Skinny Strawberry Margarita ....Happy Friday!

Good Afternoon!

This has been quite a busy week but we are finally at Friday!! Do you have fun weekend plans? We always try a new restaurant on Fridays and then after today we have an entire week to ourselves. So, I thought it only proper to start the weekend like this....

Mmmmmmmmm skinny margarita's! This is a bit of a cheater margarita, but it's Friday...

Start with these necessities....

Then, to give it the restaurant touch I used some organic coconut sugar, dipped the rim of my glass in a little water (which is in the small container to the left) then, I dipped it in the sugar. Was the perfect touch to the drink!

De-vein about three strawberries (I used on big one & two little ones).

Mash those babies up! Make sure you get them super mashed so you have a lot of strawberry juice. The pulp will be floating around in there, but that's ok it let's you know it's *mostly* real!

Then, pour in some of the Skinny Girl Margarita mix & be done! I cut a slit up the middle of one strawberry and used it for garnish. So fun! 

I love this mix because Bethany Frankel, believes in eating real food so the margarita mix is sweetened with agave. It's as real as you are going to get for a pre-made mix and I love that!
Strawberry Margarita
Yields 1
  • Skinny Girl Margarita
  • 4 strawberries, divided
  • Rimming Sugar
Take one strawberry and cut a slit up the center, wipe it around rim, set aside. Dip the glass in sugar. Put strawberry (the one you set aside) on the rim as garnish. In a shaker cup put last two strawberries and mash them up with a fork. Add two ounces of the Skinny Girl Margarita mix. Put lid on and shake vigorously. Pour into cup topped with sugar.

What is your favorite Friday activity? Mine is definitely our New Restaurant Friday's. It's so fun trying somewhere different.
