The Best Ever Skinny Grapefruit Margarita

The Best Ever Skinny Grapefruit Margarita

I am thoroughly obsessed with anything grapefruit! These skinny grapefruit margaritas hit the spot! They're the perfect drink for Spring/Summer. Light, fruity and sparkling. What could be better?! They are also low in calories and the only sugar is a tiny splash of simple syrup (you can totally leave it out though) and the grapefruit juice. You HAVE to use fresh squeezed or they're just not the same. Here is the super simple cocktail recipe you'll want to make again and again!

I love the Polar sparkling seltzers the best!

If you're celebrating Cinco De Mayo this year, you'll definitely have to make this margarita! Serve along side your favorite guacamole, chips and salsa. This cocktail is so light and refreshing, I can drink it all Summer long.

Do you freshly squeeze your citrus? Since I purchased a citrus juicer, I've been making a lot more fresh squeezed juice.

Another favorite grapefruit cocktail is grapefruit and vodka with a splash of soda. It's also super light and refreshing.

For our fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, I like this stand up manual one!
