Skinny Kiwi Margaritas

A fun take on the traditional “skinny margarita” — this Skinny Kiwi Margarita is a healthy option for festive summer sips made with fresh kiwis, orange, and lime.

I hope you didn’t get all cocktailed-out yesterday because boy do I have a delicious libation for you.

Today’s Skinny Kiwi Margaritas are a by-product of my post-finals, day-after-Cinco de Mayo festivities and a surplus of ripe kiwis.

I’m a pretty strictly red wine drinker but I make exceptions for holidays, and finishing my first year of grad school definitely qualified as one.

Skinny margs (when made right) have always been a favorite of mine.

Despite many restaurants’ addition of fake sugar or other low-calorie sweet and sour mixers, you really don’t need artificial ingredients to make this drink delicious. A good silver tequila and some fresh citrus will do the trick just fine.

For this version, I decided to get fancy and toss in some leftover kiwis I had in the fridge. The result — a delightfully subtle and sweet summer cocktail that looks and tastes amazing.

While I included the option in the recipe to add honey or stevia for flavor, I think the drink is sweet enough with just the fruit.

I hope you’ll try it out this out the next time you need a fun cocktail for your summer soirées!
