Skinny Orange Margaritas

Lovely Lauryn Evarts gifted me her amazing The Skinny Confidential Fitness and Lifestyle Guide and I couldn't wait to try out her skinny cocktails. Warm days in February definitely call for an orange skinny margarita- I mean it can't get any better than this. This margarita tasted so good, mainly because I used fresh ingredients- it really does make a difference. The flavors were bold and it was absolutely refreshing. Go on and grab your cocktail shaker, and trust me this recipe will surely become your next go-to margie-poo.

2 1/2 oz/70 ml 100% agave tequila
3 lemons
Juice of 3 oranges (original recipe calls for juice of 1 blood orange)
1 tablespoon raw organic honey (or 1/2 packet Stevia)
2 handfuls of ice
2 sprigs of rosemary, for garnish

Pour all of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker. Shake and shake! Rim your glass with a lemon wedge and put salt on the rim. Add ice to your glass, and pour the margarita over the ice in the glass. Garnish with the rosemary sprigs. Enjoy!
