Here’s a clean, great-tasting drink that doesn’t pack on the calories.
What you’ll need:
1-2 shots of tequila (by now you know our preference 😉)
Frozen berries-about a quarter cup depending on glass size and preference.
Simple syrup (optional)
Place the mixed frozen berries on the bottom of your glass. Add the tequila, ice, and lime seltzer. Top the glass off with a lime! Berries can be sweetened or add simple syrup to the drink based on your individual sweetness.
Avoiding sugar altogether? Cut the berries. The lime seltzer adds a nice taste and cuts the strength of the tequila flavor.
Looking for a low-calorie cocktail? This past weekend we tried Be Mixed mixers. Be Mixed mixers have no sugar and no calories. Yep, you read that right – zero! So, if you add a shot of 80 proof vodka, you’re talking a total of 97 calories per drink (or 194 calories if you sneak in another ;).
Be Mixed offers three flavors; Ginger Lime, Cucumber Mint, and Margarita. We at Nearly All Things especially liked the Margarita flavor mixer with a shot or two of tequila, but the rest of our group was split over the Ginger Lime and Cucumber Mint. So, our recommendation – try the sample pack and decide on your own 🙂
