  • Not to be a buzz-kill here, but margaritas are about as fattening as libations come. Laden with sugar and empty alcohol calories, a restaurant margarita can pack as many as 500 calories into a single salt-rimmed glass. We know, we know—but they taste so good! To satisfy your margarita fix on Cinco de Mayo without busting your diet, whip up one of these Spry-approved margarita recipes, which have significantly fewer calories and sugar than the traditional stuff. Cucumber, mango, blackberry, traditional—we've got margs in all flavors and varieties, so pick your poison. Skinny Mango Margarita This creamy, sweet margarita is chock-full of blended mango chunks.
