Lime-A-Rita, Bud Light Puts Margarita Flavors in a Can

It’s not far fetched to find some beer drinkers already splashing their beers into their oversized margarita drinks, Bud Light Lime was bound to catch on and try to make it as easy as possible.

Introducing Lime-A-Rita, a product of Bud Light Lime that incorporate the flavor of an ‘authentic margarita with a refreshing splash of Bud Light Lime.’ The drink boasts an 8% ABV (6% ABV version is available in Maine, Mississippi, New Hampshire, and Tennessee), and can be enjoyed right out of the can, or like the cocktail its derived from, can be served over ice.

The new drink is available in 12-packs of 8 oz. cans, 24-packs of 12 oz. shrink-wrapped bottles and single-serve 24 oz. cans.

Color me intrigued, you crafty folks at Annheuser Busch.

    The last time I drank a margarita from a can, it did not go well…. I do not see this product being any different….

    This. Is. Wrong.

     I just can’t even fathom what is going through AB’s minds.

    Oh, look at the states it’ll be sold in. Never mind.

    esp since theres no booze in it, its just flavored ‘beer’.

    8% abv sounds good on paper but does not translate to a good buzz. I like sweets, but not in drinks and this beer was way too sweet. After drinking, I wish i had more of a buzz, not a headache.

    I had this Memorial Day weekend, and it was damn good. Now, I should qualify that by saying I detest beer— so I do not think that is the target they are aiming for. Everyone who tried it liked it as well– and those were all non-beer drinkers.  If you like margaritas, you will like this.

    Not bad at all. I can’t stand the taste or smell of beer, yet this tastes really good.
    Picked up a 12 pack today and will drink them all by myself tonight.
