This Coconut Margarita is snow-white in color but tastes like a cool and refreshing tropical cocktail. They kind of taste like a cross between a Margarita and a Pina Colada- two of my favorite cocktails.
A can of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut makes them fabulously thick and creamy and provides all of the sweetness they need. These Coconut Margaritas really taste quite indulgent. Just like those drinks you sip on the beach at fancy Caribbean resorts.
Margaritas are my favorite cocktails to make and I’ve made many different variations: Blackberry Margaritas, Tangerine Margaritas, Pepper Jelly Margaritas, Jalapeno Watermelon Margaritas.
These Coconut Margaritas are among my favorite. They are plenty sweet with lots of coconut flavor and just the right amount of tequila to get the party started.
Making Margaritas from scratch instead of using a bottled mix makes them taste so much better. And they’re really not hard at all to make.
Well, squeezing limes isn’t always fun. Why do so many of them have so little juice?
But it is the fresh lime flavor that really makes a Margarita special.
Some salty chips and salsa or Texas Caviar would go perfectly with a Coconut Margarita.
