Tastes a lot like Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix
Therefore I was delighted to discover these new Crystal Light mocktails in my local grocery store (about three bucks a canister), marked as temporarily available. The Crystal Light Margarita mix tastes just like Jose Cuervo Margarita mix to me, even the slight salty tang. My husband wasn’t as much a fan. This one and the Mojito are so good all on their own and I love them. The Appletini is a bit too much like drinking Jolly Rancher green apple candy, so I only like that one in small doses. They are obviously not as syrupy-thick as real Margarita mix, but that’s a plus to me. It’s very refreshing on a hot summer day.
Each canister has 5 packets, and each packet makes 2 quarts. An 8 oz glass of this is a no-guilt 5 calories. It’s great both as an option for non-drinkers and to add alcohol too if you wish.
I went back to the grocery store and they no longer have these, so this is the only place I know to get them now.
UPDATE: this is the response I got from Kraft when asking if these would be available.

New Flavors Review
Margaritas are my guilty pleasure. Crystal light margarita flavor is ghastly. Much too sweet, not enough lime flavor. Smells funny too . I might have to add tequila, salt and lime to make it palatable. Bought two packages because I like all the other crystal light I have tasted. Bleh
It’s OK, but to be great…….
Try this and you’ll never go back to Jose C. mix again!
Maragarita without the guilt
Fake tasting margarita
years I have been using the other flavors. This one is of great disappointment. It only tastes
like sweetened water, no identifying citrus or margarita flavor. I like the lemonade the best.
One time there was a lime flavor that I really liked, too. No, I will not use up the other 4
packets. Waste of money.

The flavor is oddly reminiscent of….
Good flavor for those hot summer days!
Each canister has 5 plastic pouches and each pouch makes 2 quarts. Mix it up and serve it cold with ice or refrigerate for the best flavor.
Crystal Light is a good low calorie drink and the broad flavor mix helps keep them tasting good. We found this margarita taste to be better than the Appletini flavor. I still like some of the original Crystal light flavors more but this is good for a change. It tastes as good as some other more expensive margarita mixes. I looked at a bottle of one of the famous brands that has 100 calories for 8 ounces and 25 sugars. That is a huge difference!
Try it you will like it!
It’s not my favorite but still pretty good
If you live near a Meijer, you can buy a five pack canister of the Margarita drink mix (as well as Crystal Light Mocktails Appletini, 1.69-Ounce (Pack of 4) and Crystal Light Moctails Mojito, 1.41-Ounce (Pack of 4)) for about 2.79.
If you recycle your plastics, be aware that Crystal Light sells its product in a #5 container. Unless you live in a relatively progressive place, #5 plastics are typically very difficult to recycle. Whole Foods engages in a recycling initiative to collect #5 plastics but if you don’t live near one and you care about recycling, these can be a challenging item to deal with.
At the end of the day, this is a beverage that I would drink again but I don’t know if I would purchase it if some of my other Crystal Light favorites were available like Crystal Light Sunrise Ruby Red Grapefruit, 3.4-Ounce Unit (Pack of 6) and Crystal Light Moctails Mojito, 1.41-Ounce (Pack of 4).
