Skip the blender or the cocktail shaker because these canned margaritas are perfect for any and every occasion. Whether you want to capture that fun in the sun or just need a break from another beer, a margarita can be that delightful refreshment sip after sip. Ready to crack open a can?

Similar to the number of hard seltzers on the shelf, there are many canned margaritas available. Also, a few tequila seltzers taste a skinny margarita, so it makes the options even greater. When picking an option, it comes down to personal preference.

Some margaritas are a touch sweet, others are a little more tart. While these canned options might not come with a salted rim, you can always pour the beverage into cocktail glass, too.
