A Margarita Mocktail recipe that tastes like the real deal!

A killer, authentic-tasting Margarita Mocktail recipe. Yes, for real! (With a cocktail adaptation, too, of course.) | One Hungry Mama

Cinco de Mayo is one of my favorite holidays to get friends together and celebrate, but with kids… well, it’s not quite the same. Instead of sipping a margarita (or two), I’m home with the boys doing our nightly thing. Fun in its way, but not quite a party. That doesn’t mean that I can’t still indulge in a Margarita, though, especially if it’s this Margarita Mocktail!

Given how simple Margaritas are, a mocktail version is pretty much just sweetened lime juice, which is boring—not to mention tricky. Calling a limeade a Margarita is like calling carob chocolate. I’m sharing this recipe because it’s more. Not more work, but more flavor thanks to a special ingredient that gives this mocktail a taste much more reminiscent of the real-deal cocktail.

Watch the video for what the secret ingredient is and how to shake up this Margarita Mocktail that you can share with the kids to bring the fiesta home this Cinco de Mayo. Also, I couldn’t help myself and show you how to turn the mocktail into a cocktail, too. Because, if you’re over 21, just one (ahem) won’t hurt.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
