Known to be the most common tequila-based cocktail served in the United States, the margarita is a cocktail that typically consists of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice. A margarita on the rocks can pack anywhere from 450 to 800 calories, but Sparkling Ice makes it easy to make great-tasting margarita with only a fraction of the calories. That way you have more room to indulge in more cocktails or eat more food. The choice is yours…LOL!
On this fun day I’m sharing some great recipes that will take your margarita drinks to the next level and the hit of the party. My favorite is the Spicy Sparkling Margarita! Yummmmmmmm 😛
