Happy Cinco de Mayo!

I love margaritas, but know they can be high in calories so I've tried making my own "Skinny Margarita." I use 2 shots tequila, 1 shot triple sec, splash of sour mix, and fresh squeezed lime juice. I mix with ice in a cocktail shaker, rim the glass with a lime wedge, and dip in margarita salt. I like mine on the rocks. Delicious!!

Bethenny Frenkel is also known for the "Skinny Margarita." Check out her recipe here and watch it on YouTube. 

You can use a variety of glasses for margaritas: double old-fashioned, martini, traditional margarita glasses, etc. I love these new glasses from Crate & Barrel:

Below are some other options:
C&B Zazz Margarita Glasses:
Pottery Barn Baja double old-fashioned glasses set of 6 $43
Pottery Barn: set of 6 Baja goblets $64
Target: 7-piece set $25
