100 Calorie Strawberry Watermelon Margarita Recipe


Love Margaritas? Hate the calories? Need to justify more Margaritas? No problem!

Here is your 100 Calorie Strawberry Watermelon Margarita Recipe

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!

Simple Recipe for the 100 Calorie Strawberry Watermelon Margarita

  • 1oz of Silver Tequila
  • 12oz of Strawberry Watermelon mix
  • Add ice
  • Stir & serve

You're Welcome.

Hi! I tried this with Plantation 3-Star rum instead of tequila (I didn’t have any white tequila and anejo seemed to have too strong of a flavor). With the 3-Star, it’s very good…perhaps I used between 1.5 to 2 oz of rum to 8 oz of the Crystal Light. It was an excellent drink for hot days. Costco sells a generic French vodka that tastes amazingly like Grey Goose…it would be good with this. Now, of course, I want to find fresh watermelon juice. Adding an ounce of it to this would really improve the drink…I think. Ah, the sacrifices I go through for science. ;-)

There is no evidence artificial sweeteners haste or cause Alzheimer’s or dementia. Check Alzheimer’s association’s myths section

Unfortunately the artificial chemical sweetener in Crystal Light hastens Alzheimer’s and dementia, along with many other neurological issues. I’ll take the occasional high calorie margarita any day!! Ha haaaaaa

Doesn't Fit? No Worries! We offer a 90 Day Return Policy.

About Ladies T-Shirt Fit:
Like all of our ladies t-shirts, they are a true ladies cut, meaning they are smaller than a men's shirt of the same size. Also, our ladies t-shirts are more of a regular fit and not a slim fit, unless specifically and clearly stated.

Example: If you normally wear a ladies Large t-shirt, then order your Island Jay ladies t-shirt in a ladies Large. If you wear men's sizes, order a size up. Therefore, if you wear a men's Large t-shirt, order our ladies t-shirt in a size X-Large.

FYI : We use the term "Ladies" to refer to female sizing and not a specific size range or fit style. For us, "Ladies" and "Women's" are the same sizing. Please use the size chart below to make sure your Island Jay tee will fit you. If not, no worries, we will gladly exchange your item within 90 days of purchase.

Hoodies: Our hoodies are unisex sized/Men's sized unless otherwise clearly noted in the title and description of the product details. They are a bit baggy. If you normally wear a Men's XL T-Shirt, an XL Hoodie will be baggy.

Hats: Our hats are adjustable with a strap on the back and fit most head sizes up to XL. Our hats are not fitted.

What if it does not fit?No problem. We welcome returns and exchanges within 90 days of purchase. We will even cover return shipping back to you. Your 100% satisfaction is our goal. As mentioned above, if you are in between sizes, we suggest going up a size. This applies for both ladies and men's.
