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.

  1. 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!)

  2. 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!!!

  6. 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.

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

  8. Oh my God under the poits plus the margarita is only 1 POINT!!!!! I must be doing something wrong!

  9. Hi Gina, your recipe looks good. Do you think it's 4 points on the new system? When I calculate it I come up w 1 point. I am wondering if your carbs are right. White Wine is like 4 points for 4 ounces. Thanks! Brigette

  10. I've been drinking the crystal light hungry girl margarita for a couple years now…. what can I say… I'm an addict. However, I do recommend trying different flavors of crystal light though. I love using the strawberry for a strawberry margarita and the fruit punch is to die for. Try whatever flavor of crystal light you enjoy, mix up a drink and enjoy the moment!

  11. This is an awesome site. I just happened upon it looking for Skinny Girl Margarita.
    I LOVE margarita's but not the calories. I replaced the mix with Fresca. No calories, no sugar, and it tastes great. Tequila, splash of Orange Liquer, limes and Fresca. YUM!!

  12. I've made this all different ways. I ended up making it a "frozen strawberry skinny girl marg" – same as above just added it to a blender with ice and strawberries and a half packet of splenda.

  13. You guys are the best! Thanks for looking up the points for a margarita. I'm sure the restaurants are a whole lot bigger than 4 oz!

    And thanks for sharing all your margarita recipes!!

  14. Hey Gina and all-I make a great margarita-like-drink…not exactly a margarita but it is low calorie and delicious! It is also not too strong, just the perfect amount of liquor.. it is 1 oz teguila, 1oz lemonade crystal light, 1 oz orange juice, a splash of peach liquor and a squeeze of lime! Shake well with ice in a shaker or just serve over ice!

  15. Yes, according to the Weight Watchers books, a 4oz Margarita is 5 points. However, a typical restaurant Margarita is much larger than 4oz.
