Strawberry Margarita Mocktail

As you may have guessed by my name I don't drink alcohol. This can bit a bit of a bummer when I'm heading out to events and parties, simply because people seem clueless when it comes to non-alcoholic drinks. 

Countless times I've found myself elbowing out a child to get the last bit of juice at a gathering.....well NO more! I've made it my misson to find delicious, fresh Mocktail recipes to bring with me. Hopefully by sharing them you'll always have a "special" drink in hand when you're not choosing alcohol.

  2. Blend on medium-high until it reaches a slushy consistency, add in ice as necessary.
  3. Take a lime wheel and cut a small slit then wipe it around the rim of the glasses, creating moisture on the inside and outside of 4 glasses.
  4. Pour the coarse sugar onto a plate and roll the glasses in it, collecting the sugar onto the lime juice on the rim.
  5. Pour the Strawberry Margarita into 4 glasses, garnish with a lime wheel and serve!
