Bellaire mom Lucy Corona, a margarita fan who felt guilty drinking the 500-calorie cocktails, has developed SlimRitas, a fresh-tasting bottled mix that slices the caloric intake down to 100. A bright balance of tart and sweet flavors, SlimRitas are mixed up at the Houstonian Hotel and Taco Milagro; the bottled mix is sold at Richard’s Fine Wines and Liquors.
