well, went to the store during lunch, and they were sold out...i guess i should have expected that on cinco de mayo? they normally carry some other brand besides bacardi, dont remember the name....anyway, i got a few frozen limeade concentrates....might not be exactly the same, but im sure it will be pretty good...plus, ill use triple sec, which the margarita mix didnt call for, so that will help....i prefer to experiment, as opposed to doing it the "easy way" and following the directions on a mix

I realized I needed some margarita mix so I thought I'd try the Bacardi mix on BC's recommendation.

I was just mixing it up in preparation for SO's arrival and read the can. Imagine my surprise when I saw the recipe called for
rum and not tequila! There was a footnote saying you could substitute tequila.

I've never seen a margarita recipe using rum? Have you?

I haven't tasted it yet but did go with BC's mix proportions for the Tequila.

Bacardi's bloody mary mix also calls for rum, not vodka, and their Whiskey Sour mix calls for rum too. Its like they have some sort of vested interest in the rum business.

You mean, just because they sell rum, they would lie to us about how to make a drink?! I'm flabbergasted! I'm aghast! I'm flummoxed! I'm speechless! (ran out of things to say).

LOL!!! Yes, alas it is true that Bacardi expects you to use their rum with their mixes. Back when they first started putting out these frozen mixes, they were all rum drinks - Pina Colada, Daiquiri, Peach Daiquiri, Strawberry Daiquiri, Banana Daiquiri(that was a fabulous one!), Raspberry Daiquiri(another really good one), & MaiTai. Then, I guess based on market review, they dropped all of them except for Daiquiri, Pina Colada, & Strawberry Daiquiri. Then they morphed the plain Daiquiri mix into Margarita. So now it's just the God-awful Mojito, & Pina Colada, Strawberry Daiquiri, & Margarita in their frozen lineup.

And since I doubt there's little to no difference between what was their plain Daiquiri mix & the current Margarita mix, you could most likely use rum with it & just call it a Daiquiri - lol!
