Happy Margarita Day!

Today is National Margarita Day!
You might remember this painting that hangs on the wall at The Margarita Grill

We haven't had a margarita in months... we have decided that (for now) they are just not worth the calories. Whoa~ Stop the mariachi music!
That was before I found The Hungry Girl

Magical Low-Calorie Margarita
(115 calories, 2 Points)
3/4 cup Diet Sprite Zero
1.5 oz. tequila
1 individual sized packet Crystal Light lemonade
2 Tbs lime juice
Rim the glass by running a lime wedge along the edge of the glass and dip into a dish of salt. Shake all ingredients together. Pour over 1 cup of crushed ice. Garnish with lime slice.(chips not included)
Now that is a reason for a party .
Y'all enjoy!
Sandi

Thank goodness I have a few chips left over next to me, or I might have to faint on this one!

I like the painting! Now that is good marketing strategy :)
