The Calories in an Applebee's Margarita
At an Applebee's bar you will find their trademark Perfect Margarita. Since it is made with Patron Silver 100% Agave tequila and Applebee's margarita mix there will be carbohydrate and "empty" alcohol calories consumed when drinking the margarita. Remember to always drink responsibly.
Applebee's Perfect Margarita
In one Applebee's Perfect Margarita there are 243 calories, and approximately 40 of those calories are from carbohydrates. The remainder is calories from alcohol. One drink of Applebee's Perfect Margarita will account for 12 percent of the caloric intake of the standardized 2,000 calorie-a-day diet.
Calories From Alcohol
Calories from alcohol are absorbed, and a small portion are turned into fat while the rest is turned into acetate which inhibits the body from burning fat. Thus, causing more fat to be stored in the body while acetate is in the bloodstream.
If you enjoy having a margarita from Applebee's there is a version called the "Skinny Bee Margarita" that contains 100 calories, which is 143 calories less than the Perfect Margarita. It is made with Hornitos Reposado 100% Agave tequila instead of Patron Silver 100% Agave tequila.
