It’s Friday so I thought we’d kick off the weekend by discussing margaritas! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Premium Ready to Drink Golden Margarita. If you don’t already know, I’m a huge margarita fan and I come by it honestly. My dad makes the most amazing Cadillac margaritas that uses the Costco Kirkland Signature Non Alcohol Lime Margarita Mix; you can find his recipe I posted by clicking here.

The Golden Margarita can be found in the Costco Liquor Store and the item number is 251104.

Full honestly, I don’t love this. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just not my favorite. I don’t think I love gold tequila; I prefer silver, specifically the Kirkland Signature one. I like a margarita with a really strong lime flavor and that’s less sweet. This wasn’t limey enough and was too sweet for me personally. I found I enjoyed this more using it as a base and then adding some other ingredients. After tasting it alone I added Grand Marnier, a splash of tequila and a ton of lime juice. You could also add some jalapenos to make it a bit spicy!


I paid $21.99 Canadian for the 1.75 liter bottle of Kirkland Signature Premium Margarita.


Great for camping, celebrations, barbecues or just to enjoy on your own. The Costco Golden Margarita is fun to use as a base drink to get creative with! You could add some cranberry juice to this with some rosemary, coconut milk and cointreau, pomegranate juice and Pink Whitney Vodka or just drink it as is.

Definitely not healthy for you, I’m sure it’s not low in calories or sugar and we’ll leave it at that!

I actually bought this because Costco was out of my tried and true Kirkland Signature Classic Lime Margarita Mix. I probably wouldn’t buy it again but I will use it up by adding my own ingredients!

Taste: 7.5/10 (I prefer the Non-Alcoholic Lime Margarita Mix)

Cost: 7/10

Convenience: 10/10

Nutrition: 0/10

  1. Maui.. no non-alcohol Kirkland mix, no silver Kirk tequila, (last 2 years??!)
    They only $10 kirk gold teq version premix, which gives me a headache. (1 drink)

    Sauza Hornitos 1.75 is 29.99 (great price here)
    Safeway has a natural type mix, non alc, main ingrediant lime juice, on sale 750ml for $8.99 which will have to do.

  2. Moved to Texas from Cali, I had one 1.75 Bottle of Kirkland Ready to drink Margarita Mix. They don’t sell Kirkland Alcohol here in Texas at Costco so I had to go to Total Wine here and purchase Jose Cuervo Ready to drink Mix. I’m so bummed how much better the Kirkland brand is. The Jose Cuervo Inly has 9.9% Alc, while the Kirkland has over 12%! Ugh..I miss Kirkland brand! By far the best Ready to drink margarita mix!

  3. I have bought this in the past and was fine with it. I just bought a bottle and both my husband and I had a glass. It tasted like soap. It’s a shame, embarrassed to take it back

    • Take the damn stuff back and do not be embarrassed! It does taste like CHEAP margarita! So does the strawberry version. Or just don’t buy it! We can make our own at home with a good mix and it is much better. 🤔
