New Year's Resolution #1: Low Calorie Cocktails
Another high-calorie monster, the margarita was long overdue for a makeover. Whittle down the calories in this happy hour classic by leaving out the Cointreau (saving 95 calories per ounce) and adding a powerful punch of wasabi powder. Her (Ruhe) clever spin on this go-to is unexpected and guilt-free.
1 teaspoon wasabi powder
3/4 ounce lime juice
1 ounce light agave nectar, such as Wholesome Sweeteners
1 3/4 ounces Tequila blanco
Salt rim of a margarita glass. In a shaker add all of the ingredients with ice. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds and then strain over fresh ice into glass.
