Super Skinny Margarita

A few months back I discovered Crystal Light's new Mocktails, the Margarita and Pomtini flavors.  They were good on their own, but on my quest for guilt free libations, I thought I would see how they stood up to cocktail hour.  I was pleasantly surprised. While not quite the same as the pure unadulterated Margarita that I prefer, these 'rita's definitely rival Skinny Girl.  Light, refreshing, not too sweet and a big calorie savings.  Margaritas from a typical mix are somewhere around 500 calories; Skinny Girl is 100 calories for a 4 ounce serving.  This one, made with Crystal Light, is just about 100 calories for a whopping 9-1/2  ounce margarita. I think I'll have two!

8 ounces Crystal Light Margarita, prepared according to package directions
1-1/2 ounces tequila
squeeze of fresh lime juice

Combine all ingredients in a shaker.  Shake well and pour into salt rimmed margarita glasses.
