Margaritas aren’t just a cocktail for the warmer months, in fact, if there’s one cocktail that I love to sip on year-round, it’s a marg! The Creamy Coconut Margarita is an ode to one of my favorite margaritas but with a festive touch. Plus, it gave me an excuse to incorporate a special ingredient!
Do you love margs? Let’s make a festive one! The best way to make your margarita festive for the holidays is to use fresh and seasonal ingredients like pumpkin puree, apple cider, and cranberry juice alongside seasonal herbs and produce. Examples of seasonal produce and herbs to use for fall and winter cocktails include:
For this recipe, I used only four ingredients to create one of my favorite margaritas. It’s the perfect balance of sweet, tart, and creaminess for a tropical cocktail with a festive touch. See what I used below and some recommendations for this cocktail recipe.
For a great mix that brings a lot of flavor, I love using Island Oasis Mixes. They have a range of products that you can use for your cocktails like Strawberry, Mango, and Watermelon Mint, and the best part? It’s made with the realest and freshest ingredients, like real pineapple and real coconut juice. The Piña Colada Mix provides a hint of pineapple, picked at peak of ripeness and creamy coconut that will transport your taste buds.
Simply shake up your Island Oasis carton, add your other ingredients, and mix it up or blend it together. You can even use their products in mocktails or smoothies. Check out some more of Island Oasis’s recipes and try them at home for the holidays this year.
Making the Creamy Coconut Margarita could not be any simpler. Thanks to Island Oasis for creating delicious ready-to-use mixes, this cocktail can be crafted in under 10 minutes! Once you’ve gathered your ingredients – Island Oasis Pina Colada Mix, toasted coconut, tequila, lime juice, and the cranberries, mint sprig, plus a lime slice for your garnishes, then the magic begins!
Get your cocktail glass ready by rimming it with the toasted coconut. You can do this by using a lime wedge around the rim and then dipping it in the shallow dish of toasted coconut. You can also use honey or agave syrup in lieu of the lime wedge.
Then, add your Island Oasis Pina Colada Mix, tequila, and lime juice to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously. Strain your mixture into your prepared glass with fresh ice. Last step is your garnish. Add fresh cranberries, a mint sprig, and lime wheel or wedge and top the cocktail with it.
