Ritas Margarita, Mojito, Rosé, and Sangria Drinks

In November 2020, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Anheuser-Busch for allegedly falsely advertising its Ritas™ Margarita, Mojito, Rosé, and Sangria drinks. Plaintiffs claim that the company makes consumers believe that:

  • its Margarita drinks contain tequila by marketing them as “sparkling margarita[s]” when, according to the complaint, the drinks don’t contain any tequila,
  • its Mojito and Sparkling Classic Cocktails contain rum when, according to the complaint, the beverages don’t contain any rum, and
  • its Rosé and Sangria drinks contain wine when, according to the complaint, the beverages don’t contain any wine.

(Browning et al v. Anheuser-Busch, LLC, Case No. 20-cv-889, W.D. Mo.)
