Margarita Mixes – Strawberry, Banana, Mojitos, You Name It
Margarita Mixes By The Boatload!
There are literally dozens of mixes on the market today so giving you an overview, of all of them, would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. So what we’ve decided to do is give you a breakdown of each category of mix, such as Daiquiri, Margarita, Pina Colada and so on. Simply read through each category and if it interests you just click on the image to the right and a new window will open containing the information for that drink mix.
This has got to be the largest category on this page with over 150 different mixes available as this is written. Margarita varieties also have the largest number of flavors available; flavors such as strawberry, peach, regular Margarita and even mango are readily available. Even sugar free mixes are produced for those of you who want to put a little distance between yourself and sugar.
A Daiquiri is a rum based drink that is combined with lime, sugar, blended ice and just about any fruit you may desire. The Daiquiri was supposedly invented around the year 1900 in a small bar called Venus at Santiago in Cuba. Daiquiri drink mixes come in strawberry, peach and banana with strawberry being the hands down favorite among most Daiquiri aficionados. Personally give me peach.
Pina Colada Mixes
In 1954 the Pina Colada was introduced at Caribe Hilton’s Beachcomber Bar in San JuanPuertoRico. The drink was created expressly for the purpose of impressing the bar’s star studded clientele. Today you can buy Pina Colada mixes in just about any store; the difference with these mixes, from the others, is that they come in one flavor, Pina Colada.
Like the Daiquiri, the Mojito can trace its beginning back to Cuba, except in this instance it goes all way back to the 16th century to a drink named the El Draque, which was created in honor of Sir Francis Drake. The main ingredients of the Mojito are white rum, lime juice, mint, sugar and soda water. Mojito mixes pretty much adhere to the original recipe of lime juice and mint, but if you look hard you might find a passion fruit flavor out there as well.
So as you can see there are a number of other drink mixes to choose from other than Margarita mixes. All most of these mixes require is ice and alcohol with the frozen variety of the drink being processed in a Margarita maker blender.
