2013 Low-Cal Cocktail

Chiquita Margarita at La Calaca Feliz

It must have been a total Eureka! moment the day someone in the kitchen at this Fairmount Mexican eatery perfected the Splenda simple syrup that would then go into its skinny margarita. Once you sip this limey drink of perfection, which reportedly has half the calories of regular margs, you’ll have a moment, too—of the “I’ll have what she’s having” variety. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
