Skinny Citrus Margarita

Happy Hour starts NOW! No matter the day. That is basically the theme of Quarantine, right? We definitely are missing the days of meeting girl friends at the bar for drinks and socializing, and we REALLY miss margaritas. We think a good marg is the official drink of Arizona, and the official drink of spring. Although, to be honest, we enjoy a good margarita any time of year. This Skinny Citrus Margarita is the first alcoholic recipe we have created and are SO EXCITED to share this one with you!

We used to be dedicated to all things Tito’s but as we have grown older and wiser (and more prone to nasty hangovers) we have converted. We are tequila people now. Costco actually has a really solid Kirkland brand tequila if you are looking for an inexpensive recommendation, although there are SO many great tequila options!
