Prepared-to-drink cocktails are exhibiting up in all places today, and buzzbox (with a lowercase “b” to maintain it informal) is a brand new firm dedicated to offering premium cocktails made with out preservatives, components, or synthetic colours or flavors and packaged in eco-friendly containers that look considerably like — effectively, really precisely like — my youngsters’s juice containers. You’re going to wish to watch out the place you chill them in case you have children in the home as a result of the 12% alcohol content material seems in small letters on what in any other case seems like a youngsters’s sipper.
Then again, if you wish to deliver a RTD margarita with you tenting, this light-weight container is ideal. The flavors obtainable from buzzbox embrace Good Margarita, Vodka Lemonade, Lengthy Island, Whiskey Lemonade, Cuban Mojito, Basic Cosmo, Hurricane, Basic Greyhound, and Bloody Mary. In the present day we try the Good Margarita, made, the field explains, with “premium tequila, handcrafted triple sec, pure lime & orange juices.” Let’s give it a strive.
The field comes with a sippy straw that you just punch by the highest of the field, which implies you may’t actually odor the margarita. Tasting it, there’s no sense of recent fruit juice or premium tequila. As an alternative, it tastes like lime juice from focus combined with nondescript alcohol, a little bit of a citric burn, gentle sweetness, and a slight chemical observe. To the margarita’s credit score, it isn’t cloyingly candy like RTD expressions usually are, however there isn’t any mistaking that it is a pre-mixed beverage and never a hand-mixed cocktail. I like the thought of serving a margarita in an eco-friendly container that’s gentle and handy, however this one may have been higher.
