Red RosaRita

Without a doubt, the toughest part of the weight loss challenge is limiting cocktail time.  But I've come up with a few rules so I can rationalize keeping cocktails in my diet:
Include fruit (fruit juice acceptable, but not preferred).

All mixers must be calorie free.
Follow these rules and I can have a cocktail, or maybe two, with just a little less guilt.

Red Berry Rita was created in honor of upcoming Cinco De Mayo and of course
 the NJ Devils successful first playoff round.  Go Devils!

2 ripe strawberries, cut up
1 ounce Don Julio or Patron Tequila
1/2 ounce Contreau
2 ounces club soda or seltzer
honey or stevia to taste, optional
ice

Muddle strawberries in a glass.  Add remaining ingredients and fill with ice.  Garnish with orange wedge and strawberry.

Cheers!
