Ingredients & Nutrition
Lemon Lime Mixer (sugar, citric acid, dehydrated lemon juice, dehydrated lime juice, corn starch-modified, natural and artificial flavors, tricalcium phosphate [prevents caking], yellow 5, blue 1, red 40)
PROCESSED IN A FACILITY THAT HANDLES WHEAT, EGG, MILK, SOYBEAN, PEANUT AND TREE NUT PRODUCTS.
This delicious concoction of dehydrated lemon and lime juice, with just a touch of sugar, is a carryover fave from last year’s Taste-Off. Yes, it’s that good! Just add some ice-cold (filtered) stream water and a splash of BYO tequila, then kick back and enjoy the sunset. If you can, find a patch of clean snow and drop a handful into your mug for a delicious, frosty marg. Not a tequila drinker? It’s just as tasty mixed with whiskey (whiskey sour) or vodka (vodka gimlet). Not packing alcohol? Enjoy it as a refreshing limeade. Perfect for relaxing zero days or celebrating big milestones.

Powdered margarita mix isn’t something I’d spring for in any other context, but I make an exception on the trail. This mixes into a refreshingly sweet-tart sip that’s just begging for a splash of tequila. If you aren’t the drinking type, it tastes great as is.

Nothing beats an amazing day spent in the wild - but a cold margarita sure ends it in style. Packit Gourmet's Moonshine Margarita is our pick: Add tequila (chilled in a snowbank or creek), salt the rim of your GSI Outdoors Lexan Margarita Glass and say salud!

So much better than I expected. I used 3 oz of tequila and 20 oz of water. Perfect for 4 people to share a celebratory hiking drink.
We love margaritas. This mix was fun to have on our backpacking trip! A bit sweet for my taste but it did the trick ;)
Very nice! I used vodka and it was fantastic! I didn't reduce the total amount of water by the amount of alcohol and so didn't have enough room to close the bag to shake and mix. Was still delicious with stirring, but will do better next time. Was a perfect treat after a hard day.
Very refreshing mixed with tequila after a day of doing volunteer trail maintenance work with the Colorado Trail Foundation. The flavor was about as good as what you'd find in a respectable bar or Mexican restaurant.
I bought this on a whim for my week long hike with a friend on the LT. Deee-lish! Absolutely worth the weight and made watching sunset all that much better!
We LOVED the Moonshine Margaritas - EVERY NIGHT in the Grand Canyon!
I tried this on a whim. Totally loved it! Perfect with or without the tequila. Well, more perfect with it. :-)
Pretty decent trail margaritas. I used two shooters of Jose Cuervo Gold in the packet after adding the water. A little touch of the included lime and they were very good sitting by the fire and sipping.
Simply my favorite evening beverage on the trail! Works well with tequila or rum. Gives me something tasty to drink while my husband enjoys the straight liquor from his own flask. I'd much rather enjoy kicking back after a long hike to drink a very real tasting margarita!
