This raw fruit virgin margarita comes from Uncooking 101.

Eva’s Raw Virgin “Better-Than_Tequlia” Margarita is one of the best virgin margaritas I have ever tasted! It is so refreshing on a hot Summer’s day. What I love about this non alcoholic margarita is that it is just a simple blend of fruit with no added sweetener.

The pinch of cayenne pepper kicks this virgin margarita into WOW territory.

Serve these virgin margaritas in martini glasses with salted rims and you have an incredible sweet and salty drink that anyone can enjoy.

Determined to create a place where people could come together, learn and share their experiences with raw foods, she created Uncooking 101 in 2007.

Eva also offers private raw food coaching, as well as fun-filled group classes, retreats, and other events in Martha’s Vineyard, Jacksonville Florida, and Sao Paulo Brazil. If you are looking for a healthy vacation with a difference, check out Eva’s Raw Bed and Breakfast in Martha’s Vineyard.

I am actually planning a trip myself later this year. But if you aren’t lucky enough to meet Eva in person, the next best thing is absorbing yourself in her wonderful raw recipes website. There are a ton of delectable easy raw recipes for all occasions.

There are also informative articles from: how to make your own rejuvelac, sprouts and raw ice-cream;  to tips on using the pulp from juicing, and eating raw on a budget, and amazing raw vegan recipes. 

This virgin margarita recipe is a crowd pleaser, and a fantastic healthy recipe for that outdoor pool party or BBQ.

  1. I made this this afternoon. It was really good, although better if I don’t think of it as a margarita (because it doesn’t really taste like one to me). But I loved the cayenne kick! Thanks for posting the recipe and for introducing me to Uncooking 101. What a great site! (I’ll be blogging about this recipe, too!)

      1. Would it be okay if I shared a link to my blog in the comments? I type it in when I comment, but it doesn’t seem to link when the comment posts.

        1. Sorry, I need to look into this. You are the second person who has said this, but then lots of other people have no problem.
          Absolutely feel free to post the links.

  2. OH, thankyou for taking the time to leave that lovely comment. I really appreciate your support and words of encouragement. Enjoy these yummy drinks 🙂
