Because of the popularity of margarita, many versions of the drink are available in the market, targeting those who love margarita, but does not have the time or the resources to make one from scratch. One drink inspired by the flavors of the margarita is Lime-A-Rita by Bud Light.

Bud Light Lime-A-Rita is Anheuser Busch’s take on the classic margarita. It is a fruit flavored malt beverage which has been released back in 2012. It targets both men and women who want a sweeter alternative to the usual beers and alcoholic beverages that can be bought in the market. It may be sweet, but it has 8% alcohol by volume so make sure that you still drink moderately.
If you love fruity flavored concoctions, then you should try this drink.
Just like any product, Bud Light Lime-A-Rita has its own share of followers as well as detractors. Those who do not like the product say that the drink is too sweet for their liking. Some also say that the taste of alcohol overpowers the lime taste.
However, there are also those who love this margarita in a can. After all, it is something new to the palate. It is a beer that is refreshing and fun to drink anytime of the day. Most people love to drink it ice cold and straight from the can or in a glass over lots of ice. In fact, it is already good as it is but that should not stop you from trying out other concoctions to make the drink even better and more fun.
Lime-A-Rita Mixed Drinks Ideas
If you like the taste of lime and just cannot get enough of its refreshingly fruity flavor, you can add a few more tablespoons of lime juice in your Lime-A-Rita on the rocks. It will lessen the taste of alcohol and add a little more freshness to your drink.
On a hot day, you can make use of an ice cream maker to churn Lime-A-Rita and turn it into a refreshing slushy. If you do not have an ice cream maker, you can also freeze the Lime-A-Rita and run it through the blender to make a nice cold treat.
You can also make your own herb-infused simple syrup and mix a few teaspoons of it into a glass to have a hint of herbaceous flavor. To make a simple syrup, all you need are sugar, water, and herbs such as basil, mint, lemon verbena, thyme, rosemary, or any of your favorite herb. Feel free to experiment with flavors because you might just hit the perfect combination.
For a bit of a spicy twist, you can also try mixing chili powder and salt and put some on the rim of a glass. Then, mix a little lime juice and a squirt of hot sauce into the bottom before adding some ice and pouring the star of the show, the Lime-A-Rita. The hot sauce and chili powder adds a nice depth of flavor, a little kick, and a bit more excitement.
Another great idea for mixing drinks, especially for a party, is creating your own sangria with a Lime-A-Rita twist. All you need are chopped fruits like white peaches, apples, and mandarin oranges, as well as some orange juice. Combine everything in a big pitcher or a punch bowl and you have a fun party drink, which will surely be a hit especially among the ladies.
Or you can just keep it simple by combining half iced tea and half Lime-A-Rita in a glass full of ice. If you want some fresh bite, you can also try combining your margarita in a can with some ginger beer.
