Wine-A-Rita – Delicious Margarita Cocktail With A Twist

Is there ever a bad time for a margarita?  Not that I can think of 🙂  But, your traditional margaritas are loaded with calories, so I will admit that I typically avoid them.  So, with Cinco de Mayo right around the corner and with my love for making wine cocktails, I decided to make my very own Wine-A-Rita.  This Margarita Cocktail has lots of flavor, a tad less tequila (so you can have more than one without…well, you know the song..1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila…floor), and less calories than your traditional margarita mix.

Less Calorie Margarita Cocktail

As you can tell by the name, I added wine to my margarita cocktail, I used CK Mondavi and Family Sauvignon Blanc because it’s refreshing citrus notes would pair perfectly with the orange and lime juices and… I had a bottle open after making my white wine vinaigrette 😉

Okay, let’s get this drink made…here is my Wine-A-Rita Cocktail recipe, be sure to Print It and Pin It so that you can make it again and again.
