Sparkling, light and tart. A Lime Spritzer is my go-to mocktail. Unlike fizzy sodas like 7UP or Sprite, this has a sharp taste from the freshly squeezed lime. Adding mint will make this a Virgin Mojito (mocktail) and is delicious with any of our TexMex recipes but we adore it most paired with our TexMex slow-cooked beef.
