Cut the Calories with this Refreshing Tequila Drink

Image of tequila drinks

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.
  • Lime seltzer
  • Lime
  • 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.


Love to hear from you!

Make Fun Cocktails without the Guilt


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 🙂
