Austin-based tequila brand now has ready-to-drink cocktails for us, including a margarita

Dulce Vida Tequila recently added a ready-to-drink margarita and paloma to its product line.

You bought a bottle of tequila, a couple of limes and — now what? For people intimidated about making cocktails at home, the Austin-based Dulce Vida Tequila has two boozy solutions: a pair of ready-to-drink cocktails. 

The brand smartly chose what might well be Texas’ two favorite cocktails to kick off the new ready-to-drink line: a margarita and a paloma, each one made using the brand’s blanco tequila.

Dulce Vida, which made a splash almost two years ago with a couple of fruit-flavored tequilas, has made it easier than ever for you to make drinks with its products. Ready-to-drink mixes like these are exactly as they sound: You simply pour what you want from the bottle and add ice. And that’s it.

The Dulce Vida Margarita is made with Dulce Vida Blanco, lime, Naranja Orange Liqueur and additional “fresh ingredients,” according to a news release. The Dulce Vida Paloma is made with Dulce Vida Blanco, grapefruit, lime and natural flavors.

They each come in two bottle sizes. The 1.75 ml bottle has a suggested retail price of $21.99, while the 750 ml is available for $13.99.
