Margarita(s) For Me, Please

IF I order a cocktail when we go out to eat, usually it's a margarita that I want. Or maybe even two, if I'm really getting carried away.

I found this old box of margarita mix up in the back of a cupboard. No - I didn't use it - I threw it away after I scanned it for this post!
Quite honestly, I seldom drink anything at all besides water, but it's more about not wanting to spend my Weight Watcher Points Plus values on cocktails or wine - I'd rather save them for sweets. That's just how I roll.
And yet - I LOVE margaritas! But tequila and margarita mix last a very long time around here. When I do want to have one (or two), this is what I like:
Yes - the bottles are nearly empty - but you have no idea how long they've been around!
Even better yet, I'll have one of these little babies, below - it's all about portion control, you see:

Cute little Jose Cuervo Margarita Minis. We couldn't find these for a very long time, and I thought they had stopped making them. So when we found them again at the grocery store, we had to get them!
(So that they can sit around waiting for me to decide I am willing to use my Points Plus on one.)
As you can see, I have not enjoyed one, as of yet - and we got them quite awhile ago.
Like I told you - I just really don't drink.
But don't even get me started on the chocolate!
I'm just sayin'........

Very interesting, a nice little perfect size for a drink. I can't handle margaritas now with my new allergy, but they used to be one of my favorites too. Maybe someday after a really big Mexican meal I will try one again. Love T

Hi Vickie! Um, no - please don't look to me for self-control NOR moderation! :)

I think a Margarita would go well with that salad we saw in the WW handout today! What do you think? A pre-holiday lunch?
