A new figure flattering margarita packs delicious taste in just 140 calories per cocktail. The Skinny Margarita ($13) is made with Don Julio Reposado Blue Agave Tequila, Triple Sec, Aloe Juice, Agave Nectar and fresh squeezed lime juice, and features flavors including traditional, mango, pomegranate and guava.

Executive Chef Noe Alcala recommends pairing the skinny cocktails with healthy menu options such as Hussong’s Albondiga Soup, served with many vegetables, or the Arugula Chicken Salad.
