The iconic Mexican drink gets a little spicy! This version of the margarita mocktail features a muddled jalapeno wheel which adds some heat and intensity to the customary tart, citrusy, and salty punch. Made with premium ingredients including Tahitian lime, Murray River sea salt and distilled cucumber, Naked Life’s Virgin Margarita is a great base for the mocktail. Add in some pure apple juice and jalapeno for depth and complexity, and garnish with a star of anise and a slice of apple or lime. The result is a delicious and refreshing mocktail that will have you returning for more.
