Hi cocktail lovers! This week I am trying a new ready-to-drink margarita - the Tia Linda's canned margarita which comes in the smaller can size, making it a little hard to spot on the shelf. I picked up on a whim at Total Wine a few weeks ago. I was originally drawn to it because I could tell it was a smaller, indie brand which are my favorite to support. Plus the label is my favorite color. Other than that, trying Tia Linda's margarita is a total flyer and I'm crossing my fingers that it was a good risk.
After a quick photo shoot with some barware from my shop, I was ready to sip.
Here is my official review of the Tia Linda's Margarita:
Hot damn! Tia Linda's is exactly what I want in a ready-to-drink margarita. Boozy. Great flavor. Easy to drink. And it 100% does not taste like it came out of a can. You could easily pass this canned cocktail off as your own secret family recipe if you poured it into a fancy salt rimmed margarita glass for serving.
This ready-to-drink margarita is loaded with traditional margarita flavors. It is more sweet than tart. And it has a healthy amount of boozy goodness with no tequila burn in sight.
I am totally impressed by Tia Linda's and given how many margaritas I've tried up to this point, that is saying something. 10/10 would recommend to a friend!
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
This ready-to-drink margarita is on the sweeter side and less tart than you might expect. The overall flavor is rich, sweet, and indulgent which I personally loved. It is not a "skinny margarita" by any means. This is a full flavor beauty.
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 18% ABV which I find to be perfection. You can feel the instant, boozy relaxation without any overwhelming blast of tequila taste. This ready-to-drink marg is exactly the flavor and booziness I want in my life.
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
Oh yeah! I love that Tia Linda's margarita comes in cans, and small cans at that, so they will be easy to toss in even the smallest cooler this summer. My neighborhood has a summer concert series and these will be perfect to take and enjoy at the park.
I did see that this margarita also comes in a larger bottle which would be perfect for parties. Next time I have the girls over I will definitely be getting a bottle of Tia Linda's Margarita to make us a pitcher of margs.
This one get's my stamp of approval for sure. It is a little harder to find but you can order it online from Total Wine here:
