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

This is my idea of breaktime.

5-Calorie Raspberry Lime Margarita Fizz (non-alcoholic) - Easy Recipe at averiecooks.com

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.

  1. I think you have the wrong # in the “Calories” on here… it says under nutritional information
    761 calories?

    1. It’s a computer generated program that calculates stats and is only provided as a courtesy. The program is likely not taking into account that other than tequila this is a sugar-free and basically calorie-free drink. Also old post from 2013 and not even sure if these products are still routinely available today or not.

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

  2. I worked out today actually for the first time in a week!!! I’m a first year teacher (preK) so things are hectic! so glad I finally got to workout :)

  3. I play with my dogs for a pick me up- and if I am really down I blow bubbles for them- you can’t help but laugh.

  4. I am always busyI am a mom of 5 so when I need a break I spend a few hours alone. Taking a long walk or doing a little pampering for myself.

  5. Sometimes, for a pick me up, I have an expensive ice cream or gelato or sometimes, a nice glass of chilled white wine, Prosecco usually.

  6. You know, hump day never really bothered me. Thursday’s are my nemesis! But I’d take one of those nice drinks any day of the week! Something I like to do on a day where I feel like the week will never end and I just need a break is to have a huge, ice cold, super-caffeinated, chocolate (but as sugar free as I can get it) coffee drink. It always picks me up and helps me feel a little more alive. Thanks for the awesome recipe and give-away sweetie!

  7. I love to sit and relax every night once I put the kids to bed by drinking some green tea and hanging out on Pinterest! =)

  8. Settle down on the lounge with my new favourite snack – apple and peanut butter – yummmm! and catch up on my favourite tv shows.

  9. My mid-week ritual is enjoying a nice glass of wine while taking a relaxing bath in complete silence…brings me back down to Earth.

  10. I try to take time out during the middle of the week by taking a nice long bath with the door closed so as not to hear the hubby and kids running around and screaming.

  11. I tell stupid hump day jokes, including jokes about camels. I also smile a lot because it feels awesome to be half way to Saturday!

  12. I poked around and liked while I was on the Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water and just to take a break, I love to sit on the porch and watch the birds at my feeders

  13. I escape into a book. I grew up in a library (my mother was a librarian) and books have always been my little private escapes.

  14. I’m with you, nothing beats a good lime beverage. Try putting a few slices of cuke in with your rasp/lime seltzer.

  15. Baking in the middle of the week is always relaxing. Meeting up with friends also does wonders.

  16. A mug of hot chocolate while cozy in a blanket in the winter or a perfectly ripe peach or plum while sitting on my balcony in the summer is my favorite way to relax.

  17. I bake!!! But if I don’t have enough time, as baking does take up quite a bit of time, I’ll allow myself to go on Youtube/Facebook/other social media sites just for a “little bit” to get rid of all that stress from school!

  18. I usually host a dinner and dessert party with some of my friends to unwind and relax and get some good laughs in as a pick-me-up in the middle of the week.

  19. I drink coffee and lay around for a bit, take a deep breath, and remind myself of who I am and who I want to be.

  20. If I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed, I go for a walk or a drive with my music blasting and singing my troubles away

  21. I make chocolate chip cookies. No ifs, ands, or buts. Chocolate chip cookies it is (:

  22. I garden – pulling weeds, deadheading, planning for the next season. It is where I work out the kinks, the mads and do a lot of my best thinking.

  23. Pshhh who has time to unwind during the week? Work, mommy, school and side business = no time at all. On the off chance I want to blow everything off, I knit. It’s still being productive! And I catch up on TV. Something mindless to let my brain relax!

  24. I try to do a little crafting or cooking to unwind in the middle of the week. No nice to see the results too.

  25. Baking is very relaxing to me! However, eating everything I bake would be very stressful! Ha! So I bake for co-workers, and they love it! I get loads of recipes from you, Averie!

  26. I take a bath with lavender oil and epsom salt to relax my muscles and help me sleep sometimes. It helps!

  27. my mid week break is often just spent doing some deep breathing and meditating. Something I should do daily…but HAVE to do around the middle of the week.

  28. I love to run – I don’t always look forward to it, but I get myself out there and I’m always happy to have done it!

  29. I go out to the garden and poke around for a bit – snack on some veggies and pull a few weeds. Its very relaxing.

  30. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don’t plan it, don’t wait for it, just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good hot black coffee.

  31. I go to my favorite group fitness class at the gym…and then enjoy a little chocolate or cookie or two. :)

  32. Oh, this cocktail looks very fresh and cooling! It is a great decision for a weekend picnic all a party in the garden. Ad as for the Frappuccino it looks amazing. I should say that these cocktails are just perfect for hot summer days and evenings!

