Spicy, Skinny Margarita Recipe

Skinny Spicy Margarita Recipe | Hustle + HalcyonHi Wieners.

With Taco Tuesday ( a very serious holiday by my standards ) comes this skinny-mini, spicy margarita recipe. I’ve been really obsessed with playing around with different cocktail recipes to make them just a tad healthier/lower cal without being disgusting. I’m kind of a baby when it comes to most alcohol ( aka if I can taste it, I will vom ), BUT I also prefer my drinks STACKED with liquor.

Like I said yesterday, I’d like to have my cake and eat it too, please.

I adapted this marg recipe from Gimme Some Oven’s original recipe so I can do just that (& so can you, beebuses).Skinny Spicy Margarita Recipe | Hustle + HalcyonSkinny Spicy Margarita Recipe | Hustle + HalcyonSkinny Spicy Margarita Recipe | Hustle + Halcyon


[ Makes 1 Drink: double, triple, etc for more! ]

What You’ll Need:
♥ 1-2 Shots of Vodka or Tequila
♥ Juice from half a lime (or more to taste)
♥ Agave Syrup to Taste
♥ Splash of Orange Juice
♥ 1/2 a Cucumber
♥ 1/2 a Jalapeño
♥ Chili Powder & Sea Salt for Rim
♥ Extra Lime/Jalapeños/Cucumber for Garnish

♥ Add liquor, lime, agave, orange juice and cucumbers to a blender, and blend until very smooth (think almost juice) which will be about 1 minute.
♥ While blending, coat the rim of your glass with lime & dip in mixture of chili powder/sea salt.
♥ Muddle Jalapeños into shaker (to desired heat/or just muddle straight into the glass instead), then strain mixture from blender into cocktail shaker. Add ice & shake vigorously to combine.
♥ Strain margarita into chili powder & sea salt rimmed glass (over lots of ice!).
♥ Add garnish, and enjoy!

This margarita is so refreshing & light (thanks to the cucumber), and it has a little kick of spice (with the jalapenos and chili powder). Gahhhhh, I want one right now.

I like my drinks verrrrrrry flavored (aka spicy, spicy, spicy. i.e. this smoothie recipe) to cover the liquor taste, but not super sweet. This little skinny margarita is PERFECT for me. I make sure to add lots of jalapeno & lime to mine, and I always prefer vodka to tequila (I know, I’m no fun).

    Hi Payton – Very interesting skinny margarita recipe, but you forgot to total the calories to prove its a ‘skinny’ margarita. Your choice of spices and vegetables to make this drink is very doable and daring. I’m going to make some of these drinks and I’ll comment taste wise then. You also have a unique way with words or maybe you are very young, but it is also refreshing to read a non-stuffy blog.
