Besides this citrus marg, some of my favorite low calorie alcoholic drinks are Basil Cucumber Gin Coolers, Skinny Girl Margarita and even this boozy Watermelon Lime Granita.

To make a simple lime salt for the rim of the glass, grate a little lime zest and combine it with a coarse salt. Then use a lime wedge to wet the rim of the glass, then dip it in the salt. This is completely optional!

  1. Oh my god, this is so so yummy! Gina, you have the best recipes and I’m so happy that I came upon your site! I made this drink Sunday night as we were having your chicken enchiladas (which were wonderful!)….and I can’t wait to bring everything with me and make them this weekend and share them with my girlfriends! 130 calories, excellent! I added a drop of Stevia to my drink just to make it a little sweeter……was perfect, again, thanks..

  2. I made these for a dinner party tonight and they were a huge hit! I just prepared a pitcher with all of the ingredients except the seltzer and then topped off each glass with some lemon la croix. Very refreshing and not as syrupy as a traditional margarita.

  3. Hi Gina can you make this with another fruit or all lime. I am not a huge fan of orange juice. Although I loved oranges lol. Thanks. 

  4. Just made this drink…all I can say is delicious! It's like a lightened up margarita. So, so good. You always have great recipes. Thanks!

  5. Sorry, it's Bar on Buena!

    Gina, I do have a question. Can you recommend a dry red wine that is low in WW points. Red wine is typically 5 points, but if there is a red wine that you can recommend that is lower than 5 points, I would be very grateful in Chicago!

      My best tip is to turn your wine into a spritzer if you plan on having more than one glass.

  6. The drink is worth the 5 points. The manager, Chris Chatman, of Bar on Buean in Chicago found the recipe for me when looking it up on his cell phone when I asked for a low cal coctail. I am going to carry this receipe/or have it handy in my e-mail for providing to bartenders when I go out.

  7. wow, I love a good drink, but I don't think I can fathom using 5 points for one drink!! that's a whole meal!

  8. My boyfriend and I started sipping on these while outside doing yardwork! So delicious and very refreshing! We have a new favorite summer drink! The fresh squeezed juices were the BEST! Thanks!

  9. This was the perfect addition to my Cinco de Mayo meal. I LOVE the fresh ingredients in this drink and the fizziness of the seltzer. I will definitely make again!

  10. I made this tonight with your cilantro lime shrimp dish for dinner. Delicious!!!
    Do you have a recipe for this drink if making for a crowd..a pitcher full?

  11. I made this today and it was good! Had everything on hand except the seltzer, so I used diet tonic. I see Melanie noted above that diet Sprite works best, so next time I will try that. Thanks for another great recipe. Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

  12. The biggest problem with this? It goes down WAY too easy. Thanks for another winner, and adding more cocktail recipes to the site!

  13. This was wonderful. Had a bunch of guys over to our house today and everyone loved it! I added a touch of agave for added sweetness.
