What if you want to have a margarita but you don’t want the alcohol? That’s when you make these easy Mocktail Virgin Margaritas! Served on the rocks, these are sweet and sour and perfect for any party.
The kids love these too because then they can feel grown up!
Sometimes you want the flavor of a cocktail but you don’t want the alcohol. Maybe you just don’t drink or maybe you’re pregnant. Or maybe you’re a kid who wants a fun drink like their parents get. For whatever the reason, this Mocktail Virgin Margarita will be a hit at your next party.
Whenever I host a party, I always serve a non-alcoholic option. This isn’t just for the kids, but for the adults who may not want to imbibe, or the designated drivers. Just because you’re not drinking doesn’t mean you can’t have a fun drink in a fun glass, garnished, with a fun straw.
Maybe you have a daughter like mine, who sees me ordering margaritas and wants to try (um, no). I order her virgin cocktails all the time and she’s always excited when I’m creating a new mocktail recipe. When I told her I was making this virgin margarita she was so excited it was for her!
Have you ever wondered how to make a virgin margarita? It’s really easy to make it fresh. Sure, you can use the non-alcoholic margarita mix and add some club soda, but that’s not as fun (or as good) as making it from scratch.
I always think that margarita recipes are so pretty, and this virgin margarita is no different. It’s full of lime and orange flavors, along with some sweet and sour and soda to make it the perfect virgin drink for your next fiesta.
The great thing about this margarita is you can make it for one, or you can make a pitcher. Sometimes on a Friday night when I’m whipping up margaritas for my husband and I, I’ll make my daughter one of these. I don’t need a whole pitcher, just one will do. Other times, I want to have a bunch in the fridge for a party or a long summer weekend.
