I have held this gem in abeyance with its brethren, awaiting pic approval. The stars have aligned and I am determined to rid my reefer of big azz CANs taking up precious space.

From the CAN: "Margarita with a Twist"; "Try It Over Ice!"; "Enjoy Responsibly Please Recycle".

Once more, I got a loud Crack!, but given that there was going to be 25 (!) fl. oz. of it, the Glug would not be inverted. This must be a joke, right? If CrAN was magenta, then this was definitely raspberry. It fizzed in the glass like soda pop, making a fizzy two-fingered head of deep purple before taking a bow and fading into obscurity. I was left with a glass filled with fizzing, popping liquid, defying me to CANtinue. Nose smelled of artificial raspberry, like kiddie CANdy, which was entirely disappointing. I miss my paternal Grummy and her raspberry bushes, which smelled as fragrant and enticing in the summer as anything that I CAN remember. This smelled like a travesty. Color was a deep purple (SRM = N/A) with NE-quality clarity. Mouthfeel was thin, but fizzy, reinforcing the idea of soda pop. The flavor was that same artificial raspberry taste that I garnered from the nose. Better drinking from the chem lab, I suppose, but I may not have been their target audience. I was not going to stoop to adding ice, as I could not see how that would help, but it needed help and in no small way. Man, this was sickeningly sweet and much too close to soda pop for comfort. Finish was sweet, fruity and just not my bag.

Pours a bright red with pink foam. The smell was alcohol and artificial fruit. Very sweet taste with a syrupy mouthfeel which made the aftertaste last way too long.

Raz-Ber-Rita pours a reddish purplish color with no head and lots of bubbles. There is a very sweet smell that smells like a chemical factory. The taste has a very strange fake chemical raspberry flavor, with hints of cheap beer trying to come through. Flat, and while prominent flavors, they are bad. Overall it's chemically and rather fake, avoid.

Nothing can prepare you for the color of Barney the Dinosaur in a glass. Barely noticeable fleeting pink head dwindles quicker than a fart in the wind. Aroma reminds me of the flavor of a Warhead sour candy blue raspberry, with default berry notes and some alcoholic medicinal qualities. Even over ice I don't see how it would help this Raz-ber-Rita...wow. The madness has to stop, but I'm sure somebody out there enjoys this type of abuse, different strokes for different folks. Harsh ass fusel alcohol finish amongst the mild salted berry concentrated sugar notes. Headache inducing almost instantly, puts a smile on my face to know that I will never walk down the path of canned Bud Light Lime concoction's lemmings have gone...which has one ultimate outcome a direct path toward a black out drinking session or worse diabetes induced coma (which also leads to a black out in a roundabout way). Mouthfeel makes your acid reflux come out of hibernation and burn your ears for consuming something this putrid, gag reflex inducing carbonated man made liquids combine to form this shit. Overall, I would never guide anybody toward this path of enlightenment, or eternal black out for that matter.
