Happy Cinco De Mayo everyone!
I’ve got my tacos ready, my elotegoing, my chips and salsa on deck, and I’ve got a great drink to get your celebration heading in the right direction today: Pineapple Mocktail Margaritas!I know for many of you mocktail is not a word you want to see today. Most will be going full fledged for adult margaritas filled with the best tequila one can find. However, there are a few celebrations where a nonalcoholic treat would be welcomed and sometimes preferred.
My husband and I aren’t the biggest drinkers though we will have a cocktail or glass of wine from time to time. I actually prefer mocktails sometimes because sometimes I order drinks and they are bit too strong for me so to me, these are killer. I started with BHG’s recipe for Pineapple-Cinnamon Margaritas. They looked so refreshing, delicious and filled with fruit flavor. I knew this would be a fabulous base for my mocktail with just a few substitutions.
I simply made the following alterations to the recipe to make it nonalcoholic:
- I replaced the tequila in the recipe with ginger-ale. You can also replace this with lemon lime soda, sparkling water or club soda.
- I also replaced the orange liqueur with orange juice.
That’s it. The result was not only refreshing but addictive. You can serve this to kids and adults alike, and they will adore it. And you don’t have to worry about overdoing these. Have as many as you like today. I know I definitely will.
