Lime-A-Rita Kicks Off NFL Season With Brand New Flavor

Are you ready for some football but don’t like the taste of beer? Well, Lime-A-Rita has got you covered.

The Bud Light brand recently announced its debut as an Official Sponsor of the NFL, as part of Anheuser-Busch’s ongoing partnership with the National Football League. With the expansion of the partnership, Lime-A-Rita will now be able to have a larger presence on game day, both on and off screen.

“The NFL has been making a lot of positive changes to highlight and speak to female fans,” says Chelsea Phillips, VP Brand Marketing for Lime-A-Rita, via a statement. “We are excited for Lime-A-Rita to be a brand that can support these efforts and bring even more fun to our consumer’s favorite sport.”

In other Lime-A-Rita news, its Pome-Granate-Rita hit the shelves last week as a Fall/Winter seasonal flavor, available until next Spring. The flavor combines the juicy and tart flavors of pomegranate with a margarita twist. The result is a sweet, refreshing alternative to beer.


Bud Light Launches New Raz-Ber-Rita and Mang-O-Rita Flavors


Since its launch of Lime-A-Rita in 2012, Bud Light Lime has been churning out new Margarita-in-a-can flavors once a year. Flavors like Straw-Ber-Rita and Cran-Brr-Rita have all hit the grocery aisles. Looks like two new flavors are now being added to the Bud Light Lime family: Raz-Ber-Rita and Mag-O-Rita.

Brewed from a combination of barley malt, non-malted cereal grains and some light hopping before filtration, the drinks are then blended with Bud Light Lime and additional ingredients to make up the margarita flavor. Each can carries 8% alcohol per volume.

Raz-Ber-Rita and Mang-O-Rita are set to hit stores March 3. The beverages will be available in a 12-pack of 8-oz cans, four-pack of 16-oz cans and a 24-ounce individual can.

The top story of the year surfaced back in August, when we realized that ketchup cups could fan out to allow for a better surface for dipping. It was also the year of the shocker, as evidenced Southern California burger chain Slater’s 50/50 launching a burger with a 100% ground bacon patty topped with a thick cut of bacon, a sunny side up egg, “bacon island” dressing and bacon cheddar cheese — which subsequently got nationwide attention.
