Let’s Talk Cocktails – Taco Tuesday Edition

I love a margarita as much as the next person but a regular margarita can be 200-300 calories and more than 30 carbs per drink. These are empty calories with no nutritional value and the sugar would probably give you a stomachache!

So what are the options? There’s the famous Skinny Girl margarita, which started by just adding a lot of lime juice to some tequila. This may not be for everyone. Looking at some “light” margarita mixes, most still have at least 200 calories and a high amount of sugar. I basically gave up thinking about margaritas by the pool.

That is until I found the light margarita mix by Master of Mixes. This is a very tasty mix and is actually light! It has 10 calories (yes, 10!) for a 4 ounce pour and only 2 carbs with no added sugars. When I mix mine with an ounce of Casamigos tequila, the entire drink comes in under 80 calories! This is also a great mix for those watching carbs, including people with diabetes.

While you shouldn’t over-indulge, this is a great mix to have a tasty cocktail or two. So enjoy your (healthy) tacos with a great margarita this Taco Tuesday without any extra sugar and without all those empty calories!
