“If you are looking for a non-alcoholic margarita recipe, try The OPTIMIST Piña Margarita. This recipe uses OPTIMIST Smokey, the brand’s beverage that drinks like tequila. OPTIMIST Smokey is made using more than ten different botanicals. Make this cocktail and you’ll enjoy spicy, sweet and smokey flavors that won’t leave you with a hangover, no matter how many of these you drink.” —Nancy West
