Skinny Girls’ Margarita Recipe a la Real Housewives of New York

Summer's coming - time to break out the blender! I'm not a fan of the Real Housewives series (I made it through high school once... don't need to relive the drama again), but Bethenny has brought back the 'real' marg and now we can save ourselves from ingesting corn syrup, yellow dye and the hundreds of calories that come in the bottled mixes - Ole to you, girlfriend!
You can watch her prepare the recipe on Youtube (image from

Very nice on a hot day.

The Skinny Girls' Margarita

Blender drink (can be served over ice too)

What you’ll need:
* Half a blender full of slushy ice
* Clear Tequila (less chance of a hang over, according to Bethenny)
* (count 1, 2, 3, 4 while you pour, no need for measuring)
* A splash of fresh lime juice (I usually add the juice of one lime per drink)
* Bethenny cheats sometimes by using a splash of lemonade to extend the lime juice
* Micro plain the rind of one lime into the mix
* A splash of Cointreau, Grand Marnier or Triple Sec (2 count per drink)

Combine all ingredients and blend and/or pour over a glass of ice.

Garnish with a lime wedge and salt/sugar combination if you’d like.

Makes one serving
