5-Calorie Raspberry Lime Margarita Fizz (non-alcoholic)

Sometimes we all need a little break in the middle of a busy week.

This is my idea of breaktime.

This 5-calorie, refreshing drink is made with sugar-free margarita mix and Raspberry-Lime Arrowhead® Brand Sparkling Mountain Spring Water.

There’s also Lemon, Lime, Mandarin Orange, and Black Cherry flavors.

The water is comprised of just three natural ingredients: spring water, natural fruit essence, and bubbles.

There’s no sugar, no calories, and nothing artificial.

It’s a good alternative to soda if you crave something bubbly and fizzy, but are trying to kick your soda habit.

Although I wouldn’t complain if someone put a real margarita in my hand for my feel good Wednesday breaktime, drinking in the middle of the day isn’t usually on my agenda.

Every #HumpDay, Arrowhead® Brand Sparkling Mountain Spring Water is sharing some of their favorite ways to feel good and escape the midweek hump on their Facebook page. Head over there for some tips or to share a feel good moment of your own.

Putting a cool and limey beverage in my hand, going for a run, a power walk, doing some yoga, or some mindless blog surfing or reading cookbooks like novels are how I escape for a bit.

Depending on where you’re located, the water can go by different brand names, including Arrowhead®, Deer Park®, Ice Mountain®, Ozarka®, Poland Spring®, or Zephyrhills®.

The drink is light, zippy, and zingy from the lime in the sparkling water, coupled with the limey flavor in the margarita mix, and from the fresh lime slices.

The raspberry flavor peeks through and is perfect with lime, adding just a touch of sweetness.

Plus, this drink won’t bust your caloric budget for the day the way a couple of margaritas can.

I’ll take skinny recipes that don’t taste skinny whenever I can.

Another favorite skinny drink is this Skinny Caramel Frappuccino. Only 50 calories and you can kick your pricey coffee-shop habit to the curb, too.

My family loved these and literally drank them, plus 3 refills each, right off my photo set.

I’m thinking they’ll go down very nicely over the long holiday weekend. One last hurrah for summer.

      A second-hand/antique store in San Diego about 2 years ago. Definitely a one-of-a-kind find :)
