This frozen mocktail is so delicious and beautiful! Layers of blended strawberries and mango with a touch of zesty citrus flavor combine for a fun nonalcoholic drink without all the extra calories and sugar of a traditional restaurant margarita.

Ingredients
or3 cups frozen strawberries (Unsweetened, preferred)
or3 cups ice, divided
or1 cup water, divided
or⅔ cup lime juice, divided
or½ cup orange juice, divided
or¼ cup simple syrup (see Tip), divided
or3 cups frozen mango chunks
Preparation
1.
Place strawberries, 1 1/2 cups ice, 1/2 cup water, 1/3 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup orange juice and 2 tablespoons simple syrup in a blender. Puree until smooth. Transfer to a pitcher or bowl.
2.
Rinse out the blender jar. Place mango and the remaining 1 1/2 cups ice, 1/2 cup water, 1/3 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup orange juice and 2 tablespoons simple syrup in the blender. Puree until smooth.
3.
Decoratively layer the two margaritas in 6 glasses. Leave the layers distinct or partially stir together for a swirled design.
4.
Tip: To make your own simple syrup: Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
