More About This Recipe

  • Since it’s January and the start of a new year, we are always thinking about health and trying to lose those extra few pounds gained over the holidays. We also want to lose them without having to give up a social drink here and there. There are many alternatives to the calorie-packed party margaritas, but this Skinny Grapefruit Margarita recipe is definitely one of my favorites. Two important tips when making this margarita: Use fresh ingredients, and Only a small amount of sugar or sugar alternative such as agave. This will make the drink a bit tart, but still refreshing while keeping the calorie count down (also your pants size! Yay!). Grapefruit is also a great source of vitamin C and has plenty of antioxidants as well. Here's a secret, it’s actually known to help the body burn fat! Yup, drinking while burning fat, sounds good to me! After being bombarded with rich and heavy, cream-based drinks during the holidays, it’s always nice to lighten things up in the New Year and make something that will conjure up thoughts of spring. So break out that citrus and get squeezin’! Happy New Year!
