Love it or hate it, Anheuser-Busch is expanding the Bud Light line by adding two new flavors, Mang-O-Rita and Raz-Ber-Ita, a malted beverage which are basically mango and raspberry margaritas “with a twist.” The two new flavors will join the Straw-Ber-Ita and the Cran-Brr-Rita – a winter seasonal that was only available in November and December. Just sounds refreshing, doesn’t it? And sugary…Also: there are 292 calories per 12 oz. serving.
Grub Street caught up with one reviewer who purchased the Raz-Ber-Ita from a gas station “or something” and calls the flavor “one of the most disappointing ***-ber-itas of the bunch.” So there you have it.
And while the gas station guy wasn’t impressed, chef Donatella Arpaia is making cocktails with the various flavors, including the Raz, White and Blue and the Rasp-Ber-Honey Sour, a mixture of the beer-rita, lemon juice, and honey syrup.
