The days of non-alcoholic margaritas being only in the hand of a designated driver are over; non-alcoholic drinks are now for everyone. Main Non-Alcoholic Margarita Ingredients When it comes to non-alcoholic margaritas, the core ingredients include: Lime juice Lime wedges Sea salt Sugar Agave Syrup The only difference is that the foundation of the drink will be one of Lyre’s impossibly crafted non-alcoholic spirits. Healthier Margaritas? Yes please! Lyre’s impossibly crafted non-alcoholic spirits are a healthier alternative to consider the next time you’re creating margarita moments with friends or family.

Drink what you want in 2022 It’s time to stop placing gender bias on whether or not a drink is for guys or girls. Why should a drink that tastes good and has some colour be considered feminine? You can drink what you want. If that happens to be a non-alcoholic margarita that consists of lime, sea salt and rosemary garnish, then so be it. Is it safe if I’m pregnant? At Lyre’s, we promote equality by making drinks everyone can enjoy so that you can drink your way. At the same time, our non-alcoholic spirits contain 0.5% ABV (Alcohol By Volume). This means non-alcoholic beverages are not technically 100% alcohol-free and therefore have trace amounts of alcohol. This is why we suggest waiting until your little bundle of joy is born before you enjoy one of our non-alcoholic margarita recipes.
