Well we posted on the Loaded Trolley Facebook page yesterday (yesterday being NYE) that todays post would be a review of the 1.75 Litre bottle of Kirkland Signature Margarita Mix that we bought to toast the New Year with, since neither of us likes Champagne much.
According to the bottle this Golden Margarita Mix is ‘ready-to-drink’, and made with Gold Tequila, premium Triple Sec, Lime juice and Cane sugar.
At 12.7% Alc by Vol the label suggests the bottle contains 17.5 standard drinks. We drank the entire bottle between two of us over the course of about 5 hours, and while we had definitely had ‘too much’ to drink, we certainly weren’t what you would call roaring drunk. The mix was very, very easy to drink – we had it over ice and I must admit I probably enjoyed it slightly more once the ice had melted a bit and diluted the flavour a little. It tasted just like a margarita should – the tequila was noticeable, as was a hint of Triple Sec, and the sugar was not overdone meaning it retained the sourness you expect from a margarita.
At $31.49 it was definitely a fun party drink, and I expect we will have some again over the course of the Summer.
