Thirsty Thursday : Sauza Sparkling Margarita Review

This is not a sponsored review--I just like trying new products! 

Who doesn't love a refreshing margarita on a warm evening? Especially good when paired with Taco Night too, right? I'm pretty particular when it comes to my margaritas. Sometimes I like them blended, sometimes I prefer on the rocks, but I have serious standards for the content on my drink.

I can't stand the standard too sweet taste of store bought margarita mix. I would rather squeeze limes myself to make my own mix, but it can't be too tart either. I waited my whole pregnancy with Owen to give Skinny Girl Margaritas a try and they did not disappoint. The balance of flavors is almost perfection, although I usually like to add some fresh squeeze lime juice and lots LOTS of ice.

My sister and I saw this at Target (of course!) last week and we were really curious about how it would taste. I've never heard of a bottled sparkling margarita before, and I feel like everyone is trying to come up with their own version of Skinny Girl--although I just learned that Sauza and Skinny Girl are owned by the same company. Oh, and there are Strawberry and Peach flavors too. I was so curious I just had to buy some! I just bought the standard flavor.

Here is my honest opinion: I would possibly buy another bottle of this for a party or something but it won't be a regular purchase. It is definitely refreshing, pretty sweet and I can still taste the margarita mix in it--you wouldn't want more than one glass at a time. I added lots of ice and some lime juice, but it didn't quite help. The sparkling sensation of this drink is what makes it stand out.

I'm thinking of making Thirsty Thursday a regular Thursday morning post. Sometimes it will be a wine review, sometimes a new drink recipe (not always alcoholic!) or just some fun drink ideas from Pinterest. What do you think?

Happy Thursday, friends!

Good to know that next time I have a party that this would be a good bottle to buy. I've actually been kind of an "on the rocks" gal these days. Thanks for sharing (and thanks for stopping by my blog <3!)
