Pumpkin Spice Margaritas

Fitness blogger and weight loss blogger from Southern California

It’s ironic how winter-time is approaching but the sun is shining brighter than ever [ ahhh, California- you're mixed up! ]. Although I would have appreciated crisp cool air & hot chocolate weather today, I embraced the sun and made this light pumpkin cocktail [ confession: I am writing this post buzzed ].

Quick Skinny Tip: most mixed cocktails are filled with sugar & calories [ but so easy to modify! ]. Instead of having the local bartender use margarita mix, substitute lemon & lime juice with a splash of water. The morning hangover will be so much kinder too!

    Hi Lauryn!

    (Reg ‘Lauren’ over here :) )

    I seriously can not wait to try this recipe! I am obsessed with skinny margs. I usually make a standard ‘on the rocks’ one with: Clear tequila, teeeny bit all-natural triple sec, juice from 2-3 lime wedges, tiny splash OJ (I use Trop50, 1/2 calories), and a teeeeeeeny pinch of stevia.

    I also really, really like frozen strawberry ones: clear tequila, tiny splash triple sec, fresh lime juice, stevia, frozen strawberries, ice & blended.

    Can’t wait to try your recipe! Thanks! (And love your blog, btw)
