I have been experimenting with margaritas and, not to toot my own horn, but I'm getting pretty good at them. However, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right? This is why I use Coyote Gold in my creations, which is made right here in Fort Collins.

Coyote Gold uses in-house triple sec and is a full on, ready-to-serve margarita, but of course you can jazz it up however you'd like. The 1.75 liter bottle is comprised of 18.5% alcohol by volume, as stated on the Coyote Gold website.

But what separates Coyote Gold from other margarita mixers, aside from the fact that they're locally owned, is the ingredients. No high fructose corn syrup, preservatives or artificial colors are used.

The mixer includes pure fruit juice and water derived from the Rocky Mountain's melted snow; fancy, I know.

But maybe you're feeling super lazy and not in the mood to mix your own drinks? Coyote Gold also comes in canned four-packs, according to the Coloradoan.

Grab a four-pack, a bottle of the pineapple-flavored mix or the classic Coyote Gold at Wilbur's Total Beverage.
