Ok so you’ve seen a ton of new pre-made margarita cocktails and maybe you’re curious if any of them are actually good? We did all the “research” for you – yes yes, we tasted a bunch of the canned/ready to drink margaritas on the market and made a list of the best ones for you.
These beverages are perfect for the summer…you can throw them in a beach bag or a cooler and have a margarita ready to drink without the hassle of mixing one up yourself.
This is a slightly sweet and very well-balanced with the traditional citrusy flavors of a classic margarita. The subtle agave flavor immediately comes through and has a refreshing and tangy finish. We love this cocktail because you get two servings in a can with 5% alcohol by volume (abv) per serving. We recommend this poured over ice but it’s just as tasty out of the can. What we love about this is it also makes a great mixer. Since the abv on this isn’t wildly high, you can definitely mix this with tequila if you’re looking for a stronger drink.
This is definitely one of the more premium ready to drink margarita cocktails. The sleek, fancy glass bottle sets the tone for what you’re about to experience. This cocktail is made with Hornitos, a mid range tequila, which would be our recommendation when making your own margarita at home. This cocktail has a 20% abv, similar to what you would expect from a margarita at a bar. As the name says, we highly recommend drinking this on the rocks.
Tart, a bit sweet with a hint of orange. This canned margarita is made with real tequila and triple sec and lime, exactly the type of ingredients you would find in a classic margarita. It contains 12.5% abv so you’ll definitely get a slight buzz from one can. We recommend pouring this over ice and adding a squeeze of lime.
This awesome cocktail is made from blue weber agave wine. Yes, you can make wine from agave! You would never know this is a wine-based cocktail though…the flavor profile is very much similar to a tequila-based cocktail but you’ll get more of a “wine buzz”. We love this cocktail that comes in a 750ml bottle because it’s high in abv (12%) but only 100 calories/serving! It’s also gluten-free and organic so you won’t feel too guilty about drinking this one.
If you’re like me and call your tequila on the rocks with a splash of lime juice “a margarita,” then I have the best canned tequila beverages for you. Mamitas Tequila & Lime and Compa Lemon Lime Tequila & Soda are more of a tequila & soda with a splash of lime beverages. Both being around 100 calories each and practically no sugar, they are super easy to sip on.
