    I say lose the sprite and go for a club soda. the drink packet makes it plenty sweet and tangy! - 2/27/13

    You save hundreds of calories, but instead consume lots of hidden sugar. Diet products are far more worse than those not-diet. - 12/30/12

    Substituting aspertame for sugar doesn't make this a healthy choice, just a lower calorie choice. The only thing in this recipe that is a healthy part of a nutrition plan is the lime juice. - 6/16/13

    sounds like a bunch of bad chemicals to put in your body. If I really wanted a drink I'd have one or half of the regular kind - 6/16/13

    it's ok, and only ok because of the sprite. Margaritas don't have a fizz to them. A better bet is to get Crystal lights Margarita mix. Don't use a whole packet. Maybe 1/2 pack. Just enough for 8 oz of water. Add tequilla. Yummy. - 1/7/13

    Are you kidding me? That sounds horrible. How about real food? No way will I consume diet soda and diet powdered drink mix. Gross. I'll stick with the real thing and limit how much I consume! - 6/2/14

    A step in the right direction. Too sweet for my taste as is. Next time I'll use less soda (I like Diet Sierra Mist - which is super-good with pear vodka, btw) and maybe half a packet of the lemonade. Look forward to trying with some other flavors of drink mix, too. - 1/10/10

    I really like these margaritas. They're a pretty good substitution for the real thing. The recipe I have calls for only 3/4 cup of the soda though. I think a can would be way to much. - 7/22/10

    Quite yummy. A bit sweet, but probably less lemonade mix will help. - 6/5/10

    I've been rawking this concoction for years. Also good with 'margarita' Crystal Light or Great Value brand mix. Dont forget the 1-2-1 rule, 1 glass of water to 1 alcoholic beverage, no hangovers, keep the body hydrated, cheers! PS: black cherry fresca & vodka is also is delish! - 6/16/13

    I have to agree with a large number of comments here...why is a website that aims to promote healthy choices, promoting a recipe (and it's not the only one like this) that contains so many chemical-laden ingredients?! Plus, for many, apertame creates wicked ailments: canker sores & migraines! No Thx - 6/16/14

    If you don't like Diet Sprite, club soda may be a more palatable substitute. - 5/20/14

    Has anyone tried this with a natural sweetener? if so what did you use? I'm thinking lots of lime, a little agave, tequila and a splash of club soda--I'll let you know how it turns out. - 3/13/14
