We’re in the midst of margarita season…but that doesn’t mean you need to be in the throes of a hangover the next day. Such is the joy of the mocktail. We’re no stranger to them here at Wondercade, and we’re no stranger to a good margarita, either. Behold, this lovely version from 1310 Kitchen & Bar in Washington, D.C. Jenn Crovato, chef and proprietor, says that the sweet flavors of pineapple balance the spice of the jalapeño for a zesty and zero-proof margarita all your friends and family will love.
