Getting Skinny in Margaritaville #livingpuravida #ad

Hi, my name is Amanda, and I am a Parrot Head.  If you don’t know what that means, please scan below to the most awesome Skinny Margarita recipe!

For those of you who know what a Parrot Head is, you also know that there is no purer life than wasting away in margaritaville.  However, if you want to look good in a swim suit while there, you really should look into your island drinks.  A regular, on the rocks, margarita can have 150-200 calories!  But never fear, there is a better option.

The Pura Vida Skinny (or Flaco) Rita uses fresh juice and agave nectar which cuts down on the calorie count!  For more information about Pura Vida check out my original review post (which includes a Bloody Maria recipe).

Skinny Margarita


  • 2 oz. Pura Vida tequila
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 oz. agave nectar


  1. Combine tequila, juices and nectar in a shaker with ice and shake to chill.

This skinny margarita would go great with a lighter fare Mexican dish for dinner.  Sometimes Mexican meals can be heavy and full of calories.  My Mexican Stuffed Peppers.

This combo will have you feeling like you are on vacation in no time!  Enjoy responsibly.

  1. I love Mexican food! I had no idea there were so many calories in one margarita! Sounds like your version would be much better! =)

  2. That margarita sounds really good :-)

  3. Oooh this sounds good! I haven’t had a drink in…. I don’t even KNOW how long!

  4. I don’t drink, but it sure LOOKS appealing! I’d imagine those juices paired without the addition would be great too, so if you’re a person who enjoys tequila I’m sure that addition would be amazing.
    Also, I must try your Mexican Stuffed Peppers. YUM
