In honor of Cinco De Mayo 🇮🇹 AND beach season, I present you with the Leanest Libations in all of the land! A skinny mini margarita, a fun and frothy alternative to the calorie-offensive pina colada, and a fabulous beach day drink that will keep you tipsy and hydrated at the same time! Drink up, my friends! #CincoDeDrinko
🍈 Super Lean Lime & Chili Margarita (90 calories )
This margarita is truly a rare gem. Both big in flavor and extra light in calories. You can’t make a margarita with less calories than this! Not possible. The chili-lime rim gives it the kick it needs and the smoothness of a high quality tequila (such as my fav – Patron silver) makes it dangerously drinkable. #MargaritaMama
- 1 0z of Patron Silver
- Juice of 1 1/2 lime (about 1.5 0z)
- 1 0z water
- Tajin (A chili-lime seasoning)
- Liquid stevia drops (3-4 small drops) *My favorite brand is SweetLeaf
First, spread a little Tajin on a small plate. Next, sweep a juicy lime wedge around the top rim of your glass and dab around in the spice to create a delicious chili-lime rim. Set aside.
In a separate glass add ice, Patron, lime juice, water, and stevia. Give it a quick stir and gently transfer to your rimmed glass. Careful not to disturb the Tajin rim – it’s the best part!
🍍 Pinana Coco Colada (150 calories)
Stay super slim and stewed with this frothy cocktail. At around 150 calories per serving, it is a great alternative to a calorie dense pina colada! Subbing coconut vodka for coconut milk or mix eliminates SO many calories! The banana acts as the thickener that the drink needs for a comparable consistency to a pina colada. Plus potassium!
- 3 oz Ciroc coconut vodka
- 1 banana
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1/4 cup fresh pineapple juice or ½ cup pineapple chunks
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend thoroughly. Add more ice or juice depending on the consistency that you prefer.*These measurements will make 2 drinks.
👙Skinny Chi Chi (80 calories)
This drink is a light and tasty summer sipper that is perfect for a beach day buzz! #BeachBodyBuzz
- 1 oz Ciroc coconut vodka
- 1/4 c of pineapple juice
- Club soda/sparkling water
- 2 lime wedges squeezed
Mix all ingredients together. Done. Yum.
**Most vodkas are made from grains or potatoes. Ciroc is one of my favs because it is made from grapes and is less carb-y than other vodkas. And if you are gluten-free, this hooch is a safe bet.
Be sure to Uber home!
