Bud Light Lime -A- Rita Product Review
I was at the Shack Liquor Store on my remote broadcast last Friday and something new caught my eye. It’s called Bud Light Lime-A-Rita. It’s basically a margarita in a can. It’s a malt beverage designed to taste like a margarita. Could this possibly be the economic way to drink several margaritas?My answer is Yes! I like it, and usually I only want to drink a couple of margaritas at a time, and man they can be a pain in the ass to make. But with Lime-A-Rita, just pour it over ice.
Don’t be fooled, however, because Bud Light Lime-A-Rita doesn’t have tequila or even beer in it. It’s a malt beverage. But it packs a punch with 8% alcohol by volume. Most beers are between 3-4%, and most margaritas are somewhere between 5%-and lose your pants% by volume.
You don’t taste the alcohol, either. It goes down smooth and isn’t as sweet as your traditional margarita. One thing to note: for an 8 oz can, there’s 220 calories. Yeah, just like the real margaritas, they’re loaded with sugar.
I’d recommend trying a can of Bud Light Lime-A-Rita. And trust me, they’re not paying me to say this. However if Budweiser would like me to be a spokesperson, I’m always available.
