One tequila, two tequila, three tequila floor? Nope, not when you shop from this list! If you’re looking for a decent non-alcoholic alternative to tequila you’ve come to the right place. The key ingredient is agave, a plant found in the dessert – take the booze away from the whole process and you’ve still got a seriously tasty drink – be it margarita or otherwise – minus the foggy head the next day. Now that makes us happy… One final note from us! If you find the taste of alcohol triggering, it’s best to give drinks that mimic the flavour a swerve. Instead, you’re spoilt for choice with the many delicious soft drink options available, like these mixers.

1. CleanCo Clean T Tequila
Sugar free, gluten-free and vegan, this has all the flavour and none of the unnecessary stuff (that’s booze, additives and preservatives to you and us).
Founded by former Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews, who went sober in 2018, CleanCo prides itself on ‘clean’ ingredients and their foray into tequila involves a rich flavour featuring green agave along with hints of olive and melon. Well if it’s good enough for Spencer…
2. Lyre’s Agave Blaco Spirit Tequila
We’re never disappointed with what Lyre’s has to offer, and this AF tequila option is no exception. Roasted agave gives this booze free spirit a peppery taste that cuts through the zesty citrus. Suitable for vegans and gluten-free, stock up on this to make some frozen margs that’ll be quite the ice breaker.
3. Ritual Zero Proof Tequila Alternative
Smokiness isn’t a flavour that we normally think of when we describe tequila, so if you’re looking for an alcohol-free tequila with a difference, this is worth clicking ‘add to basket’. You can also expect grassy, green pepper notes from this earthy and spicy blend that makes a serious contender for a margarita mocktail with a difference.
4. Fluère Smoked Agave Spirit
When we think of tequila based mocktails it’s salt that features highly, but you’ll be glad to hear that Fluere’s offering is low sugar anyway. Gluten free and suitable for vegans, there’s a smoky finish to this AF spirit thanks to the smoked hickory wood added in the production process. From black pepper to eucalyptus and mint with a helping of sweet pear, there’s a lot going on with each sip that you won’t miss the alcohol.
5. Seedlip Grove 42 Alcohol Free Spirit
SGS babes rate Seedlip highly for their non-alcoholic spirit options, and when it comes to the perfect base for an AF margarita recipe, this one’s the bottle to go for. Sugar free, calorie free and one for vegans, we love the zing and heat from the blood orange, mandarin, lemongrass and ginger. This is summer, bottled.
6. ISH Non-Alcoholic Mexican Agave Spirit
Herby, oaky with elements of bay leaf and barley, this mixes agave and brown sugar for a super syrupy finish that SGS babes with a longing for sweet beverages will love. The twist? This drink is actually sugar-free, as well as being gluten-free and suitable for vegans. On the intensity level, this is somewhere in the middle of grassy, ‘blanco’ and stronger ‘anejo’ varieties. The perfect balance, we say!
