This recipe features a Day One Sparkling Water + CBD, which adds a touch of calm and relaxation to this invigorating beverage.
Are Margaritas Still A Summertime Favorite?
A margarita is a classic cocktail that originated in Mexico. It is typically made with tequila, orange liqueur (such as triple sec or Cointreau) and freshly squeezed lime juice. The combination of these ingredients creates a harmonious blend of sweet, tangy, and citrusy flavors that make margaritas so easy to drink. Margaritas are often served over ice in a salt-rimmed glass, adding a delightful touch of saltiness that balances the drink's acidity.
Even though margaritas have been around for a long time, they’re still as trendy as ever with various recipes including the ever-popular Spicy Margarita featuring a kick of fresh jalapeno and the sweet Blood Orange Margarita with freshly squeezed blood orange juice. However, with many more choosing not to drink in social settings, mocktails margaritas are also gaining popularity.
The Rise of Mocktails and CBD Drinks
In recent years, the demand for non-alcoholic beverages has been on the rise. People are seeking alternatives that provide the same enjoyment and social experience as alcoholic drinks, but without the negative effects of alcohol. This shift has given birth to the rise of mocktails and CBD-infused drinks, offering a wide range of flavors and experiences for non-drinkers.
Mocktails, or alcohol-free cocktails, have become increasingly popular as they cater to individuals who prefer to avoid or limit their alcohol intake. Mocktails allow everyone to partake in the celebration and enjoy a flavorful, sophisticated beverage. On the other hand, CBD-infused drinks have gained attention for their potential relaxation and wellness benefits. The inclusion of CBD in mocktails adds a new dimension, creating a calming and refreshing experience that helps you unwind and destress.
