Hey everyone! Just sitting in the salon with tons of foil on my head waiting for the stuff to work its magic. Sweet, huh? I’m off to a Cinco de Mayo party tonight and I wanted to share my new favorite margarita with you.
This is probably my favorite homemade margarita recipe that I’ve done. I was inspired to change it up a bit after going to Anejo last weekend and indulging in a couple chili coconut margaritas (ps if you haven’t been to anejo, you MUST go!)
In a shaker with some ice, add: (makes 2…if you feel like sharing)
-6 oz coconut water
-1.5 oz lime juice
-2 oz triple sec (or other orange liqueur)
-3 oz coconut tequila
NOTE: This isn’t what I would consider to be a coconut margarita. In fact, I don’t think it tastes like coconut at all. But the coconut water and coconut tequila give it that edge that I feel really separates the restaurant quality margs from the ones you make at home with a sugary pre-made mix. If you can’t get your hands on coconut tequila, I don’t think it would make much of a difference, but it is a nice addition.
