I picked up a six pack of these bottled margaritas at Target - along with a few extra rolls of shipping tape if you're following my Insta stories. I was drawn to the "realness" of the ingredients. This pre-made cocktail is made with 100% blue agave nectar, natural lime juice and real cane sugar. This isn't a brand I'd heard of but the packaging was pretty so of course that closed the deal for me.
And I'm so happy it did. These babies are de-lish! I'm telling you, you could buy these, pour them into margarita glasses and serve them to your guests as if you made them yourself after attending a fancy bartending school. Add a little cocktail flare with salt and a lime and no one would question you. Genius!
Here is official my score for the Cayman Jack Margarita:
Winner winner chicken dinner! This was so close to a fresh, handmade marg that I'm call it *thisclose* to real thing. The only thing missing is a salted rim.
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
This margarita hit the sweet spot (no pun intended 😜) of being sweet but not too sweet. Plus it didn't have even a hint of that fake sugary taste you get with some pre-made cocktails.
One shaker = does this have booze? // Five shakers = Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 5.8% ABV. It has a little kick to it but it is tasty enough that you may want to keep count of your bottles lest you drink the whole 6-pack without realizing it. I hate when that happens! LOL
Would I buy this again?
For sure! Maybe as soon as tomorrow. I will be putting this drink into my regular rotation. It is the perfect cocktail to have on reserve for a spontaneous girls night or (maybe someday) a night cap after a great date. Does anyone say night cap anymore?
I also did a little digging on Cayman Jack after being so pleasantly surprised with their margarita and was thrilled to find they have a mojito too. Consider me officially on the hunt for their mojitos. And of course, I'll let you know what I think of it right here. Stay tuned...
Have you tried this drink? What did you think? I'd love to hear from you in the comments section. The more opinions the better! Let's have a drink together and share some girl talk.
