What You Need

Classic margarita flavors come from a combination of lime juice, tequila/agave, and orange liquor. For this virgin margarita, we’re taking the same flavors, but making it non-alcoholic!

  • Lime juice: always use fresh lime juice! It’s so much better than the pre-squeezed kind.
  • Agave Nectar: don’t skip the agave nectar. Tequila and agave come from the same plant, so there are similar flavors. It also adds a hint of sweetness.
  • Orange Juice: a splash of orange juice is used in place of orange liquor. Orange juice also helps cut the sourness of lime juice.
  • Sparkling Water: top your virgin marg with some sparkling water!
