Updated July 19, 2017

A Skinnygirl margarita is the ideal option for those who want to enjoy a cocktail or two, but do not care to take in the hundreds upon hundreds of calories that are often found in margaritas served at restaurants and bars. Created by natural foods chef, author and reality star Bethenny Frankel, the Skinnygirl margarita eliminates sugary, syrupy margarita mixes in favour of natural lime juice. Each serving only contains around 100 calories, so there is no need to feel guilty while partaking with your friends.
