Start spring and summer off with a Lemon-Ade-Rita

I have never been much of a beer girl, even with growing up in Wisconsin (GASP!). I actually like tequila (maybe it’s my Hispanic heritage), who knows. I just know I like it. When Anheuser-Bush asked me to try their new Lemon-Ade-Rita, I wasn’t sure. I looked at it closer and saw that they claimed it tasted like a lemon margarita, so I decided to try it out.




Like, I said above, I’m not really a beer girl, so I wasn’t expecting much at all. I kind of hesitated with my first sip expecting there to be a strong beer quality. I was actually surprised that there wasn’t. Now it doesn’t taste exactly like a good old fashion margarita, BUT it’s not that far off, with only a hint of beer (to me anyway). I have to give props to Bud, for making me into “kinda” a beer liker (is that a word?).



Unlike regular cans of beer, Lemon-ade-rita’s come in 8oz cans instead of 12. For those counting calories and carbs, 1 can has 196 calories and 23.1 grams of carbs. It’s a little high on the carbs, but when you are having a drink, you are splurging anyway, so why not enjoy it. For the Alcohol content, it can vary (due to the natural process of brewing) from 6% to 8% by volume.

The Lemon-ade-rita, is just the newest of the Rita’s. Bud also has;  Lime-A-Rita, Mang-O-Rita, Raz-Ber-Rita, Straw-Ber-Rita and seasonal flavors Apple-Rita and Cran-Brr-Rita. I didn’t know about the Apple-Rita, so i’m going to have to try that once it comes out again.

Whenever drinking, please always do so responsibly!!!

  17. Thanks so very much on your review of Start spring and summer off with a Lemon-Ade-Rita! I have never heard of this before now. Of course, I am not a beer drinker either! I do not like the taste of beer! However, I think I'd try one of these Rita's drinks just to see how they taste! The mango one sounds really good! Thanks so much for sharing your review and information on these drinks with all of us! Thanks again! Michele :)

  25. This is the first time I am hearing of this Bud Light Lemon-ade-rita or any of the other flavors. They remind me of wine coolers. I hope they are not as sweet. I have known friends to put a lemon or a lime in their beers. I like a good cold beer in the summer & the foam. On the pic above, I don't see any foam, probably because it is suppose to be like a "rita". I would like to try it- don't know which flavor though, but I really think I would miss all the foam!
