Easy Light Lemonade Margarita

Hello again lovelies! I wanted to share with you a super easy cocktail recipe that I came up with the other night. The Hubs wanted to go out for happy hour, but I was on a mission to save a little money, so I checked the fridge for mixers and had an idea. I saw some Minute Maid Light Lemonade in there and thought "huh, a margarita has sweetened lime juice, why not just use lemon?" Mixing in the fresh lime helps cut the sweetness a bit, but using the light lemonade keeps it low in calories. I hope you enjoy this figure friendly cocktail!

Easy Light Lemonade Margarita


  • 2 oz of tequila
  • 1 oz of triple sec 
  • 3/4 cup of Minute Maid Light Lemonade
  • the juice of 1/2 lime
  • a lime wedge for garnish
  • salt to rim the glass if desired


Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake, serve, and enjoy!
