Happy Belated National Margarita Day and a Give Away!

I had planned to do this post today before I realized that national margarita day was last Friday – dagnabbit! Well, regardless of my bad blog post timing, let me tell you about how this post came about.

A week ago, the kind folks over at Sinless sent me their margarita and mojito mixes to test and to do a give away.

Usually I don’t push products on AsianCajuns, but hear me out! Here’s why I’m excited about these mixes:

1.) They’re only 5 calories (one of my new years resolution was to, uh, drink less calories)
2.) They’re local! The cute couple that started Sinless lives right by me.
3.) Unlike most mixes, these are all natural. There aren’t any preservatives in the mixes, so you have to keep the bottles refrigerated.

I whipped up a batch of margaritas yesterday and made a salt/sugar/lime zest to rim the glasses.

It was actually warm enough outside on Sunday that it felt like margarita weather. I had every intention of following up the margaritas with some mojitos, but realized that I didn’t have any rum in the house. Guess what I’ll be drinking next weekend! I wonder when national mojito day is.

Sinless Margarita only 69 calories

I didn’t do a full outfit shot with this post because I’ll be showing off the dress I’m wearing when I do a post on the Tastemaker Magazine/ Coco Rae photo shoot (the cardi is H&M and the bracelet is from Forever 21).

Want to try a Sinless mixer for yourself? To enter the give away, all you have to do is like the Sinless Margarita Facebook page and the AsianCajuns Facebook page (if you haven’t, ahem, already done so πŸ˜‰ ) and leave a comment on this post with your email address. I’ll choose a winner at random on Friday. Good luck and happy, low-calorie drinking!

Dearest Lar,

Are margaritas big in Scotland? I know I’ve never ordered one at a pub in Edinburgh, but that’s because I’m always so cold in Scotland that I just end up wanting to drink whiskey.

I hate that we didn’t get a chance to really talk this weekend. That just means we’ll have to Skype twice next weekend and email a lot during the week, okay?

Miss you like crazy.

xoxo, Cath

    1. Yay! Isn’t it funny how knowing something is local makes all the difference? The company didn’t even ship me the sample, they just left it on my doorstep – it doesn’t get much more local than that!

  1. Well if nobody else wants a drink, I’ll throw my hat in the ring! I’ll just have to stash my bounty until Lent is over, when I am off the wagon again.

    1. Woohoo! And it’s almost completely guilt-free. Even after you add the tequila, it’s still only 69 calories – so much less than a glass of Chardonay at Eddie’s!

  2. Oh my gorsh, you and Troy look so dashing, Kitcath! And what superb drink mixes! I have not really had a craving for a margie since stepping foot on this cold, rainy isle, but I would give anything to be some place sunny with you and a bottle of Sinless.

    Good luck to all the contestants! Cheers!

    1. I think for our 30th birthday we need to both meet up on a beach somewhere and just drink margaritas. Doesn’t that sound heavenly?!

  3. I would enter, but I don’t think it’d be fair if I won. Plus, I have regular access to the bottle(s) you were already given. So I pretty much already won!

    1. I don’t like artificial sweeteners either, but these mixes don’t have a bitter taste at all. I’m all for Stevia.when I’m trying to be healthy πŸ˜‰

  4. So excited to find a yummy drink with less calories! Can’t wait to try. I “like” your blog and sinless margarita! Cheers! πŸ™‚

  5. i wanted to enter.but then got sick off of drinking last weekend (ugh!).and the thought of booze made me feel ill. but, i’m better now.SO SIGN ME UP TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! πŸ™‚

  6. This looks awesome! I went to their FB page but couldn’t find purchasing info. Do you know? I love to shop local and am trying to reduce my calories when drinking.
