Skinny Blood Orange Margaritas – the perfect low calorie margarita recipe! This is gorgeous and perfect for parties!
Heeeey guys, happy Wednesday!
I feel like I haven’t shared a cocktail in forever.
But, you know, I buy a bag of blood oranges every time I’m at the store just in case it’s the last time I see them. And I have 3 children which means that I’m at the store at least every other day.
I swear half my fridge is blood oranges right now.
Anyone else finding that the blood oranges this year just aren’t as red as they usually are? Mine have all been a dark orange color with orangish-pinkish juice. Whatever, still amazing, still beautiful.
One of my deep dark secrets is that I never use simple syrup when I make a cocktail.
All my recipes that talk about simple syrup? I handed those to somebody else and made another with splenda.
Look, I know it’s not good for me but I’d rather use those calories on literally anything else.
But I made the switch over to liquid stevia (this isn’t sponsored – I just can’t believe it took me so long to use it) recently and it’s kind of changed my life. I put it in my coffee every morning but the real reason I love it is that it’s perfect in cocktails because there’s no dissolving anything.
So I used it in these Skinny Blood Orange Margaritas which are just like my regular Blood Orange Margaritas but we’re not fussing around with a simple syrup this time. It’s just blood orange juice, lime juice, the booze, and a tiny squirt of whatever liquid no calorie sweetener you like. Put it on ice in a glass with a salty rim and you’re done.
Make them before the blood oranges disappear.
- Mix tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and orange juice together. Add liquid stevia to desired sweetness. In you want salted rims, run the lime slices around the rims of 2 glasses and dip into coarse salt. Fill glasses with ice and pour drink over. Top with lime slices if desired.
