Tip #2: Guilt-FREE Margarita's
I typically get my best ideas from clients! The Lambert/ Shelton wedding taught me about Diet Sprite (Sprite Zero – same thing) and Crystal Light. We were told to have plenty of Diet Sprite at all the bars! Who knew… so many great drinks were possible! I guess this is why everyone in Hollywood and Nashville are so skinny.
I created the recipe below for my mother (MeMe). It is 4 weight watcher points or 97 calories –half the points and calories of regular margaritas!!! They are so yummy and guilt free!
1 ½ oz Tequila
2 Key Limes
Crystal Light Lemonade (Individual packets)
Fill rock glass with ice and add tequila. Top with Diet Sprite, freshly squeezed lime juice, and lemonade crystal light powder to taste. Optional – rim glass with salt and garnish with lime.
Replace vodka for rum and add muddled mint at the beginning.
Till next time!
