A Lower-Calorie Margarita Punch for Your Next Girl’s Night

Think you have to buy over-priced drink mix to make a lower-calorie cocktail? Think again. You can substitute a few ingredients on your own to get the same "skinny" result. This punch tastes just like a margarita, but uses agave nectar and juiced citrus to get that balance of sweet and tart instead of artificial ingredients, so you get all the flavor without the guilt. Whip up a batch for your next girl’s night!

Lower Calorie Skinny Margarita Punch

Skinny Margarita Punch

  • 1 liter silver tequila, chilled
  • 1 c freshly squeezed lime juice, cold
  • ½ c freshly squeezed orange juice, cold
  • ½ c agave nectar
  • 4 c sparkling water or seltzer, chilled, to top off
  • lime wheels, to garnish

Combine ingredients in a punch bowl and gently stir. Serve with lime wedges over ice.

For ice mold

To make a decorative ice mold, fill a clean bundt pan 1/4th the way with water, and top with lime wheels, freeze, then fill another 1/4th with water and limes, and freeze again. Repeat until completed.

#fbf to 1994 (ish) with my buds, @richardwiese and @wendirogerstv Bought that sport coat on sale for about 20 bucks because that’s all I had in the bank. Was 10% wool and 90% “other.” Got caught in the rain with it and smelled like wet dog ass all night.

Nine years ago, I made a vow to live my life based on three guiding principles: Love, Awe and Gratitude. Today, instead of feeling sad, angry or anxious about The Chew’s cancellation, I will look through the lens of Gratitude and thank: My cohosts, @chefsymon and @carlaphall, for being two of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. The crew and staff of The Chew for being so dedicated, hardworking and collaborative. Our viewers for allowing us into your homes each day to share a laugh and a recipe — and a cocktail. It’s been a fun run and I am so freakin’ lucky to have been a part of it. Much love, CK ❤️
