Can a margarita be healthy? It’s a question that has puzzled scholars for centuries. Sure, classic margs aren’t really all that high in calories—handmade with basic ingredients and not with sugary pre-made mixes—and some wizards have even developed delicious “skinny” recipes with less than 100 calories. But can a margarita actually benefit your health and well-being? Grand Velas Los Cabos believes they can.
