Canned Cocktail Review:
Cutwater's Lime Margarita & Vodka Mule

Cutwater canned cocktail review by The Pursuit of Cocktails

I'm hooked on Cutwater canned cocktails!

After falling in love with Cutwater's spicy bloody mary, I knew I had to try more and more of their ready-to-drink cocktail line up. Cutwater currently has 14 canned cocktails on the market. That's nuts! I'm not saying I'll try them all - but I'm not saying I won't either. 

I love that these come in so many cocktail options and that they are sold in four packs. Cutwater is making it suuuper easy on us to make everyone in our crew happy. You can easily stock your mini bar or cooler with a few different cocktails and keep everyone happy without having to play bartender all night - which is always a major goal of mine.

But which of the 14 cocktails should you try? Let's find out.

My new besties over at Cutwater sent me four more cocktails to try. Plus, we know the spicy bloody mary is a win, you can read my full review here. So this week we are going to try the Lime Margarita and the Vodka Mule with the Tequila Paloma and the Vodka Soda waiting in the wings for next week.

First up, let's try the marg:


Cutwater's Lime Margarita:

Overall score:

This is a solid margarita choice when you really want to have an on-the-go marg. I would 100% bring this to a tailgate or backyard party.

This margarita doesn't tasted canned in any way and it has a nice fresh lime flavor. It is definitely a major step up from using one of the old school margarita mixes.

The only thing missing for me was the salt but I think you could get creative and salt the rim of your can. Top it off with a lime and suddenly you've got a fancy pants canned cocktail. 


Cutwater's Vodka Mule:

This is the best ready-to-drink Moscow Mule I've tried to date.

What really sets this one apart is how much stronger and fresher the ginger taste is. The ginger comes through right away with a spiciness that took me by surprise.

I'm not a big fan of ginger, so I've always been a little skeptical of mules, but in this case it totally worked for me. This Vodka Mule was strong, spicy and just darn good. Another hit from Cutwater!


Would I buy these again?

Yes, and I'll keep trying more from Cutwater.

Y'all know that I get sucked in by cool packaging so I obviously adore how all the different Cutwater canned cocktails look tossed together over ice. But these cocktails are more than just a pretty face. They really deliver on taste! 

If you are having issues finding the Cutwater cocktails you want to try locally, you can order them online. I know, right? Boozed shipped right to your front door is pretty amazing. Pick up the Lime Margarita or the Vodka Mule, along with other Cutwater canned cocktails over on Drizly.
