Source Unknown

Just in case you'd like a cool and refreshing  margarita out on your back deck after a long day in the fields, but you'd rather not have the alcohol or the calories, here is a recipe to try.  And limes are sooooooooo good for you too.

Virgin Margarita

1/4 cup lime juice (about 1 lime)
2 T agave nectar (
or other sweetener, maybe honey)
Crushed Ice
1/2 cup club soda or Sprite
Lime wedge for garnish

In a small glass, combine lime juice and agave nectar.
Stir.  May make ahead and refrigerate.
When ready to serve, fill a 12-ounce glass with crushed ice.  Add lime juice mixture and top off with club soda or Sprite.  Garnish with lime/orange slices to make yourself feel special...cause you are.
