Enjoy National Margarita Day with Zero Proof!

Happy National Margarita Day! This work-week is kicking off on the right foot with one of the best-mixed drinks around. (From alcoholic, to non-alcoholic options, there are many ways to make a perfect Margarita, which is why we have turned to Ritual Zero Proof for inspiration.)

Since the 1930s, people around the globe have enjoyed margaritas in a variety of styles. I, personally, prefer chocolate margaritas as my wind-down weekend drink — but I’m no stranger to the classic varieties as well!

Ritual Zero Proof is ready for today and has shared these delicious cocktails you can make right at home!

Ritual Zero Proof is a delicious tequila alternative for those of you who want to enjoy all the taste of tequila, but without the classic alcohol side effects. I gave these Zero Proof recipes a try this weekend, and I was pleasantly surprised!

Zero Proof is a great alcohol-alternative and it doesn’t compromise taste or quality.