  33. I love to get together with my best girl friends drink some wine or lemonade depending on what we crave and chat the hours away :-))

  34. I love to have a mid-week movie night when I’m feeling overwhelmed! Sweatpants and cuddling shouldn’t be reserved for weekends :)

  35. Sounds delicious, Averie.
    Just in time for the Labor Day heat wave!
    I like to listen to the creek roll by.
    Peeked n on FB.
    We don’t have Arrowhead near us… but, Poland Springs will do the trick.
    Cheers…… literally.

  36. I get up from my desk every half hour for a quick stretch, water chug and potty break. it’s a must or i get cranky. i have a bad habit of not doing it so i set alarms on my phone ;)

  37. About mid week I am ready for a drink, so if there is no cold beer or chilled wine, I, or usually my hubs, will make a refreshing cocktail out of whatever we have that works! Just one good drink is all I need…and this is another to add to the list, love it! :)

  38. I try to watch an episode of a tv show to give myself a little break – I rarely have time to watch anything when it actually airs.

  39. To take a break, i drink a glass of wine or paint my toenails. Just not at the same time, because it gets messy!

  40. Laying back for a good book read is always a good way to take a little break. ^_^ A drink like this would be nice addition to it!

  41. How refreshing! And just 5 calories?! Then I’ll be having at least 5 of these :)

    Hey, it’s still less than 50 calories, right?!

  42. I make sure to take a few minutes out of my day to sit outside in the sunshine (completely technology free!) and just breathe – such a relaxing moment

  43. Mid-week, well, they don’t call it “hump day” for nothing! Climbing that hump can be hard, and I like to make sure I’ve got simple dinners ready for mid-week by planning for leftovers on Sunday or early in the week. Makes a big difference!

  44. Updating my blog makes me feel more relaxed. Even if noone reads it. LOL. It’s just that little non-work related thing that gives me a breather, breaks the monotony and recharges me.

  45. Mmmm….I could go for one or six of these right now. To feel good in the middle of the week I take a bubble bath with a good book. Best way to unwind after a long day!

  46. I record all my favorite shows/movies – let my DVR get really nice a full and after work I kick back with a Diet Coke, some gelato and watch away!

  47. Gah, this is just what I need right about now! I’ve been watching my calories for over a month now and the thing I miss the most is booze. Nothing better than unwinding a bit at the end of a long hard day, with refreshing cocktail. This looks delish!

  48. I like to watch a super fun movie that I love in the middle of the afternoon (if I have time) to break up the week and also the day :)

  49. I love this recipe! And had no idea Poland Spring was owned by the same company as Arrowhead (or Deer Park, or any of the others). My mind was blown when I went to their web site!

  50. I take a Spin class on Wednesdays. I know it’s not a “break” but its something fun that I do just for me and it really helps me look forward to being mid-week. Otherwise I’d just dread the entire week until the weekend.

  51. Well Averie, this definitely calls for a break in the middle of the week for sure! You know my kids get early out from school on Wednesdays… and us mommys need a break, too! Pinning!
    This would be fun to have when us girls get together at the end of the street while the kids are all playing. Although, I’d have to tell them it’s non-alcoholic…bcz have I mentioned I live in Utah? (All of these mommys do not drink…or at least not that I know of…hehe)

  52. Midweek, my friends and I go to trivia regularly! It is a nice break to the week, and it is fun to spend some time with everyone, while winning some money (Hopefully!)

  53. I saw your drink earlier on one of the food porn sites and had to stop by and say hi. Gorgeous colors and the drink looks pretty refreshing. For my weekend relaxation, I like to visit our local food market and try out some new dishes.

  54. I checked out the facebook site. I relax by taking time and doing something fun as a family, like get ice cream, take a walk, visit a local park

  55. I stay active all week to keep my spirits up – taking walks, riding my bike and jogging around the small lake by our house. It’s the only surefire way I’ve found to stay in a good mood!

  56. I love margaritas, we make them all them all the time. Definitely want to give this a try! Great job as usual Averie :)

    1. Also I forgot to mention to unwind during the week…We drink, watch Dexter, and sometimes have a big bowl of popcorn. :P

  57. I snuggle up to my husband. After two years of a commuter marriage, being able to be physically close to him is a novelty!

  58. We don’t get the Arrowhead brand here, but we do get Ozarka. Must look to see if I can find the different flavors. I guess it depends on how the week is going. Sometimes I take Wednesday as a rest day b/c it’s a nice way to break up the week.

  59. This drink is awesome and I LOVE that there is no alcohol! This means I actually get to drink it! YAY!! So fun and great photos! It’s the perfect way to take a break!

  60. That looks incredible (and would be perfect with tequila!).

    My mid-week pick me up: my favorite yoga class is Wednesday evening!

  61. Refreshing drink – and so pretty too!
    To take a little break mid-week, I go for a run or have a date night with the hubs!
