I love margaritas, but I have a hard time with the fact that they are packed with sugar.  So much so that your average margarita is 350-500 calories.  Get a big enough one and it's the equivalent of eating a stack of candy bars.   Sometimes when I'm out shopping I'll try a new low calorie option to see how it goes.   Up until now, they've all tasted pretty terrible.  This time I tried the more expensive mix called "Scales."

It's actually pretty good.  It was about $5 and I found it at Walmart.  I mixed it with Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila and we ended up going through the whole bottle of mix in one night.  It made about 4 margaritas.  My wife even liked it, and she couldn't even stomach the last couple brands we tried.

So if you're looking for a lighter margarita mix so you can enjoy more of them, try Scales.  It's not as good as an original margarita, but it's better than the rest.
