Healthy Happy Hour: Cinna-rita, Anyone?

By Amanda Roland

Welcome to Healthy Happy Hour! Here, we take classic cocktail recipes and add a healthy twist! Try this interesting twist on a margarita that we like to call the “Cinna-rita!”


Cinnamon is packed with antioxidants, lowers blood sugar, helps to fight infections and is an anti-inflammatory.


  • 2 oz tequila
  • 1 oz lime juice
  • 1 oz Cointreau


Depending on how much cinnamon you want in your life, there are two ways to make this drink. You can either substitute the regular tequila with cinnamon tequila and garnish with cinnamon, or just garnish a classic margarita with cinnamon. Either way, the cinnamon on top will give it that healthy kick that you wouldn’t get from a margarita otherwise! Enjoy your newest favorite drink, the “Cinna-rita!”
