Mixology Monday With The Leveretts - Miércoles (Mocktail)

January 16, 2023  •  Leave a Comment

Hey There,

Today's cocktail.... well actually mocktail, is dedicated to Wednesday Addams and the actress who portrays her in the latest series, Jenna Ortega. We thought about Jenna's ethnic background of Mexican and Puerto Rican ancestry and came up with this faux margarita using Ritual 's Non Alcoholic Tequila. We also made a Cointreau substitute sans alcohol... which you can make in two snaps! If you are not quite feeling dry January, feel free to substitute your favorite Blanco or Silver Tequila for a spirited experience! We hope you enjoy this monochrome, sweet & spicy elixir! As always, if you make any of our drinks, take a picture and share them with us online!
