Marilyn Monroe Margarita

Designer cocktails are all the rage, but if you are watching your figure you might be hesitant about too much alcohol and sugary syrups.

Try our Marilyn Monroe Margarita – named for its tiny waste properties using wine rather than spirits and replacing sugar with xylitol!

Margarita recipe

100 ml Leopard’s Leap Chardonnay

25 ml Cinzano Bianco

10 ml lime juice

25 ml apple cinnamon syrup (see recipe below)

Crushed ice


Mix all the ingredients in a cocktail shaker.

Serve in a Margarita glass on crushed ice and decorate with three thin apple half-moons.


To make the Apple Cinnamon syrup

500 ml boiled water

1 Granny Smith apple, sliced

2 cinnamon sticks

100 ml xylitol

Boil water on the stove top and add apple slices and cinnamon sticks.

Continue to boil for 20 minutes or until the apple slices are soft.

Remove apple and cinnamon and keep aside.

Add xylitol to the water and cook for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat to cool.

Again add apples and cinnamon sticks to infuse syrup.
