Frozen margaritas are a triple threat: first, the calorie count is invariably high; second, an average glass can pack more sugar than a pint of Haagen-Dazs Crème Brulèe ice cream; and third, the salt rim can knock out nearly a day’s worth of sodium in an instant. Instead, opt for sangria. You’ll get antioxidants from the wine, including heart-healthy resveratrol, and an added boost of nutrients from the fruit.
