Heyyyyyyyyyyy, Mockarita!

As I believe I have mentioned, my usual tasty libation is no longer legal.
 Alcohol mixes with my meds like bleach and ammonia.
But you know me; I'm not one to go quietly, and I just missed the taste of some things.
Like margaritas.
Ever order a virgin margarita?
You get a funny look from the server, who then brings you a strawberry concoction topped with whipped cream and a cherry.
Can I please get a booster chair over here?
Fine, we're ex-restaurant employees, we've got this.
Do the Mockarita with us!
Those of you not popping pills can add tequila. AFTER I get my glass.
 We're going to start out with a little diet margarita mix so I don't dent the diet.
3 cups will do it.
A little tangy juice mix to give it the right sassiness.
I used 3 cups of this too.
 Three scoops of orange sherbert or sorbet.
Are you sensing a pattern?
A good beer to keep your bartender away from your cocktail.
 Freshly squeezed lime juice.
And the Macerator 6000!
Okay, okay, it's just a blender.
 Have your appropriate bar accoutrements at the ready.
You can sugar the rims at this point for added festive flair.
 Paper parasols courtesy of The Dollar Tree.
Throw your stuff in the blender.
 Swipe some sherbet when no one is looking.
Add 5 or 6 ice cubes and let 'er rip!
Is it ready? Is it ready? Is it ready?!?!
 Pour into glasses.
Mmmmmmmm, frothy summery goodness.
 There's only one thing missing before you can imbibe...
A fabulous occasion appropriate chapeau!
Totally delicious.
Child safe.
Wash with like colors.
Have serviced on the date indicated.
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Seriously, this is a very grown up glassful of good behavior.
Experiment with flavors.
Mango is next on the drawing board here.
You can expect more recipes to come, 
because I have no intention of limiting myself to iced green tea.
I'm gonna have some fun.
What would you add?

You look so cute in that hat! This looks delicious. I'd probably try lime sherbet in mine and half sugar/half salt on the rim.
