Have your drink and figure too! Low Calorie Margaritas

Cheers to Skinnymom Margarita! Have your drink and figure too thanks to The Organized Cook! Did you know that the average margarita can pack up to 550 calories per drink.  No wonder margaritas from Skinnygirl Cocktails are so popular- with only 220 calories in an 8oz. margarita.

I personally love Skinnygirl, especially the White Peach Margarita.  But, nothing beats homemade for me; and paying up to $24.99 a bottle makes me love homemade even more.  I like to know exactly what’s in my drink- fresh lemon, lime and a bit of agave nectar mixed with a fine tequila is the best-tasting and most refreshing margarita.  Here’s The Organized Cook’s homemade low-calorie margarita, or “Skinnymom” Margarita at only 132 calories for an 8oz. margarita (insert big smile here).

Sugar Baby

Drinks made with prepared margarita mix contain a ton of sugar, and I can feel the effects on my endocrine system when I drink them- which is why I don’t anymore.  Agave nectar, especially pure raw organic agave nectar is a type of sugar that is much easier broken down by the body.  I use agave nectar in my homemade lemonade, coffee and sometimes tea.


The answer for me is “no salt”.  Who needs the extra sodium?
