orange italian margarita

Typically, we drink wine, Pinot Noir and Sweet Red are our favorites. This evening, an end to a rather wet humid week, I decided to surprise my husband with one of his creations: The Italian Margarita. This time, with orange. The Skinnygirl Margarita is fantastic as far as keeping the calories down but, and this has to be said, it tastes like nothing.

We have tried several times over the years to drink it, as it comes, and we just can’t. That does not mean it shouldn’t be purchased; you can use it as a very low calorie base and build upon it.

You will need:

  • Skinnygirl Margarita
  • Orange
  • Disaronno Amaretto
  • Shaker
  • Margarita Glass (to be honest, I am very strict about putting the correct liquid in the correct glass but, I’ve had this in a solo cup and it’s still fantastic)

Put ice in your shaker, 7 oz of Skinnygirl (or, just eyeball it), a splash of Disaronno (that heavenly amaretto taste) and squeeze half of an orange. If you want, you can zest the orange and add it to salt to rim the glass like we did. Shake, shake, shake.

Stick a slice of orange on the side.

Enjoy your weekend!
