How Much Sugar is In Other Margaritas?

How Much Sugar is In Other Margaritas?

If you want to make margaritas at home, you've traditionally had two choices - super high sugar mixers that use natural ingredients, or zero sugar mixers that are packed with artificial ingredients you couldn't even pronounce. The truth is, most margarita mixes are either packed with the sweet stuff, or are low sugar margaritas loaded with chemicals. The most sold brand in the U.S. actually has 50% of your recommended sugar serving. That's a high price to pay for one drink! You work hard staying active and watching what you eat, so why should a cocktail with friends or treating yourself fight against that? FICKS thinks you deserve a low sugar cocktail mix that meets your active lifestyle, and let's you feel good about what you're drinking.

FICKS formulated our low sugar margaritas to deliver this low sugar, about half the sugar of other all natural mixers in fact, so you can enjoy your cocktail without all the guilt. And because we never use any artificial ingredients, you don't have to worry about what you're putting into your body.

And this was much needed to fix better-for-you cocktails. I mean think about the sugar in margaritas from leading all natural cocktail mixers compared to other foods you might avoid when cutting sugar:

And when you look at the low sugar options, the ingredients you see are scarier than an empty cocktail glass! Check out the ingredients in the largest zero sugar cocktail mix brand compared to the FICKS Margarita Mix. The other brand has more than double the ingredients, and if you can pronounce some of them, more power to you:
