One of the issues with Margarita's is the mix, not the tequila. A full 12oz Margarita with a sugar sweet mix can easily turn that drink into a 500+ calorie beverage. If you have 2 or 3, you are likely over your calorie intake for the day, not that you are counting it at that point.
But the tequila is another story at only 70-80 calories per 1oz shot. Plus it has no carbs! BONUS!
So what is the solution to having a few good Margaritas and saving on the calories and carbs? Simple, get a no/low calorie mix like Crystal Light. My wife and I love the Strawberry Watermelon flavor, which for a full gallon pitcher is only 80 calories. It mixes well with a good silver tequila like 1800, Cazadores, or Patrón.
What the bottom line math on this mix of calories and margaritas?
A Margarita with 12oz of Crystal Lite Strawberry Watermelon mix plus 1oz of tequila is just under 100 calories and has no carbs. That's it!
