Our favorite boozy holiday has passed for the year. But, with all of us doing more backyard bartending than ever, having a good premixed base on hand for cocktails is a smooth move. Especially so if you and yours have been trying out new spirits. The best margarita mixes are easy to portion, light on the wallet, and a natural complement to whatever you're drinking.
These mixes will have your home margarita tasting so good, you might think about opening up your own truck. Remember: When you get to sample these cocktail mixes, don't drive.
Best Margarita Mix
1. Agalima Organic Authenic Margarita Mix, All Natural, 1 Liter (18 Fl Oz) Glass Bottle, Individually Boxed
Agalima boasts an authentic, classic margarita flavor. Fresh lime juice is squeezed only once and then mixed with Mexican Jalisco blue agave nectar for the closest thing you can get to a freshly squeezed marg.
Tres Agaves is maker to one fine tequila. The organic margarita mix meets the same standard. Organic ingredients for a clean flavor that isn't too sweet and a little more on the vitamin-c citrus side (like orange juice). No corn syrup, so if you like a more tart drink, just add a lime wedge.
3. Monin - Homemade Margarita Cocktail Mixer, Ready-to-Use Drink Mix, Well Balanced Recipe Made with Real Citrus Juices, DIY Cocktails, Just Add Tequila, Perfect on the Rocks or Frozen, Vegan (750 ml)
Monin is a great margarita mix for anyone who wants to lean into the DIY cocktail experience. Monin uses pure cane sugar and agave nectar for a slightly sweeter beverage. The blend doesn't have any preservatives, a good excuse to practice your margarita recipe often.
4. Powell & Mahoney Craft Cocktail Mixers - Mango Margarita - NA Cocktail Mix - Free from Artificial Sweeteners and Flavors - 25.36 oz - Non-GMO
A classic margarita is lime, but sometimes it's the adventurous flavors that really hit differently. Watermelon, grapefruit, and in this case: mango. A tropical profile means you can experiment with adding citrus flavors like triple sec or another orange liqueur. Best of all, P&M has organic ingredients, gluten-free. For a spicy margarita, check the jalapeño flavor.
This "just add tequila" blend is the perfect margarita mix to toss in your cocktail shaker and enjoy in a jiffy. There are only five calories and two carbs-- the stuff of post-workout dreams. If you need to sweeten it, pair it with a lite simple syrup.
Chances are if you've ever had a frozen margarita at a larger chain restaurant, it was the product of a bottle of Zing-Zang. This is a truly classic mix, and it only improves with the best tequilas.
