Thirsty Thursday: 4 Low-calorie cocktails you have to try
SAN ANTONIO – If your new year’s resolution included cutting back on calories that doesn’t mean cutting back on your favorite cocktails.

Spink’s variation of his vodka margarita, for instance, only contains about 70 calories, compared to about 600-700 calories that most margaritas contain.
