The Perfect Margarita: Loaded and Non-Alcoholic

Sometimes, nothing cures the day better than a margarita. I'm sorry, but it's the truth. Paul is known around these parts for his killer margaritas and after going though a few pregnancies and nursings, I figured it's high time to find the perfect non-alcoholic substitute.

There was a little debate of adding these to the blog ... it's not quite like the other recipes that I have been sharing. In my response, it is not practical to lead a life without margaritas! I hope you feel the same. Cheers!

The Perfect Margarita

Fully Loaded

3 oz tequila
2 oz triple sec
2 oz natural lemon lime soda
juice from half a lime ... need to have a juicy lime too!

Mix all ingredients. Add the soda a little at a time to find your perfect mixture.  Pour over ice ... best served with a salt-rimmed glass.

Non-Alcoholic (N/A)

1/2 small orange or 2 clementines
1/2 lime
1 T lime juice concentrate
1 T grapefruit juice concentrate
3/4 c seltzer water

Blend all ingredients together. Yes, it's more orange than you're used to but the citrusy-lime flavor is fantastic!
