Low-Calorie Cocktail Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is coming up in about a week and for many of us...that means we will be enjoying some great tasting beverages to celebrate and/or attending some fun Cinco de Mayo parties. Usually we all complain about the calories we consumed the very next day but now we can enjoy our favorite drinks but with reduced calories. In today's world...these type of drinks are referred to as "Skinny Cocktails" or "Skinny Beverages".

But wait! Did you know that one regular Margarita is over 600 calories per serving? Using Cascade Ice, we can knock that down to just around 55. Below are a few festive drink recipes we recommend mixing up for Cinco de Mayo. Low-cal, but full of flavor!

Skinny Margarita Recipe

In a mixer, mix the juice of 2 lime wedges with 1 1Ž2 oz of Tequila. Add 8oz of Cascade Ice Margarita Mixer. Shake or stir and pour contents into your favorite margarita glass with a salted rim. Garnish with a lime wheel for a festive touch!

Skinny Daquiri Recipe

Not a fan of tequila? No problem! Try a delicious Skinny Daiquiri. To create this sweet treat, add 1 1Ž2 cups of ice and 1 1Ž2 cups frozen strawberries into your blender. Pour in 8oz Cascade Ice Zero-Calorie Wild Berry Sparking Water and your choice of rum. Blend until smooth. Pour into a chilled glass and garnish with fresh fruit.

Disclosure: You must be 21 years of age or older to consume alcohol. Please drink responsibly. Recipes and photos are courtesy of Cascade ICE.
