Juicer Juices and Tequila?

Every morning, I use my Omega juicer to feed my cells with some life.  I never really thought to use it at night to feed them with some tequila! It's hard enough to stay on a low-cal diet, let alone figure out how to drink in a low-cal way. Introducing: my new best friend.
