Recipe from Lynn Picard, Executive Vice President / General Manager, Lifetime Television Network.


This Mock-A-Rita has all of the taste of a margarita without any of the alcohol. Enjoy as many as you like without having to worry about the side effects of alcohol. If you do go out for alcoholic drinks, make sure to pick a designated driver before you leave. (With thanks to Canyon Ranch Health Resorts for this wonderful idea.)

  • 6 ice cubes


  1. Prepare in a blender on high for 10 seconds until light and frothy.
