May 5, 2018
Cinco de Mayo is traditionally a drinking holiday, but if you’re on a diet, or trying to reach a fitness goal, you probably won’t be drinking. If you find yourself looking for a drink that keeps you on a diet and keeps you sociable, try these top 5 Cinco de Mayo Mock-tails.
Cinco de Mayo Enhanced Mock-arita
No Cinco de Mayo festivities are complete without a margarita, so even a non-alcoholic one counts. To make this delicious mocktail, you’ll need the following:
- 1 cup of orange juice
- Two-thirds of a cup of grapefruit juice
- 1 squeeze Garcinia Liquid Water Enhancer in Lemonade flavor
- Bar salt (for the rim of your glass)
- Lemon and lime slices
Salt the rim of your margarita glass, then toss all of the ingredients into a blender, along with ice. Blend until thoroughly mixed together, then pour into a margarita glass and garnish with a lime or lemon wedge.
Frozen Horchata HD
Delicious and creamy, this frozen mocktail even looks alcoholic. Perhaps the best part about this recipe is that it only requires these few ingredients:

- 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk
- 1 scoop ISO HD™ in Vanilla Cookie
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 3-4 drops vanilla extract
- 1 cup of ice
Toss all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until the mixture is smooth. Pour into a glass, garnish with cinnamon, and enjoy!

Agua Fresca is popular in Mexico. Make it interesting with a burst of watermelon flavor. To mix up a glass of Watermelon Agua Fresca, you’re going to need:
- 1 scoop CLA + Carnitine in Watermelon Freeze flavor
- 3 cups of seedless watermelon
- 2 tbsp. lime juice
Start by tossing the watermelon into a blender. Puree it, then add the lime juice, 1 scoop CLA + Carnitine, and ice. Blend until the mixture is nice and smooth, then pour into a glass.
