There are zillions of recipes for margaritas. And though they all vary as far as taste and ingredients are concerned, most have one thing in common -- they're incredibly caloric! In fact, most contain between 250 - 500 calories. But margaritas are fun, and they taste great. They're also fantastic "virgin" style (without alcohol), in case you're not old enough to drink or just prefer not to. In any case, you'll LOVE HG's Magical Low-Calorie Margarita. It's yummy, refreshing and it'll fool everyone you know into thinking they're sipping a real, high-calorie version of the popular cocktail.
