Low Calorie, Low Sugar Margarita

We'll call it the 'skinny' margarita! But way better than those mixes you buy in the store full of nasty fake sugar, which I loathe!

Try this today, or any day, for an incredibly refreshing and fun cocktail.

Add more or less tequila per your personal preference. I am not a huge tequila fan, but I find, with this recipe, I love it! As long as I spring for the top shelf stuff. Yeah. Sometimes I don't, but certain alcohols call for the goods :)

'Skinny' Margarita:
Makes... Maybe 6 drinks?? Depends on how strong and fruity you want your drinks. I like the 'spritzer' theory... Fun but not 'college drunk crazy' :)

Juice of 6 limes
Juice of 3 oranges
8-12 oz top shelf tequila
1/2 cilantro bunch stems, wrapped in string
Fizzy water
Cava, or other dry bubbles

In a pitcher, combine lime and Orange juice with tequila. Drop tied cilantro stems into the pitcher and let sit (up to overnight!)

To serve:
In a 16oz mason jar, pour 1/4 juice/tequila mixture, 1/2 fizzy water, and top with your bubbles.

Light, not too sweet, super refreshing, and low cal, ole!
