This is one of my most common and favorite drinks. Don’t let this drink’s minimalism fool you—the best things come in simple packages. Pour a little tequila over ice and mix in some club soda before garnishing with a squeeze of lime and grapefruit. It has way fewer calories than a margarita but plenty of refreshing, citrus-y flavor (and no added sugar!).

Where are the 20 grams of Carbs coming from? You would have to add a 1/2 cup of lime juice and a 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice to get 20 grams of carbs...unless I am missing soemthing???

    Hi Tony - thanks for the note. We went back to our nutrition calculator and re-calculated. You're right - the carb count was off and it has now been updated.

Hahaha Ok I am calling out Ted. That was definitely an advertisement that has nothing to do with the content of the article. Maybe he had a few too many of your recommended drink. I look forward to trying this out. Thank you

    Hi Ted! I'm not sure which video you're referring to? Maybe an advertisement on the site? The coronavirus is absolutely a concern to us. Sorry if there was something you saw that was inconsistent with that.
