Hi cocktail lovers! It has been a couple of years since I originally tried the Cutwater cocktails. Now that I've tried 200+ canned cocktails I wanted to revisit the Cutwater margarita and see how it stacks up. I first tried the Cutwater tequila marg in 2018 when they were calling it a lime margarita and I'm secretly hoping they updated the flavor with the name change.
I wasn't a huge fan of this ready-to-drink margarita back then - I only gave it 3 out of 5 cocktail shakers - but I really don't remember much about it. So I'm trying it again and serving up a fresh review of the Cutwater marg. If you want to take a peek at my original review, you can check it out here.
Here is my official review of the Cutwater Tequila Margarita:
I am going to stick to my original 3 out of 5 score. This is a pretty average premade margarita. To me it tastes like a well drink level margarita. It has some flavor, maybe a little kick, but overall it is just nothing to write home about.
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
This ready-to-drink margarita is not sweet at all. Some margaritas have a hint of sweetness from the citrus but the Cutwater margarita does not. This one is more tart if anything.
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
Officially this one rings in at 12.5% ABV so it is stronger than a lot of the canned cocktails on the market. I can't say that I got a buzz right off but I'm guessing if you finished the whole can you would catch one.
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
Nah, I think I'll skip this one in favor of other Cutwater canned cocktails. Their marg is not my favorite cocktail in their line up and there are a lot of other ready-to-drink margaritas that I like better.
