    Last year I drank margarittias and daiquiris non-stop. I always felt so full and overloaded on the calories.

    I am going back to TTR in 2 weeks. Does anyone recommend a lighter calorie drink so I won't feel so full and I can drink even MORE!

    Thanks!

    Depends - both of those drinks are loaded with sugar which makes them bad choices calorie-wise. They are also pretty bulky with regard to volume. My favorite drink bang-for-buck is vodka and diet coke. Short of drinking tequila shots (and I have been known to drink a couple of them given the right company), you can't really do (much) better.

    Saying that, the coolness and taste of a good frozen daquiri or a margarita is hard to beat!

    Just my thoughts anyway.

    Cheers!

    I drink the frozen drinks during the day and then switch to vodka/cranberry, vodka/lemonade and spiced rum/diet coke (or whatever it is that passes for diet soda) in the evenings.

    I am a Bacardi and diet coke guy myself or if I am feeling wild I might go with a Malibu and diet coke

    You can always ask for a double shot of alcohol in your drink also, that way at least you are getting a stronger drink and though you may feel just as full not as much of what you drank was filler, should get a buzz with less drinks and therefore taking in less calories.

    I am pretty sure all actual hard alcohol has the same number of calories when not mixed so it is mostly about what you mix it with. Calorie wise the margaritas and other frozen type drinks are the worst. The least calorie wise would be straight shots or mixed with diet soda.

    Have fun, wish I was on my way back!

    Try gin and tonic, very refreshing and quite potent without all the calories of the syrup/cola mix.

    Vodka and grapefruit juice, or Bacardi and Diet Coke for me when not drinking beer.

    The dark Bacardi is a little different taste and not sweet like the spiced rum.

    Long Island Ice Teas do the trick here...can't squeeze much more alcohol into a glass without it being a straight shot.
