Tastes a lot like Jose Cuervo Margarita Mix

Margarita mix is expensive and usually laden with calories (well, alcohol is too!). I don’t drink a lot of alcohol, but when I do, I almost always order Mojitos or Sour Apple martinis. I love the taste of them and thus the alcohol taste isn’t overpowering for me.

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

These new flavors are awesome! I went back and bought several more canisters because the display said it was for a temporary time only. My teenaged boys even like them. I went to buy more, and the store no longer has them! I need to have a steady supply of these. They are all refreshing and sugar-free, so no guilt! I guess I might be stuck ordering on line from now on. I can’t believe more peeps aren’t asking for these flavors to be permanent!

Sorry to say but this is not to my households taste.To be honest it does take somewhat like a Margarita but perhaps one that has been sitting around after the party is way over.

Too sweet

Crystal Light Mocktails Margarita, 1.62-Ounce (Pack of 4).
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…….

…double the recipe and add 4 fresh-sqeezed limes to the mix. Now we’re talkin’! It’s very tangy (which you want since it’ll be served on-the-rocks, which dilutes it). I’ve made this multiple times using this recipe and it blows the socks off my friends and neighbors. I realize that this isn’t the original recipe but it’s worth it if you don’t want all that corn syrup and sugars/carbs/calories that many of those Marg. mixes have.

Try this and you’ll never go back to Jose C. mix again!

Maragarita without the guilt

I could drink this all day and I have. Tastes like a margarita without A. the calories and B. the alcohol. It even has a salty undertaste. Crystal Light has done a great job of capturing the essence of a margarita which has made me realize I drink margaritas for the flavor, not the alcohol. Time to make another pitcher!

Fake tasting margarita

Just mixed up the margarita crystal light mix. Of, course, followed the directions, because for
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.

love this

hard to find this in the shops, this and the Mojito are very very good; not so much with the Appletini; going to swap with someone for a taste of the Peach Bellini… this is so good, drink it all the time.

The flavor is oddly reminiscent of….

swimming pool water. And yet, I must rate it a 3 because it’s actually not too bad. Weird, I know. The Mojito Crystal Light is really yummy, though.

Good flavor for those hot summer days!

We drink a lot of Crystal Light as a break from soft drinks. We thought we would try their new Mocktail flavors and give them a chance. This Margarita flavor is not bad. It actually tastes like a margarita with a couple of good exceptions, no sugar, low sodium and it has only 5 calories for 8 ounces.

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

My husband and I drink a good amount of Crystal Light powdered beverages. I was initially leery of purchasing this particular flavor but after trying Crystal Light Moctails Mojito, 1.41-Ounce (Pack of 4) and finding it great, I thought I would give this one a try. In terms of flavor, I find this acceptable. It tastes like a very mild margarita (without alcohol). It even smells like a margarita. While I think Crystal Light has done a good job imitating a margarita, it is not my favorite Crystal Light product.

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).

Good but not great

This was good but not worth the extra money. Honestly, it tasted mainly like a “lemon-lime” type concoction as opposed to a margarita. However, it wasn’t bad but the same taste could probably be achieved by ordering a simple lemon-lime flavor.
