The MD 5-23 Margarita {Calorie Counting}

Well, today is my 2 year anniversary with my hubby, and we did what most couples do on their anniversary…

Get your mind out of the gutter.

We toasted and drank to our 2 years of marriage! We had a mini-getaway this weekend, so we wanted to celebrate without a ton of calories this evening.

And here is where Bonita’s mixes enter again.

To make the MD 5-23 Margarita (which, FYI is the Monica & Daniel 5/23/09 margarita…) you need:

Bonita’s Sweet ‘n Sour Mix (I love, love, love their mixes- LOVE!)

-Zero calorie lime soda

-Zero/low calorie strawberry mix (powered or liquid) OR pureed strawberries




Instructions: Fill a large pilsner/glass with ice.


Then pour 2-2.5  ounces each of strawberry mix, lime soda, tequila and then top with 4 ounces of Bonita’s Sweet n’ Sour Mix. Do it in that exact order for maximum results. You end up with a really pretty, romantic drink that goes from lighter to darker and is such a pretty shade of orange/red….like a romantic sunset:



And then you pair it with some lean beef tacos and chips and queso served on happy birthday plates:


So, from our home to yours, we toast to all of you! Cheers.


Oh and Pee Wee there in the corner says hello. See? It was dinner time for all of us. 🙂

Calorie count: About 120 calories/12 minutes of heavy duty exercise. Not too shabby, eh? Bottoms up.
