"Light" Margaritas!

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I tried this one tonight, and though I am no margarita "connoisseur" (I used to drink mostly frozen margaritas), these were so tasty!!!! I can have some nice, summer-like mixed drinks, and not feel guilty! I may try some other flavor combinations with different diet sodas and flavors of Crystal Lite! :D

 

Margaritas

 

1 can diet sprite

2 tsp Crystal Light lemonade mix

1/2c. lime juice

1.5 oz tequila

Ice (I used about 14-16 cubes)

 

Blend until smooth.

 

The whole recipe is 2 points, and it probably made 2 very large margaritas, or 3 medium drinks.

 

I also ran this through WW Online's Recipe Builder to confirm the points.

 

Enjoy!

Christine

:D :D :D

I made this recipe tonight for me and a friend after a long hot day outside with the kids, they were yummy and only 2 points for 2 big glasses...

Thanks for the recipe.

There used to be a recipe on here for Mockaritas from Charski which were, I think, one point each and were absolutely out of this world in taste!! Non-alcoholic, of course, but truly tasty!! I'll have to take a look tonight in my recipes and see if I can find it and post for those who might be interested.

0 POINTS!!! WOOHOOO!!!!

 

Hehe... I know I had thought that they were always one point too...

 

Finding out that they are 0 points is kinda like finding a $20 bill in an old jacket you forgot about...hehe.

 

LOL
