Spritzers generally mean fewer calories, which is important because summer is right around the corner. However, with Cinco De Mayo tomorrow, how can you not have a margarita? I think it’s against the law! I have found a few margarita spritzer recipes that you can wow your guest’s and your taste buds without ruining your week worth of dieting. Besides, a spritzer is refreshing and fun to have a few bubbles in your drink that you may have not thought would be a fabulous idea to include in a margarita.
1 1/2 ounce tequila
1 ounce fresh lime juice
1 ounce triple sec or orange juice
4 ice cubes
Chilled seltzer or club soda
1 lime slice for garnish
In a tall glass combine the tequila, the lime juice, the triple sec, and ice cubes. Fill the glass with the seltzer and stir the drink.
Garnish it with the lime slice.
