Making a cocktail at home isn’t too complicated, but add a few friends for a dinner party, a day at the beach, or a tailgate party and you can spend more time mixing drinks than mixing with friends. That’s why we’re obsessed with New Jersey-born brand sipMARGS, a line of ready-to-drink margaritas, so you can literally leave the cocktail shaker in the drawer and forget squeezing a tree’s worth of limes — and trade for a delish canned cocktail in hand, ready to go wherever the Sunday Funday takes you. Keep reading to learn more about the New Jersey-based company sipMARGS, where to find these margaritas in Hoboken + Jersey City, and why we love them.
Better-for-You Canned Cocktails
Co-founders Brian Axelrod and Joey Angelo were in search of a quick and easy cocktail when they launched sipMARGS in May 2021 featuring four better-for-you canned cocktails.
The all-natural sipMARGS recipe is pretty simple: tequila, triple sec, and sparkling water, which elevates the drink while highlighting the burst of natural juices and tropical flavors like classic lime, coconut, mezcal, and mango.
Comparable to a “skinny” margarita, each SipMARGS drink only contains 120 to 130 calories and 8 grams of carbs.
There are four flavors already released, with a fifth (spicy!!) on the way:
Classic Lime has a bright, vibrant citrus flavor which is equally tart and sweet with a taste reminiscent of your favorite margarita cocktail.
The Coconut sipMARGS is cool and light with a mild and sweet whisper of coconut.
The sweet and fruity taste of the Mango flavor is bold and juicy, making for a refreshing drink.
Bringing a taste of Mexico’s traditional agave spirit to the table, the sipMARGS Mezcal margarita has a hint of smokiness, herbal notes, and a touch of sweetness for a distinctively delicious flavor.
Just in time for spring, a new flavor launch = Spicy sipMARGS is launching on Tuesday, March 1st.
