Skinny Kiwi Margaritas are the perfect low calorie summer drink! This drink recipe is going to become a poolside favorite!
Hi guys, it’s my favorite day of the week.
That’s a thing, right?
That’s one thing I really miss about Colorado Springs. The margaritas. We used to go to our favorite Mexican place (3 Margaritas on Powers) at least once a month because they had the best tacos and a ginormous margarita menu. I mean, we were there for 4 years and we didn’t get through the entire margarita menu.
I live in Middle of Nowhere, Texas so there really aren’t decent margaritas around here and whenever I’m in Austin, it’s 9 am or I’m driving or… well, it’s just never the appropriate situation for a margarita.
So I’m forced to make my own margaritas. On Taco Tuesday. Which is probably going to be Cereal Tuesday or Mac and Cheese Tuesday if we’re being completely honest.
These are super easy and super delicious and also, low calorie because y’all know I’m buying my lake pass next month and plan to wear nothing but bikinis through early September.
So these Skinny Kiwi Margaritas are just going to be tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and some pureed kiwis. A squeeze of some liquid stevia to your desired sweetness and that’s it.
I don’t mean to be dramatic but the day I realized I could use liquid stevia instead of making a simple syrup for cocktails changed my life.
If you don’t like the cloudy look of my margaritas, make your puree a few hours before you intend to serve the margaritas and it will naturally separate and you can just scoop the frothy, cloudy stuff off the top.
These may be my favorite margaritas I’ve made. That color with the black specks? I’m obsessed.
- 3 ounces tequila
- 2 ounces orange liqueur
- 2 ounces fresh-squeezed lime juice
- 4 ounces pureed kiwis 2 - 3 peeled kiwis
- 1 - 2 drops liquid stevia
- coarse salt for rims (optional)
Mix tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and kiwi puree together. Add liquid stevia to desired sweetness. In you want salted rims, run a lime slice around the rims of 2 glasses and dip into coarse salt. Fill glasses with ice and pour drink over.
