Stop and Smell the Margaritas
Even the busiest gadget gal needs to take a break and re-charge sometimes. Whether it's a night out with girl's or at the end of a really l-o-n-g day, sometimes a margarita is the perfect tonic.
But as every woman knows, margaritas have, like, a zillion calories (on average, 300-500 calories.) Who needs that? So we were happy to discover Refine Mixers which are all-natural and zero calories. While many mixers contain high fructose corn syrup or sugar, these mixers are made with Stevia - an all-natural and zero calorie herbal sweetener. And since it's an herbal sweetener, it has zero impact on blood glucose levels. The only calories you’re getting are from the alcohol (figure 100 for tequila in a regular-sized margarita. (If you serve a fish-bowl sized one, you're on your own!)
Refine makes our favorite mixers - Margarita, Mojito and Cosmopolitan - and we have diligently tried all three and can report that they taste great. Not as sweet as most commercial products, the margarita mix is a perfect blend of blend of lemon and lime, and you can add to taste. For example, we like to add a splash of OJ and a dash of Triple Sec. (Of course, then they're not calorie free.)
So stop and smell the margaritas guilt-free. Cheers!
