There are zillions of recipes for margaritas. And though they all vary as far
as taste and ingredients are concerned, most have one thing in common --
they're incredibly caloric! In fact, most contain between 250 - 500
calories. But margaritas are fun, and they taste great. They're also
fantastic "virgin" style (without alcohol), in case you're not old enough to
drink or just prefer not to. In any case, you'll LOVE HG's Magical Low-
Margarita. It's yummy, refreshing and it'll fool everyone you know into
thinking they're sipping a real, high-calorie version of the popular cocktail.
