Virgin Margarita Mocktail

This drink is so fresh and simple. It can be made in just 5 minutes with a few ingredients. It is great for summer but also wonderful in the fall or winter by a cozy fire.

I knew I wanted to create a non-alcoholic version of the most popular cocktails for myself and others who live alcohol free. This one really does taste just like the real deal and I’m telling you, nobody will know the difference.

The burn in our virgin margarita is just as strong as one with tequila. We found a non-alcoholic alternative that does the trick. Let me tell you more…

What is a non-alcoholic substitute for Tequila?

We love finding substitutes for things like non-alcoholic vodka and non-alcoholic gin so tequila was another great challenge. Luckily, this Ritual non-alcoholic tequila still has the same burn.

You can really use any non-alcoholic tequila but I found that this brand gives the most authentic result. I made them for some friends who regularly have tequila and they said they couldn’t tell the difference!

What are virgin margaritas made of?

Traditional margaritas are made of tequila, orange liquor and lime juice so we wanted to keep it as traditional as possible. Here is what we recommend using in your non-alcoholic margarita.

You can also go untraditional and rim the glass with raw sugar instead of salt if you are more of a sweet tooth. And you can add tajin to the salt for a little kick.

If you are looking to make a spicy margarita, add some of our jalapeño simple syrup for a nice kick of sweetness.

You can add any of these other simple syrups for a different flavored margarita mockail.

How to make a virgin margarita mocktail

  • Prep the cup by running a fresh lime half around the rim squeezing just gently
  • Dip the cup in course salt
  • Add large ice cubes to the cup and pour ginger beer over ice
  • Add fresh orange juice
  • Pour in non-alcoholic tequila and give the whole drink a good stir until it is cold, about 10 seconds

Can you make these into a pitcher of margaritas?

Definitely! Just double or triple this recipe and mix it all in a pitcher. Super easy and great for a crowd!

While you are making a pitcher of margaritas, be sure to give our lavender lemonade, blackberry lemonade and Valentines mocktails with strawberry basil margaritas a try as well.
