Want to add a festive beverage to your meal? A typical frozen margarita from a restaurant provides upwards of 600 calories and 120 grams of carbohydrates. To cut back on calories and carbs, try a margarita on the rocks made with tequila, zero-calorie sparkling water, and fresh-squeezed lime juice. This change eliminates nearly all carbohydrates and reduces calorie intake to less than 100.
