Skinny Cocktails:

unnamed-28unnamed-24unnamed-18unnamed-17My cocktail of choice usually involves tequila.  I’m partial to the flavor and I love mixing it to create a complex taste. Casamigos is my top pick of blending tequila as of late.  I recently experimented with some light cocktails that have all the flavor, minus the calories.  The winner that I couldn’t get enough of replaced agave nectar (as seen in the recipe below) with diet grapefruit Polar soda.  It’s refreshing and easy to drink.  It also paired perfectly with my Spanish meets Mexican themed dinner.

PS: I love salt with my margaritas so I lined the rim of the glass with lime juice and dipped it into salt (which I had poured into a glass wine coaster–the right size and amount of lip).
