Low-Cal Margarita Recipe in a Mason Jar.
I was having a little Cinco de Mayo dilemma …
Because when I think of Cinco de Mayo, I think Margarita. In all its lemon-limey and tequila deliciousness. On the rocks. With salt.
Problem is, the calories don’t exactly fit neatly into my new “wear pants with a zipper” diet plan …
… and can I just tell you that two days of 80+ degree weather here in Chicago has really reinvigorated that “wear pants with a zipper” diet plan. Which I probably need to amend to “wear shorts with a zipper” diet plan …
So when I came across this 115 calorie low-cal Margarita recipe, I just couldn’t resist making some for me …
… and sharing the recipe with you, of course!

I packet sugar free lemonade (like this Crystal Light product here …)
6 oz. diet lemon-lime soda
1 shot tequila
1 ounce lime juice
Just mix it all together and pour over ice.
You can even mix up a batch or two and put them in mason jars on ice. Just shake it up before drinking.
And the pink ones are pink because I used the sugar-free pink lemonade mix.

Looks delish and I love all those jars pre-made! How convenient! How big exactly is that “packet of lemonade”?
Oh my…salad was to healthy…cheesecake wasn’t good for my diet…but this-perfect. Cheers
I too am unfamiliar with a packet of sugar free lemonade mix. Please tell me about these. Because I want to enjoy one of these yummys.
Yum! Now this is a project I can get into! 🙂
Great idea…thanks for sharing it. I used some 7up zero this past weekend to make some sangria…it was fabulous. I think I’ll get some more for some margarita madness. 🙂
Have a great weekend, Linda.

Thank you so much, that recipe looks great!
MMMMMM….Thanks Linda, I may have to rethink that pitcher of Margaritas I’m making for our annual Cinco de Mayo Fiesta!!
OK now …..premade, in a jar, shake to mix, in the ice, outside for the evening around a fire with friends, different flavors of margaritas, GENIUS. Skinny or not.

Yum! It’s practically healthier to drink this than not to, right?
I’m definitely “pinning” this!

Boy could I Have used of those last week, even earlier this week. They sound so good. Gonna have to make some of those. I drink lots of sun tea in summer, helps me stay somewhat thinner. But have to use bathroom an awful lot. Watch out everybody get out of my way or you’ll get mowed down, said to cat/dog.
So glad for you to have some lovely days. Having kids out in front playing is one great thing about living in neighborhood. I miss those sounds. Makes a person feel as tho all is well in your world. Are your legs all white? What color did you use on your toes?
Gotta go, chickens are up very early wanting out of pen. Happy days
Yes, my legs are a bit scary right now! I need to get out in the sun. And soon! And LOL about the poor cat and dog! Oh, the toes are blue …
Hope you have a fabulous day, my friend! 🙂 Linda
