Other skinny cocktails I love are Basil Cucumber Gin Coolers, Citrus Margarita Spritzer, Iced Green Tea Mojito and Watermelon Martinis to name a few.

It seems like everyone on TV is making a Skinny Cookbook these days. The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice just came out with a new cookbook called Skinny Italian. Bethanny Frankel, from the Real Housewives of New York has a cookbook called the Skinnygirl Dish and is the creator of the much hyped Skinnygirl Margarita.

  3. People, stop trying to mess up a good thing. Crystal light, club soda … Meh. A true Rita has certain components… Premium clear tequila, real FRESH lime juice & orange liquor…. Ice & some salt on the rim. Anyone who needs overly sweet mixes and artificial flavors, just dosent like tequila or margaritas…. The piña coladas are to the left. 

  4. So good! Used 16oz glass filled with crushed ice. Followed instructions, then topped off w/ diet Sierra Mist. So good! Better than most restaurants! Thank you Gina!!!

  5. Crystal Lite has all that artifical crap! Try using lemon-lime Zevia soda. Found at Super Targets and Whole foods. Zevia is great! Lots of different flavors. you can get coupons on their website and on their Face Book page.

  6. Crystal Light now sells Margarita and Mojito flavored drink mixes (5 calories per cup). Add 3/4 oz tequilla for 2ww points+ (not bad at all!)

  7. Miss Gina ~ I came to your site by trying to find the Skinny Girl margarita recipe – tryin to save $$ and make everything ourselves vs buying the bottle, anyway, I got sidetracked looking at all the beautiful pictures and reading all the wonderful, healthful recipes! EXCELLENT JOB MA'AM! Thank you for all your hard work, time and effort. I will bookmark this page and refer to it daily. Thank you again, and God Bless! April

    well, I would like to say my margarita was delicious, but it was just foul!!! Couldn't find the orange liquor….so thot maybe we could go with out it….nope!! It was awful!!! So, we wanted to try the pom martini, and can't find the pom juice in our little town….we tried tho!!!

  11. I just had to share….I just purchased at Wal-Mart the Great Value brand a light drink mix called Lime Margarita. It's great. I made a glass and added a shot of tequila. Not bad a 16oz margartia…for two points!!!! Also noticed Bethany F has a skinnygirl margarita pre-made…it was $12.50 and 37.5 calories for 1.5 oz….not a great deal on points.

  12. I add 1/2 tsp of agave nectar to sweeten it a bit and when some of the ice melts, the drink is great!
