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 spice margarita 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!

* Serve two

1 ounce fresh lime juice

1 ounce fresh lemon juice

1 splash Cointreau [ or triple sec ]

1 splash water

+ Directions: Add ice to a martini shaker. Shake ingredients [ besides water ] over ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass over ice [ option: to rim with cinnamon before ]. Splash water. Garnish with an orange twist and add a pinch of cinnamon.

( Don’t get stuck drinking sugary cocktails – kindly micromanage your bartender when you’re out! )
