Skinny Red, White And Blue Margarita

I created this Sweet ‘N Low recipe for a Skinny Red, White And Blue Margarita as a sponsored post for the Socialstars #donthesitaste campaign. The recipe and opinions are my own.

The 4th of July is less than two weeks away, and I am excited to share a brand new recipe featuring a colorful spin on my favorite frozen concoction. One that would make Jimmy Buffet proud. I believe this Skinny Red, White and Blue Margarita will be a hit at our 4th of July celebration — and yours too! 

Skinny Red White and Blue Margarita
For my family, the 4th of July is celebrated at the beach. And the sound of the blender announces that it is 5 o’clock… somewhere. Since everyone loves their margaritas I was excited to come up with a patriotic spin on our drink of choice. 

Although it takes a little more time to create each layer, it really isn’t hard to make. Plus it would be very easy to double the recipe for a large group. Just blend, freeze, layer and serve. 

Skinny 4th of July Margarita
Did I mention, this is a SKINNY margarita. That’s right, this homemade margarita skips the extra calories by using zero-calorie Sweet ‘N Low to sweeten the tang. And it is yum, yum, yummy! 

As an added bonus, each skinny margarita contains a cup of fruit! 

Ingredients

This recipe makes 4 full mason jars or six tall, skinny glasses.

Strawberry Layer

  • 2 1/2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • Juice from 2 limes (approx 1/4 cup)
  • 2 oz of tequila
  • 10 packs of Sweet N Low
  • 1 cup of ice

Lime Layer

  • Juice from 4 limes (approx 1/2 cup)
  • 2 oz of tequila
  • 10 packs of Sweet N Low
  • 2 1/2 cup of ice

Blueberry Layer

  • 1 cup of frozen blueberries
  • Juice from 2 limes (approx 1/4 cup)
  • 2 oz of tequila
  • 10 packs of Sweet N Low
  • 1 cup of ice

Tip – this recipe would be much easier to make with a juicer. Sigh. I don’t have one so juicing the limes took forever! Next time I will buy a juicer! 

For each of the margarita layers add the fruit, limes, tequila, ice and Sweet ‘N Low to the blender and pulse until smooth. (If mixture is too thin, add ice.) Pour into a container, and store each layer in the freezer while you blend the next layer.

Repeat for all three margarita layers.

To rim glasses with salt run a lime wedge around the rim of your glass, and then dip glass into a plate of salt.

Allow all layers to sit in the freezer for 15-30 minutes. Then use a spoon to scoop margarita into glasses one layer at a time. Use small scoops, if you scoop too much at a time the next layer will disrupt the previous layer.

Layer your strawberry, lime and blueberry layers.

Serve with a lime and a festive straw and enjoy.

For about 5-10 minutes (less if you are outside) the layers sit nicely on top of each other providing a pretty red, white and blue design. Eventually the blueberry layer starts to bleed. Since the strawberry layer never seemed to bleed into the lime, next time I will layer blue, white and red. I think the blueberry bits are just to heavy and sink.

Even once the layers start to bleed, this skinny margarita is delicious. So either way everyone will enjoy. Just ask my neighbors who got to taste test the leftovers.
