Happy Cinco de Mayo!!!!
Margaritas are just about my favorite alcoholic drink.
When I was young, I and all my friends would head out on Friday after work
and drink many of them.
But that was then and this is now.
I rarely have an alcoholic beverage.
Now that I am older...I feel drunk most of the time anyway...I don't need a drink to
make me stumble around and lose my inhibitions.
Age and life experience will do that to you.
So I prefer not to drink.
But I do miss margaritas.
Well, no more!

Yesterday, some customers at the store were talking about how they were going
to celebrate Cinco de Mayo by drinking Crystal Light Margaritas.
I did a Scooby Do double take
and said, "Huuuuuiiihhh?"
"What is this I inquired?"
They all chimed in....
"Crystal Light Margarita mix. Just like regular Crystal Light but it tastes like margaritas."
I swore I was headed to the store to purchase immediately after work.
And I did.
I also bought a special margarita glass to drink it in from the store.
(Special glasses make me very happy.)
I couldn't help but try it as soon as I got home.
Let me tell you....this stuff is the best.
I did not put any tequila in it.
I just mixed a little in my glass with water and added ice.
5 calories per glass.
It's sweet and sour and soooo good.
I'm sure it would be perfect with tequila in it but I don't care about getting drunk.
Actually, I'd prefer, not.
Have you tried this stuff?
I've tried the Skinny Girl Margarita created by Bethenny Frankel who got paid like
30 million for her idea and it was just terrible. I will never drink it again.
Anyway, today I'll be drinking Margaritas all day without an ounce of guilt
Happy Fifth of May!!!
