Fruity Agave Margarita Mocktail

A vegan margarita-style cocktail made with all-Canadian ingredients.

At Casa Madera – the coastal-cuisine-inspired restaurant located at 1 Hotel Toronto – the non-alcoholic drinks are flavourful, complex and created with as many Canadian ingredients as possible. This Mexican-style mocktail is made with the help of HP Juniper‘s non-alcoholic tequila, purple corn agave and a bright blend of strawberry and passionfruit juices. Aquafaba (a vegan alternative to egg whites made from the brine of legumes) is used to create a frothy foam topping.
