4 Low Calorie Drinks for Cinco de Mayo

4 Low Calorie Tequila Drinks---stay skinny this cinco de mayo!

Mexican cuisine is wrongfully typecast as cheesy, greasy and fatty. Margaritas are labeled as high-calorie and high-sugar drinks. So, when Cinco de Mayo rolls around, the holiday becomes an excuse to gobble deep fried taquitos, greasy quesadillas and sweet frozen drinks. However, Cinco de Mayo does not have to be a bloat causing, fattening food fest. Mexican food also emphasizes freshness–fresh tomatoes, fresh lettuce, fresh lime, fresh flavors.

Stick to the salsa, instead of the queso. Stick to the salads and soft shells instead of the crunchy tacos. A side of beans is just as rewarding as an oily enchilada. And when it comes to margaritas, simple is always best. Traditionally, some margarita recipes may call for Triple Sec or Cointreau, however these are very high in calories and sugar. I recommend the silver tequila and the freshest ingredients.
