Sparkling Ice- A Wonderful Margarita Mixer for Cinco de Mayo- 4 Great Recipes

Hi gang.  The folks at “Sparkling Ice” sent me 3 bottles of their product.  It’s great.  I didn’t manage to put any aside for Cinco de Mayo, and will have to buy some tomorrow!

It’s bathing suit weather, so I was tickled to try this low/no calorie mixer.  You’d never know that you were saving calories.  GREAT STUFF!
