Low Cal Margarita Mixes Compared - Live Taste Test

With lots of time thanks to the quarantine, we thought we’d compare 8 Low Cal Margarita Mixes!

We compared 8 brands for price and ingredients and did two separate taste tests: one blind taste test with each mix as a margarita blended with Don Julio Tequila, and a follow-up taste test of a sip of each mix without ice or tequila.

Our comparison was limited to low-calorie or “skinny” margarita mixes, so we didn’t include any regular mixes or any “ready to drink” mixers that include tequila.

1. Mr. and Mrs. T Skinny Margarita Mix

  • Calories Per Serving: 10
  • Carbs: 4g
  • Juice: 0%
  • Sweetener: Agave Nectar, Sucralose
  • Taste: 1/5
  • Award: Most affordable

Reminds me of Tropicana Light Lemonade. It has two grams of sugar and you can just barely taste a bit of it. 

Overall, it’s pretty bland, and it was the only mix that had High Fructose Corn Syrup. The best part about this mix is that it is very affordable, at just $2.98.

2. Stirrings 5 Calorie Margarita Mix

  • Calories Per Serving: 5
  • Carbs: 2
  • Juice: 15% Real Juice, No Preservatives
  • Sweetener: Cane Sugar, Key Lime
  • Taste 1/5
  • Award: Most unique

This one is a lot more tart than the others. The most interesting aspect of this one is that it uses key lime juice, though you have to really try to taste it (go light on the ice).

3. Baja Bob’s Sugar Free Cocktail Mixer – Keto Friendly

  • Calories Per Serving: 10
  • Carbs: 3g
  • Juice: Lime Juice
  • Sweetener: Sucralose
  • Taste 5/5

It just has so much flavor for being sugar-free! It just tastes so rich and amazing! When we did the blind taste test, I genuinely thought this had sugar and sweet juice in it because we couldn’t believe how much flavor it had!

Similar to Mr. & Mrs. T with a synthetic taste, but is even less sweet as it doesn’t have any sugar. It has a bit of an aftertaste but isn’t terrible.

Delicious, it’s really good and I don’t know why it didn’t come through as a regular margarita mix because it has 12% juice in 5 grams of sugar tell me a more natural taste than some of the more synthetic ones it wasn’t one of the favorites it’s definitely better than Powell at half the sugar.
