Finally, A ‘Lite’ Margarita Mix That Doesn’t Taste Terrible, Scales Review
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.
