Tales From The Cellar


Margarita Mix Madness

We are proud to say that Beltramo’s has the largest selection of cocktail mixers on the Peninsula!

From Maragaritas to Bloody Marys to Mojitos, Whiskey Sours and beyond.  So please come have a look.  There are so many to choose from.  I’m going to be writing up a different mix variety in each of my blogs in the weeks to come.  Since Margarita Season has arrived, let me start there. Whether on ice or slushed, there are plenty to choose from:

Dr. Swami & Bone Daddy’s Top Shelf Margarita Mix ($9.99)This is the #1 Seller at Beltramo’s.  This Marg Mix is locally made in Saratoga with unfiltered citrus pulp from lemons and limes. It also contains non-alcoholic Triple Sec, giving the mix a natural sweetness.

Tommy’s Margarita Mix ($9.99) - Tommy’s Marg is a 100% fresh mix which requires refrigeration before and after being opened.  Tommy’s is locally made in San Francisco.  Made with fresh limes and organic agave nectar which gives a sweetness to the mix.

Lefty O’Doul’s Margarita Mix ($5.99) – Lefty’s is also a San Francisco favorite.  What makes this one special is that key lime is added to the mix. Also local oranges are added, making Lefty’s especially delicious! Also, Lefty O’Doul’s makes a Zero Calorie Marg Mix ($5.99) with no sugar but still with refreshing flavors.

Stirring’s Simple Margarita ($7.49) – Stirrings is made on the east coast on Nantucket Island and is equally as popular on the west coast. Made with lime juice, cane sugar and non-alcoholic Triple Sec.  Tasty!

Tilted Palm Margarita ($7.99) – This margarita mix comes from Nashville, TN and there, they consider it the best margarita mix ever made!  Minimally produced, with limited availability.  Tastes like it’s made from scratch.

Skinnygirl Margarita ($14.99) – This was made famous by a popular reality TV star and serves as a good low calorie option. Sweetened with agave nectar and pre-equipped with Tequila.  Ready to drink!

Jose Cuervo Margarita Mixes – This well known brand comes in three flavors at Beltramo’s.  The standard favorite is the Cuervo Original Margarita Mix ($5.99) with lemon-lime flavor, but we also stock Strawberry Lime ($5.49).  Also Cuervo Light Margarita ($15.99) is low in calories and already mixed with Tequila.

La Paz Margarita Mix ($5.99) – This standard has been a California mainstay for 50 years.  Made in Southern California, good for folks on the go!

Daily’s Margarita ($4.99) – Another standard but trustworthy mix for the backyard party.

Don’t forget the salt…
