skinny margaritas on national drink wine day

apparently today is national drink wine day, so i decided to celebrate with margaritas. why? because wine is not a rare thing in the home scratch household. but home scratch margaritas come around only on occasion. and what better occasion than today?

i have a real fear of high fructose corn syurp, so to make a home scratch margarita, think “skinny.” i avoid pre-made mixes like they are little plagues waiting to happen. (which is funny for me to type because husband and i often joke about us being able to out run the zombies when the zobmie apocolypse happens all because we do not consume anything with HFCS. it has been banished from our home). i think the notion of a skinny cocktail is brilliant, but like my fear of HFCS, i have a real fear of fake sugar. not only does it alledgidly cause cancer, it tastes gross. i want my sweets to make my mouth water, not get a splash of sweetness on my tounge and stop, leaving the rest of my mouth waiting for its turn for the splash of sweet.

to make a “skinny” margarita home scratch style, i use 100% agave tequilla, organic agave nectar, fresh lime juice and a splash of natural orange liquor. since i am feeling a little more festive, and i just had a rio red grapefruit that was so juicy and wonderful, i decided to add another margarita option to this evenings menu. so while out gathering the margarita necessities, i grabbed grapefruit juice.
