Pleasant Aroma

There is nothing quite like the fragrance of fresh lime. Just one sniff and your mouth will start to water. Plus, there is not a heavy boozy scent to this spiked sparkling water. The margarita seltzer has a 5% alcohol by volume, which is about average. Each can holds 100 calories of fun, with 2 grams of total carbohydrates, and 0 grams of total sugars.

Bud Light Seltzer Classic Lime Margarita is Sweet & Sour

Part of Bud Light Seltzer’s “Out of Office” limited edition variety pack, this sparkling canned cocktail has a slight lime color to it when poured over ice. It has a great carbonation level; the bubbles literally dance with the ice before erupting to the surface with a crisp pop. Bud Light Classic Lime Margarita gets the citrus taste correct. It is a very sweet lime taste. Thanks to added stevia sweetener, this beverage is sweeter than most seltzers. You also can freely absorb the flavor of a margarita made with sour mix. You taste the lime, not the tequila. Even non-tequila drinkers will find enjoyment with this seltzer cocktail.

Classically Flavorful

Made from cold-fermented cane sugar, natural flavors, fruit juice, stevia leaf extract, and malted rice, Bud Light Classic Lime Margarita packs a whole lot of good stuff in each can. Even those who normally order tequila margaritas will find enjoyment with Bud Light’s cocktail in a can. It is very flavorful and ultra-sweet. If you do not like sweet hard seltzers, you’ll probably want to turn your attentions elsewhere because this one is high on the sweetness chart. This spiked sparkling water has a great carbonation level and a slightly lime colored tint. While not a spot-on match to a bar drink, this hard seltzer delivers a fairly authentic alternative. Consider it a margarita without the threat of a tequila hangover.
