skinny margarita | indulge

Last night, a friend and I went out for drinks. As girls sometimes do, we were counting calories, so we ordered skinny margaritas (I’m rolling my eyes at myself). I realized (in the middle of judging myself for trying to squeeze in a restaurant margarita as part of my allotted calories) I could easily make a skinny margarita at home but without the fillers or pre-made mixers, so that’s what I did.
