Classic Margarita

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/classic_margarita.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2012

This skinny margarita recipe saves 150 calories compared to traditional margarita recipes made with syrupy-sweet margarita mix and gets back to the basics—fresh lime juice, tequila and Triple Sec are all you need. Adding lime zest to the salt rim gives great flavor and cuts the salt in half.

4 servings, about 2/3 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine lime zest and salt on a small plate. Combine lime juice, seltzer (or club soda), tequila and Triple Sec (or Cointreau) in a pitcher. Rub the rim of four 10-ounce glasses with the lime wedge and dip in the lime-salt. Fill the glasses with ice and top with the margarita mixture.
