Non-Alcoholic Margarita Ingredients

- Lemon juice
- Orange juice
- Simple syrup
- Kosher salt, for rimming glass
- Lime wheels, for garnish
This mocktail is totally customizable to your personal preference. If it’s too tart for your taste, feel free to add more simple syrup and/or orange juice.
How to Make Simple Syrup
Simple syrup is just like the name says… simple. To make it, combine equal parts granulated sugar and water in a saucepan over medium to medium high heat. Stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
It keeps for up to a month when properly stored in a jar in the fridge, so I always make extra to use later.
How to Make By the Pitcher
When I prepare these margaritas by the glass, I use a cocktail shaker. When making by the pitcher, it’s easier to stir the ingredients.
Multiply the liquid ingredients by the number of servings you want, pour into a pitcher and stir until combined. Pour into salt-rimmed glasses filled with ice and garnish with a lime wheel.
Cheers, and enjoy!
