Are you ready for the wettest, stickiest, and most SURPRISING Margarita mix BLIND TASTING? In this episode your Tequila Whisperer tastes 7 of the top mixes in the U.S. and proceeds to spill ‘em down his GULLET (and all over his keyboard!). It’s a Messy Margarita Mix Massacre! Cheggitout!
Watching Th’ Lip RUN through this Margarita lineup is the equivalent of cocktail Speed-Dating! It’s fun, exciting, and a bit dangerous. Make sure to stick around for some surprising results that have Lippy questioning his own palate – then “Man Up” to his conclusion. It’s an emotional roller-coaster fueled by some sugary chemical concoctions!
(Numbers below reflect the glass numbers Lippy was using in the blind tasting)
1. MARGARITAVILLE- 15 Ingredients
2 MARGARITA TEXAS- 13 Ingredients
3. RIPE Pure Squeezed – 4 Ingredients
4. TRES AGAVES Organic – 4 Ingredients
5. STIRRINGS Simple Margarita- 7 Ingredients
6. DR SWAMI & BONE DADDY’S - 22 Ingredients
7. TOMMY’S 100 % Natural – 4 Ingredients
Since each brand suggested their own individual ratio of mix to tequila, Lippy made an educated average ratio of 2 oz. Tequila / 3oz. Mix. This served most brands well, though the brands with the most ingredients were the ones whose suggested ratios asked for more mix in proportion to the tequila. This is likely why Th’ Lip found the “Margaritaville” cocktail a bit too light. It’s doubtful that more mix would have changed the rankings substantially, however.
