Happy National Margarita Day!
I love me a margarita. It's my favorite cocktail.
This is supposed to be the original 'Skinnygirl Margarita' recipe that Bethenny Frankel from The Real Housewives of New York City boasts.

I feel I should warn you that this drink is really more of a shot and if you're not prepared will knock your socks off! It doesn't exactly taste like the typical margarita that you would get from your local watering hole... but that's because it's 200 calories (as compared to 740 in your typical margarita.) It also doesn't have that familiar glowing neon margarita mix in it or all the sugars and preservatives that go along with it.
My mom however, much preferred this with a light margarita mix instead of the straight lime juice. I've also heard that adding in some lime flavored crystal light helps to 'sweeten' this particular cocktail mix.
