Chances are, you know someone who will want a Virgin Margarita this spring, summer, or heck, this Cinco de Mayo.

You’re lookin’ at her.

This boozy blogger is currently pregnant, which means no booze for me until Lady Baby 2.0 arrives in early September.

Whether you’re currently not drinking, are underage or don’t drink at all, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a favorite summertime drink.

The classic Strawberry Margarita… without booze! Also, it’s also vegan and can be made paleo-friendly! You’re welcome, Internet.

I won’t lie: Margaritas and I have a spotty history, at best. At worst, wellllll… They’re delicious, but my goodness, they can sneak up on you if you’re not careful!

This summer, I’m stickin’ to these no booze margs because they’re refreshing, sweet and a little tart… but not too tart!

The fact that they contain some of my favorite warm weather flavors—strawberries, orange and lime—just makes ‘em all the sweeter.

A blender, full of frozen Strawberry Virgin Margarita, sits on a marble countertop, surrounded by strawberries and juiced limes.

I have a feeling they’ll be a perfect addition to any pool party, girls’ night in, mid-afternoon pick-me-up treat, etc. because who doesn’t love this combination of flavors? And who doesn’t love a refreshing, fun-looking non-alcoholic beverage to sip on while it’s hot outside?

For the record, I’m totally the woman who orders a fancy mocktail at a restaurant for no other reason than I think it’s fun to change things up from time to time.

Tips and Tricks to Making the BEST Strawberry Virgin Margarita

  • This recipe took a few iterations before I found the right combination for my tastebuds. If you like your cocktails a little more tart, use less agave nectar (and add more as needed.) If you like ’em sweeter, I suggest trying what’s written below, but then tasting and potentially adding a little more agave if it’s not sweet enough.
  • Fresh squeezed lime juice and orange juice is best used here, but if you’re in a pinch, you can use the bottled stuff.
  • If you don’t have Orange Blossom Water and don’t want to go to the store to get it, that’s OK. You can make the recipe without it. (I think it adds a little something extra, but it’s not imperative to making an utterly delicious virgin marg.)
  • Double, triple, quadruple, etc. for a crowd!

The best news, other than this mocktail tasting amazing, is the fact that you need very few ingredients, tools and time to mix ‘em up!

In fact, you probably have everything you need in your kitchen already, minus one ingredient that’s a bit more specialty.

Blender? Check.

Frozen strawbs? Check.

OJ and lime juice? Check and check.

You’re all set. These beauties are simple, but oh-so-delicious!
