Take Two: Strawberry Margarita vs. Mojito

Blending a margarita with strawberries not only adds sweet flavor to a spring-fling libation, but also contributes nearly 100 percent of the recommended dietary allowance of vitamin C, a tenth of your daily fiber, and a healthy shot of potassium-outranking the nutritional value of another popular cocktail, the mojito, a mixture of lime juice, sugar, mint leaves, rum, and soda. Avoiding the salt-rimmed glass in which most margaritas are served, as we've done here, can save you 240mg sodium-a tenth of your daily allowance.
