Substitution
For an authentic margarita flavor, use 2 tablespoons tequila and 2 tablespoons orange juice instead of the 1/4 cup orange juice.
Health Twist
To reduce the fat to 4g and the calories to 60 per serving, use reduced-fat cream cheese in place of the regular cream cheese and 1 cup frozen (thawed) fat-free whipped topping instead of the whipping cream.
Special Touch
Rub the rim of a serving bowl with a lemon, lime or orange half, then dip the rim of the bowl into a shallow dish of colored sugar.
