FAQ for Skinny Margaritas

Can I use a different type of soda instead of Fresca?

Absolutely! While Fresca adds a unique flavor profile, you can experiment with other clear sodas like Sprite Zero or flavored sparkling water to achieve a similar refreshing taste.

Can I make these margaritas in advance?

Yes, you can! Prepare a batch of the margarita mixture in advance and store it in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, simply pour over ice and garnish with lime and salt for a quick and hassle-free drink.

Prep Time 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce silver Tequila

Instructions

  • Using a low-ball glass, if you decide to salt the rim, dip the top of your glass in a bowl of water and then into a plate of salt. You may need to kind of turn it on the plate to get a good coating.
  • Once the rim is salted, over crushed ice, add your tequila, Fresca, and fresh lime juice. Give it a quick stir, and you are on your way.

Notes

You can always add some chamoy to the salted rim as well!
