Skinny Bee Margarita

Anyone who's been on weight watchers knows that Applebee's is always an easy place to go & eat on-plan because they have several items on the menu that are endorsed by WW and have points values listed. Well, last week at my meeting, someone mentioned that Applebee's now has a 100-calorie margarita, and while it isn't endorsed by weight watchers, it's still low-points & would be able to be fit into anyone's plan while eating out, if they desired.

So when my husband and I were deciding on a place for date night this week, Applebee's it was! And we decided to try the margarita. I was expecting it to either be A)tiny or B)not good. And surprisingly, it was actually not super tiny (though not the size of a regular margarita), and it was really good! This is what it looks like:



My only complaint about this margarita is the price! It was $5.99 for this little thing! Maybe to some that's not bad, but considering you can get a regular margarita at most restaurants for a couple bucks less (though for many more calories!), I thought the $6 price tag was a bit high! So while I did enjoy this little treat, I probably wouldn't be getting it again, unless I was dying for a little taste of margarita. Another thing that some might not like (but didn't bother me), is that it's served on the rocks, not frozen. I actually prefer my margaritas that way, but if you are a frozen margarita kinda gal, then you might not like this.

Has anyone else tried this, what did you think?

Yum, that looks really good. Wish I had one right now.

I really like them! The ones I had were more yellow like a margarita & only $2.99 in my area!! The amount of liquid is close....the tall
"skinny" glass is deceiving. Only 2 WW points!!!

I just recently started ww, and had a Skinny Bee Margarita today. I loved it! It tasted just like a regular one on the rocks, but without the guilt! I will be back for another one in the near future:)

I've been searching to find out how many points the Skinny Margarita at Applebee counts for! How do you know it's only 2 WW points?

the skinny margarita calculated to 2 points on the old program, however, since ww nnow uses points plis, I can no longer say how many points the drink is worth, sorry! Teale

I asked the waiter to have the Skinny Bee served frozen and they obliged. Very nice and lasted much longer this way.

I just had one last night too! While I'm usually a hoppy beer drinker and new to WW, I found that I didn't feel deprived of a good time while trying to stay within my points. To be on the save side, I'm counting it as 3 points. Only 100 calories and made with agave sugar!
