"Don't Open That Bag!!!".....because I'll eat the whole thing.

Tostitos Chips with Hint of Lime (especially the highly flavored ones at the bottom of the bag - I'll eat em all just to get to those!), Tostitos Medium Salsa... not too highbrow, but a cheap and delicious snack.

Skinny Girl Margarita

Bethenny Frankel's original recipe (love her or hate her) calls for clear premium tequila. She has used patron silver herself in demos, but I guess any clear premium tequila is called for.

For example, I enjoy Patron Silver. It has a lighter, smoother flavor than other tequilas. The original Skinny Girl margarita that this drink is based off of is made with patron silver. Perhaps I'm not articulating this correctly, as I am not a tequila connoisseur, but I do prefer a lighter tequila flavor. This drink seems to offer that without being too watered down and is relatively inexpensive. I'm not saying this means everyone will enjoy it. It suits my preferences and apparently the preferences of a number of others. I also like that I don't have to worry about properly measuring the calories myself - someone else did it for me. I'm not saying I'm always obsessed with caloric intake and proper measurements when I drink cocktails, and I realize they are not a diet food, but that is one rather unique appeal of these products. Can it be improved upon tastewise? I'm sure, but some posters seem to be wondering why these drinks are being sold at all. I enjoy it for what it is. *Shrugs*

Some of us don't like a strong tequila taste. I know I don't, especially if it's not great tequila. I really enjoyed the taste of this product and it offered a nice buzz, but obviously opinions may differ. I don't have agave syrup, triple sec, etc. and didn't feel like lugging all of those bottles on a train trip during which we had this drink. It's relatively inexpensive and pre-measured to be low calorie, which is important to some of us. Don't understand where all of the snobbery is coming from.

I tried it and thought it was quite good for a bottled mix. It's not very sweet, but I thought the light and tart lime flavor was refreshing. The tequila taste isn't too strong.

Obviously making a margarita from scratch is preferable, but for a fun girls' night where you just want to pick up a bottle rather than several ingredients, this does the trick. Less cals than wine and a bit more of a buzz too. Enjoy!

I'm looking forward to trying the sangria.
