With summer rearing the corner and the pools open up for lounging, Margaritas make their usual re-appearance with full force. There really aren't too many beverages that are as refreshing and diverse as a Margarita. All different types of mixes, Tequila, sweeteners, and "secret ingredients" make the possibility of a Margarita endless. With these sugary treats does come one burden though.... calories. With the "average" Margarita weighing in at a hefty 500+ calories per 12oz serving, some people are straying from their favorite drink and looking for other, "low-cal" solutions, but what if you really like Margaritas? The solution has come in various "low-calorie" Margaritas that have exploded into the beverage scene and continue to post high sales, light, refreshing, and most importantly: tasty, here are a few of the low-cal titans you should look for this summer:
Skinny Girl Margarita- At only 100 calories per (4oz serving), Skinny Girl is lightly sweetened with agave nectar and made with premium Blue Agave Tequila that makes for a delightful, easy-drinking Margarita.
Jose Cuervo Light Margarita- From the world's No.1 selling Tequila and an already well established name in "Pre-mixed" cocktail solutions comes their low-cal solution. Packed with the same great taste as their authentic Pre-mixed Margarita but at only 100 calories, Cuervo continues their legacy as the leader in Tequila.
Margaritaville Skinny- From the king of Pina-Coladas and "gettin caught in the rain" comes this 95 calorie (per 4oz serving), 100% natural pre-mixed concoction. Sweetened with natural agave nectar, this is a great addition to the Margaritaville portfolio.
