It’s the first day of spring and I am SO excited about it! It’s no secret that I don’t love cold weather and I am looking forward to sitting on the porch sipping frozen cocktails and watching the world go by. Not that it ever happens that way. You know, life? But I love the idea of relaxing with a cool cocktail – and this skinny watermelon margarita certainly hits the spot.
Losing weight always sounds like a great idea but it almost never sounds like fun. After all, you generally have to give up all the good things – at least that’s what we assume. With skinny cocktails you really don’t have to give up much of anything. The calories are kept low with sugar free syrups and clear alcohols like vodka, rum, gin, and tequila have 0 carbs.
You do need to watch how often you drink though. One day a week or less is fine but alcohol will slow down your weight loss even if it isn’t knocking you out of ketosis.
Skinny Watermelon Margarita Recipe Notes
- To make a pitcher of these click on the serving size and move the cursor to increase the number of servings. The ingredients will increase as well.
- If you’d like more watermelon flavor you can float and extra tablespoon of watermelon syrup on the top of the drink.
- For parties make these in Mason jars and seal with the screw on tops. To make them go further add sugar free Sprite instead of ice. Put the drinks in a tub of ice to chill thoroughly.
- Garnishing with a wedge of chilled watermelon won’t add too many carbs and it looks pretty.
