’m a no salt girl.

Chris frequently requests my classic skinny margarita. Honestly, it takes just about 3 minutes to make and is worth every second. What’s your favorite margarita flavor?
