The Most Delicious Skinny Cranberry Margaritas
Life is all about balance–and balancing a holiday cocktail or two is a great way to have fun and celebrate without drinking a ton of extra calories and sugar.
This skinny cranberry margarita recipe uses no sugar, no syrups, no juices, just simple ingredients to make a delicious and easy low cal cocktail.
Is this skinny cranberry margarita easy to make?
Yes! In just a few simple steps you’ll have an amazing cranberry margarita to quench your thirst.
- Grab a glass and fill with ice, I prefer whole cubes.
- Add cranberry juice, tequila, and lime.
- Fill to the top with sparkling water.
- Garnish with sugared fresh cranberries and lime wedges if you choose (looks great on a prepared glass for the holiday season).
You can also dump all of this into a glass with ice or a cocktail shaker and give it a good shake. I’d highly recommend you try it both ways and just decide which way you like. It’s super easy to just dump it all in a glass, which works fine too!
Is this a 21 Day Fix Cranberry Margarita recipe?
Yes! You can enjoy this amazing low calorie cranberry margarita recipe while on the 21 Day Fix. You know I wouldn’t be whipping up margaritas that I couldn’t drink on Fix, right?!
I love making skinny cocktail recipes, especially low cal margaritas. They’e so easy to make with all of the flavored sparkling water that’s available in grocery stores now.
I really like the 100 Calorie Peach Margaritas and the 100 Calorie Watermelon Margaritas as well. All of those are low cal and 21 Day Fix friendly…just in case you need to stock up on some healthy cocktail recipes.
Each one of these low calorie margaritas is a yellow container treat swap if you’re following the 21 Day Fix.
Is this a light cranberry margarita recipe?
You bet! You can enjoy this easy cranberry margaritas recipe before dinner without spoiling your meal. It’s not overly sweet or heavy. It’s a light and refreshing cocktail.
My favorite part is that it’s easy to pace yourself with these cocktails–make one with tequila and then one without! These are delicious both ways.
The light and refreshing taste of these cranberry margaritas is probably why I make them year round. They’re so easy to make that I find myself whipping these up when I want something refreshing that still has the traditional margarita flavors.
Can I make these into a margarita mocktail?
This recipe is so delicious and a little bit bubbly so it makes a great mocktail! You’ll need to leave out the tequila but everything else will stay the same. Add a little more lime juice if you prefer!
Another delicious addition to a mocktail is a splash of apple cider vinegar. Trust me on this one–I’m not a fan of vinegar, but it gives the mocktail a nice “bite” and it’s delicious! I didn’t believe this one until my sister in law made one for me recently.
Is this a Weight Watchers cranberry margaritas recipe?
Every recipe is a Weight Watchers recipe! Thanks to the Blue Points program we’re able to enjoy just about anything we like as long as we have points to cover it.
For each serving of this cranberry margarita recipe you’ll need 5 Blue Points. I would use a low or no sugar added variety of cranberry juice if you want to lower the points. A diet cranberry juice drops the points to about 3 per serving.
What do I pair these low calorie cranberry margaritas with?
If you’re looking for some healthy appetizers to pair these margaritas with, I have those too. Celebrating doesn’t need to be done with extra calories–there are plenty of ways to make any celebration a healthy one! A small plate in one hand and a cocktail in the other is how I like to enjoy the holidays :)
