I love Mexican food! And I love the fact that there is a holiday that we as Americans have embraced as a day to indulge in Mexican Goodness is one that I can sign off on! And with it fast approaching, I thought I would share one of our family favorites! 

A couple of years ago, Kelly and I went on a week trip to Mexico without the kiddos. It was a week in heaven; we ate, swam, and soaked up the sun. The food was fantastic!! We came back to snow on the ground and instantly wanted to go back!! We spent the next week trying to duplicate some of our favorite treats from our trip. One of them was the Mexican Style”Limonada” drinks that we could not stop ourselves from continuing to order while we soaked up the sun poolside with the ocean on the horizon. If you have never indulged in a Mexican Limonada, you are missing out, dear friend! They are so fresh tasting and completely refreshing and the perfect addition to your Cinco de Mayo fiesta! 

Made with fresh lime, sprite, and margarita mix, you can make these virgin and family-friendly or throw in some Tequila and Cointreau to make them a party.

I get asked a lot where I bought my glasses featured in the photos. We bought them in Mexico, but I did find some that were very similar on Amazon!

  • Juice of 10 Limes more if they are small

  1. Just Mix and Flavor to taste… Sometimes you’ll need more mix if limes are sourer, and you’ll need to offset a bit more with the margarita mix,  Serve over ice!

Recipe Notes

To serve, use margarita glasses and sugar or salt the rim.  

  1. Use lime to add a bit of liquid around the rim of your glass 
  2. Dip your glass into a shallow bowl or plate with sugar or salt to coat the edge of your glass.
