Light, refreshing, and oh so tasty! Sounds like the perfect recipe for mom doesn’t it? We love this cocktail for it’s general drinkability during the warmer months ahead, but also for its ability to easily turn into a mocktail! Just skip the tequila and add a few more splashes of juice and sparkling water.
