Skinny Margarita At Catch Twenty-Three

Each week "Cheers, Westchase!" helps you kick off your weekend, highlighting either a beer, cocktail or wine you can find right here in the neighborhood.


To continue our summer line-up of , this week we head to .

Margaritas... while they are certainly delicious, they tend to pack up to an average of 550 calories. A cocktail like that, rimmed with salt (adding loads of additional sodium), is far from friendly to your waistline. Luckily, there's a new "skinny" drink in town.

The "Skinny Margarita" at Catch Twenty-Three is made from three simple ingredients: Patrón Silver Tequila, agave nectar and fresh lime juice.  Patron Silver is known for its light, fresh taste, crystal-clear look and a smoothness not found in other silver tequilas. The lime juice and agave are skinny substitutes for other typical ingredients that can tack on the calories: margarita mix, triple sec, orange juice, etc.

"This is one of our most popular cocktails," says owner Rob Wickner. "It has a really fresh flavor and it's just a great drink for a summertime happy hour."

It pairs well with many of Catch's casual choices, like Caribbean Ceviche or jumbo shrimp cocktail. Catch Twenty-Three has a new sushi chef named Juan Ocampo who has been churning out many delicious new rolls since he joined their culinary team this May.

We raise our glass to you and we hope you are enjoying a festive and safe holiday week. Cheers, Westchase!
