Cheers to Guilt-Free Margaritas
As editors, it takes a lot to impress us. We see the good and the bad, the phenomenal and the "what were they thinking?" Of course, every once in a while, lightening strikes when a quirky product is introduced to our staff that fills a void we didn't even know existed. And this news spread like wildfire: Guilt-free margaritas. To-go.
Just in time for Memorial Dayand a rash of official summer kick-off partiesthe cocktail-loving makers of Zilch Mixers (they're based in Texas, of course) have launched little ready-made-drink packets that are poised to become one of our summer staples. They're made of zero-calorie, zero-carb, zero-sodium, and zero-sugar powders that mimic the flavors of bar-ordered margaritas when mixed with a glass of tequila and water. Serious party people (and hostesses) can get their fix with gallon servings of pre-blended mixers.
We plan on throwing a few in our bag before hitting the cook-out/barbeque/pool party circuit this weekend. What could be more sensible than arriving at any fete with your own easy, bikini-approved drink mix?
