Nor-Cal Skinny Margarita Recipe

Lately I’ve been celebrating a bit.

I published a book about blogging, you know. There are a million little milestones to celebrate along the way and if I celebrated with a margarita each time, I’d be in trouble.

These super skinny margaritas do help a bit, though. They’re delicious, and low calorie.

A friend of mine recently introduced me to the Nor-Cal margarita, a margarita that many Crossfit members indulge in because of the low sugar content. They’re yummy, and not overly sweet like so many are.

Friends, I introduce you to the Nor-Cal Skinny Margarita.


For each margarita, you’ll need:

1 shot of tequila

1 lime

Club Soda

You might also want a few drops of simple syrup or stevia (we use and love Sweetleaf brand), to add sweetness


1. Squeeze a lime into your glass with ice (pulp and all)

2. Add a shot of tequila

3.  Fill with club soda

4. Add a few drops of Stevia or simple syrup if you’d like

Each margarita is about 150 calories, includes 5 grams of carbohydrates, and 5 grams of sugar (unless you add sweetener or sugar).

Enjoy your margarita free of extra calories and ingredients found in many margarita mixes. And you can’t tell me that you have an easier recipe!
