Know what maketh the real margarita.
To make a close-to-original virgin margarita, you need to replicate the taste of the liquors you'd be omitting; in this case, it's tequila and triple sec. Therefore, you need to add ingredients like lemon juice and orange zest to impart the tangy taste of tequila and the citrus-y bitterness of triple sec.
For whatever reason you're keeping away from alcohol, it's bound to be a good decision. Maybe you wish to bypass the sinful calories that come by way of those delectable, yet devilish cocktails. Or perhaps, you're assigned the duty of the responsible driver.

Our lineup of these easy-to-make virgin margaritas are sure to delight you, seeing as you're skipping the alcohol. They are fruity, colorful, and completely flavorsome on their own, without the added drama that comes from alcohol.

Mix, sip, and enjoy!
5 Ways to Make Virgin Margarita
The margarita being a tropical cocktail sees various fruit infusions being added to the basic version. Doing so not just lends it an interesting flavor, but also makes it look inviting. Therefore, we're also going to begin by giving you the classic recipe of virgin margarita, followed by the fruity versions.
Remember, a margarita, be it virgin or alcoholic, needs to be served in a particular manner:
  • Always use a long-stemmed margarita glass for the drink.
  • Don't forget to rub a lemon wedge on the rim and dip it in coarse salt before you pour the mix in the glass.

Note: To serve a frozen version of any margarita, combine all the liquid ingredients into a blender, add 4 - 5 ice cubes, and blend until it gets slushy. Your drink is ready to serve.
