Also, I couldnt find the cals in the margaritas...i looked through different sites and came up with about 600 each. That sounds like a lot to me. Does this sound about right to anyone else?
I would appreciate any help! Thanks!
I sure do wish they would list their margaritas...I know they are high, but I also know how I am and it will bug the crap outta me unless I know the exact cal count LOL
I dont normally drink those because I know they are high in cals (just didnt think 600 for each high)...heck, I even went out Saturday night and just drank diet coke instead of my usual Capt & Coke.
Frozen margarita (2 ounces tequila, 4.5 ounces Jose Cuervo margarita mix, salt): 27 carb grams, 246 calories.
Margarita on the rocks (1.5 ounces tequila, 1 ounce Triple Sec, 1 ounce fresh lime juice): 8 carb grams, 182 calories.
So maybe 600 for each is a little too high? (hope so hope so!)
How many cals would you count for this fellow cc'ers??
Here's the recipe for Chili's Presidente Margarita: 1 1/4 oz Sauza Commemorativo Tequila (80 cals), 1/2 oz Presidente Brandy (35 cals), 1/2 oz Cointreau (50 cals), 4 oz Sour Mix (108), Splash of Lime Juice (5 cals) TOTAL Cals 278.
Add about 5 medium fresh strawberries (?) for 20 more cals.

I'd go with 600 cals for 2 Strawberry Margaritas.
I did find these links (couldn't remember if you said it was a regular margarita or frozen, so listing both - nutritional info is towards bottom of page, after the comments section):
Regular Strawberry Margarita
Frozen Strawberry Margarita
They say the calories are about 168ish cals for 1, so I don't know - maybe average 200 cals per drink? Your call!
If you go to Chili's webpage and find the menu, you can download nutritional or allergen information at the bottom of the printable menu column. It's very helpful! I found out how many calories are in the loaded mashed potatoes that I brought home last night for lunch today. Usually I would have eaten the entire dinner but eating out with my personal-trainer friend helped motivate me to control myself .
Oh yeah, Chili's webpage nutritional information doesn't show calories for their bar drinks.
Most margarita mixes are 100-150 calories for 4 oz. Cuervo Margarita mix is 100calories for 4 oz then you add another 100-200 in alcohol. Generally, bars don't sell 6oz Margaritas. They are 12-16oz. So you are actually looking at quite a high calorie drink. If you are adding fruit mixes (pomegranate, strawberry, chocolate,etc). You also have to figure the added sugar. However, moderation is key! Enjoy a really good one, or a martini!
