After enjoying a pitcher of Crystal Light Appletini the other day, I decided to try another "mocktail" flavor, Crystal Light Margarita.
After a long day of work, I sat out in the back yard - good book in hand (Dime Store Magic), and a glass of this non-alcoholic margarita. The husband was a grilling and I was a chilling! Well, my neighbors must have smelled something good because before you know it, there was a party, and more Margaritas had to be made - a good indication that this was a hit! It's not as tart as the Crystal Light Appletini, but it's still just tart enough ... and those who made it an alcoholic beverage also seemed to think highly of it.
The sweeteners used are aspartame and acesulfame K, and a container of Crystal Light Margarita (which has 5 packets) costs $2.99. I think I prefer this to the Appletini only because it's a little less sour, but I do like both, and I would certainly buy it occasionally - I drink a lot of water but every few days I have to have a beverage with a little flavor (other than wine).
These mocktails are only available for a limited time, so let me know if you've tried them and what you think!
