Top 10 Low Calorie Margarita Recipes
The calorie count of your favorite Margaritas could range anywhere between 90 to 500 calories, depending on what goes into it. The count can be more or less, also depending upon what other ingredients, in addition of tequila, you mix into it. On its own, tequila clocks 96 calories per fluid ounce but that can differ, depending on what brand you are using. However, since a Margarita comes mixed with much more than just tequila, it would make sense to create low-calorie options so that you can enjoy your drink guilt-free. So, here are 10 Margarita recipes that clock less than 300 calories.
