It time for those Cinco de Mayo Parties and with beach season just around the corner, who wants to worry about having a margarita with all those calories? We know a lot of you have tried that housewives version of the low-cal margarita mix, but did you know that an average glass of the “Skinny Margarita” has about 24 grams of sugar?
Yikes—not very skinny. We found a new mix we really liked called Sinless Margarita Mix. It is non-alcoholic, all natural, sugar free and has ONLY 5 Calories per serving! They use real lime and lemon juice and balance it with the all natural sweetener Stevia. You do NOT need to add Triple Sec-- there is 11 grams of sugar in 1 ounce of Triple Sec, so that would ruin the calorie count. Just add 1 part of your favorite tequila to 2-3 parts of mix and shake well.
Since this is all natural, you must keep it refrigerated and the mix will last about 6 months, which we know we would never get to that point. A 1-liter bottle is $7.99, and is available in most states (nothing yet in NY, but you can call to ask them to have it in your favorite store) or you can order online. Salud!
