I love a fun mocktail during the holiday season. It's nice to have a non alcoholic option that all ages can enjoy. This frozen cranberry margarita mocktail is really simple to make and delicious!

Ingredients

Instructions

In a blender add the cranberry sauce, orange juice, lime juice, soda water, ice and salt. Blend until smooth.

Add some salt to a small plate. Cut a lime into wedges. Slice the center of a lime wedge and run around the rim of your glass. Dip the glass into the salt. Repeat for the next glass.

Pour the frozen cranberry margarita mocktail into each glass. Serve immediately.

Supplies

I get a lot of my ingredients from Thrive Market. Thrive Market has been a game changer for me eating gluten free. They have so many options I can’t get at my rural grocery stores! Use this link to get 25% off your first order!

Storage

This frozen cranberry margarita mocktail doesn't store well after it has been made.

To speed up the process of making them fresh you could pre-measure the cranberry sauce, orange juice, lime juice and salt into a sealed container in the refrigerator. Then, when you want to make drinks you can pour everything into your blender.

FAQ

What replaces alcohol in a mocktail?

In this frozen cranberry margarita mocktail the orange and lime juices along with the little pinch of salt gives the mocktail a bit of a kick. It is not exactly the same as tequila or another alcohol you might add to a drink but it's still delicious.

What does virgin margarita mean?

A virgin drink means there is not any alcohol in the drink. This frozen cranberry margarita mocktail is a virgin drink that is made without any booze. Virgin drinks or mocktails are perfect for kids or anyone who doesn't want to consume alcohol.

What does a mocktail consist of?

A mocktail is typically very similar to its cocktail counterpart but just doesn't include the alcohol. Mocktails sometimes include more seltzer water and juices to give them a bit of a kick without any booze involved.

In a cast iron skillet or frying pan over medium heat cook the ground beef until just a little pink remains. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Cook on medium heat until the onion is translucent.

If you are using a frying pan transfer this mixture to a baking dish.

Top the dish or skillet with the remaining ½ cup cheddar cheese and ½ cup monterey jack cheese.

FAQ

Can I substitute ground chicken or turkey for ground beef?

Yes! You can substitute an equal amount of ground chicken or ground turkey for the ground beef in this recipe. Follow the same instructions for this substitution.

What type of gluten free pasta is the best?

Gluten free brown rice pasta is my favorite for flavor and texture. I've found brown rice pasta holds its shape better in recipes and doesn't turn into mush. My favorite brand is Jovial Foods.

How do I clean and season my cast iron skillet?

I love to cook with cast iron. It evenly heats and is easy to clean. I like to use this U-picks Cast Iron Skillet Cleaner Chainmail Scrubber that I got from Amazon. I rinse the pan with hot water to remove any loose food and leftover oil. Then I use the chainmail scrubber to lift up any bits of food left. 

I place the pan on the stove top at medium heat and let it dry completely. Then I pour a tablespoon of oil on the pan and rub it onto the entire inside of the pan with a paper towel. Remove the skillet from heat and it's ready for your next meal.

Remember to never put your cast iron skillet into the dishwasher.

FAQ

What soup broth is gluten free?

Most chicken, beef and vegetable broths are gluten free. Always check the label, but a true broth shouldn't include ingredients with gluten. If you are using bouillon in your recipe be sure to check the ingredients carefully. Most bouillon does contain gluten!

How can I thicken soup without gluten?

You can use gluten free flour, arrowroot powder, tapioca powder or cornstarch to thicken a gluten free soup. In a small bowl mix the thickener with some water before pouring into your soup so it doesn't clump.

They are green peas that have had the outer skin removed so they split into two pieces. They can be found in bags in the bean section of your grocery store.

Do split peas need to be soaked?

Can I freeze split pea soup?
