Jose Cuervo Drops Light Strawberry Margarita, Mango and Black Cherry Seltzers
With summer just around the corner, margarita season is certainly coming. COVID-19 pandemic might have put a blight on most people's plans, but this does not mean summer cannot be anjoyed with a glass of margarita, or two, shared with some of the closest family and friends while socially distancing from the rest of the world.
Jose Cuervo Launches Light Strawberry Margarita
Even though it is fun to have your own restaurant-worthy margarita using a mix of ingredients, sometimes it is still nice to have something ready to drink for those days you want something that has a right mix of bitter, sour, and sweet.
Jose Cuervo, the trusted tequila and margarita brand, has come out with a summer-perferct flavor, the Strawberry Light Margarita.
Since Jose Cuervo Strawberry Margarita is ready to drink, adding some ice is more than enough. If you want it fancier, then you can place the drink on a salted rim and place some strawberry garnish. If you want a drink reminiscent of the ones being served by the beach, then you can blend the bottled beverage with ice and enjoy a frozen Jose Cuervo margarita instead.
Drinking one or two of this new flavor is not going to make anyone gain weight too, which is a winner for some. Each serving of Jose Cuervo's Strawberry Light Margarita only has 120 calories.
The new flavor is being sold in 1.75 liter bottles, which are now available at various retailers for just $15.99 at the moment.
Jose Cuervo Seltzer Comes in Two New Flavors
Seltzer fans also can enjoy something new with Jose Cuervo. The brand is offering two more flavors of its tequila-based hard seltzer: one in mango and the other in black cherry flavor. The two are joining the well-loved lime and grapefruit versions.
The Mango flavor is depicted by Jose Cuervo as having a citrusy taste and some level of creaminess. Meanwhile, the Black Cherry is described as being tart and having a bit of woody finish. The two new seltzer flavors have hints of of agave, and commonly made with real Cuervo tequila.
What makes these new drinks nice is that both, unlike their competitors, boast of zero carbs and zero sugar.
Cuervo's tequila-based hard seltzers were specifically designed for "health conscious consumers who live an active lifestyle and want to have fun," based on a statement provided by the company to Mashed.
Seltzers are popular among those who want to quit sodas and other sugary drinks but still cannot commit to the idea of only drinking water forever. Some have reported that seltzers aided weight loss and can keep someone hydraded for significant amount of time, just like water.
According to Toni Marinucci, MS, RDN, a registered dietitian with a master's degree in nutrition and dietetics, seltzers can be so much more filling than plain water. The adverse effect is that one cannot drink as much seltzer as they want, unlike water.
The only issue with seltzers is that can make a person a burping and gas-passing machine.
