Delightfully addictive pineapple mocktail margaritas made with refreshing pineapple flavor and a kick of cinnamon.
Happy Cinco De Mayo!!
I’ve got Pineapple Mocktail Margaritas to celebrate! I know you are probably thinking “Mocktails? Really?” but YES! Sometimes mocktails are just as delicious as the real thing.
I started with BHG’s Pineapple-Cinnamon Margaritas recipe and made some small alterations to make it totally alcohol free. Substitutions like ginger-ale and orange juice truly make these mocktail margaritas addictive. You will probably drink two of these in five minutes and wonder when you can pour another glass.
If you are having an Cinco De Mayo gathering today, serve this to your friends and see them diving for this over the tequila drinks.
And here are some fun treats that you should be making today to serve on Cinco De Mayo!!
