3 Best Virgin Margarita Recipes for Cinco de Mayo or Anytime

We have been dealing with alcohol addiction in its worst aspect. But we aren’t a glum lot. If newcomers could see no joy or fun in our existence, they wouldn’t want it. We absolutely insist on enjoying life. If this trigger’s your recovery then, by all means, don’t read and take part in mocktails.

A Cinco de Mayo party may feel like one of those events or activities that you simply need to skip in order to stick to your recovery goals, but these alcohol-free mocktails may have you thinking twice! While a traditional margarita is not a good idea, you’ll find that you can whip up one of these frosty delights and enjoy time with friends and family without feeling like you’re depriving yourself. Sure, there’s a little extra sugar and salt than you would normally indulge in, but what’s the fun of holidays without a little (smart!) indulgence? http://www.my12stepstore.com/Serenity-Prayer-Travel-Mug-Dark-Blue.html
