Mocktinis and Mockmopolitans

I realize it's a little late if you want to make these for New Year's Eve, but maybe you can have them for Valentine's Day or something.
For our New Year's celebration we made mocktinis and mockmopolitans, or virgin martinis and cosmopolitans.
Anyway, it's super easy. Adrien was the bartender, so this recipe is from her:

"You just put some ice in a blender, blend it a little bit, and then do 1:1 drink mix and flavored soda water and then blend that with the ice again for like 5 seconds"

This is what we used: (plus limes)

The finished product:


The margarita salt was a really good idea, it provided a yummy contrast to the sweetness of the drink. And when you squeezed a little of the lime into it, it was even yummier.

Here's to the new year!
