Thirsty Thursday-Ultimate Margarita Showdown

***Disclosure-Sample product was received for review.  All opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.

The first day of Summer this year is going to be June 21.  Summer means BBQs with the family and fun in the sun.  My husband's birthday always kicks off Summer for us.  This year Father's Day kicks off the first day of Summer.  And what is a get-2-gether without some drinks?

I received the Parrot Bay Ultimate Margarita Showdown party kit.  A blind taste test of two ready-to-drink margarita flavored beverages, which included instructions.
step 1-Salt the rim
step 2-Pour the Margarita
step 3-Take in the Aroma
step 4-Taste

1-A was a darker yellow, while B was a lighter color.
2-A had a stronger lime smell versus B.  B has more of a margarita mix smell.
3-A tasted more lime taste while B had a coconut base taste.

After tasting both, I enjoyed B more.  My husband said B was different than what he has tried before because of the coconut taste.  After revealing what each can was, I learned that B was:

Parrot Bay® Margarita with Coconut Water
-Only 150 calories per serving 
-8 oz. slim line can
-ready to drink
-hint of lime
-splash of coconut water

In case you are wondering, A has 220 calories.  Important information for those that are counting calories, like I am.  I don't like or want to drink my calories.  
By the way A was Bud Light Lime-A-Rita.  
I was surprised that I picked B as I love lime.  But after drinking A and then drinking B, Parrot Bay Margarita with Coconut Water won me over!
