Reasons I Hate Drink Mixes
- It shows a general lack of imagination. C'mon people, you can't go wrong with alcoholic beverages, just mix some real ingredients up and see how we like it.
- They're overpriced. A jug of margarita mix is $5 and makes, well, a jug of margarita. A normal can of frozen limeaid concentrate (basically the same thing) is $1 and has the same effect, and stores easier to boot.
- They can't be as healthy. The USDA recommends 3-4 fruit servings a day... why not knock one of those out with real strawberries in your daquiri instead of some unidentified chemical sludge?
- They don't taste as good. Cuevo mix is the ultimate one that doesn't taste as good, it's ruining what a margarita is supposed to be and I'm bitter about it.
