No Kidding. . . a Skinny Margarita!
Bellaire mom, Lucy Corona, wanted a great tasting Margarita that didn’t have 500 calories. After sampling every low-calorie mix she could find, she discovered that most of them taste like “drinking bad perfume”. That is when Lucy decided to develop her own great tasting low calorie margarita mix. Thus SlimRitas was born. Finally, there is a fresh juice margarita mix that uses zero calorie natural sweeteners and has no diet after taste. Sample slimritas at the Houstonian Hotel and Taco Milagro, or pick up the bottled mix at Richard’s Fine Wines and Liquors.
