Margaritas are probably my favorite alcoholic drink in the world but they are soooooo fattening. So when a friend told me about Crystal Lite Margarita mix, I thought, "Why Not?" Especially when my friend brought me one of the packets and said, "Here, try it--you might like it."
So, I did.
The only thing is that Crystal Lite says to add eight cups of water---waaaaayyyyyyy too much water. Then the drink will taste like LITEly flavored water. Don't follow the rules, just this one time. Listen to me, only add about four to five cups of water. Then add your shot of tequila and blend with ice.
Of course I have to salt the rim - because that's almost the best part - for me.
I guess I'm a bit like a horse, I love a salt lick - and I do...lick the rim to get every bit of that salty goodness.
I'm not saying it's as good as a regular sugary-sweet margarita but this is a good option if you, like me, are counting calories.
