Your New Favorite Margarita: The Winter Wonderland Margarita

Elevate your happy hour this season with the Winter Wonderland Margarita! This creamy cocktail mixes together fun and festive ingredients like Cenote Tequila, orange liqueur, coconut milk, lime juice, and a delicious homemade gingerbread syrup for a smooth and seasonal margarita.

Shake Up Your Cocktails with Cenote Tequila

Delicious cocktails start with premium spirits and Cenote Tequila embodies the purest tequila that levels up any cocktail. It’s made with ultra-pure volcanic mineral water and filtered through proprietary activated coconut charcoal filters before bottling, which allows the true flavors of the hand-picked agave to really shine through. This tequila boasts a complex flavor profile that balances fragrant cooked agave with delicate earthy notes making it the perfect spirit to mix with since it balances beautifully with fresh and bright notes. 

Cenote Tequila is inspired by the beauty of the Yucatán Peninsula located in Mexico. The cenotes are spectacular underground water systems found throughout the region.

Ingredients for the Winter Wonderland Margarita

  • Cenote Tequila Blanco: This premium 100% agave tequila is packed with bright citrus and pepper on the nose taking your sipping experience to a deeper, more joyful level. Continuous flavor of rich, cooked agave, spices, subtle wood, and green vegetables, are a result of mellowing the spirit in American Oak barrels for three weeks. 
  • Orange liqueur: For this recipe, use an orange liqueur like triple sec.
  • Canned coconut milk: Use your preferred brand of canned coconut milk or cream of coconut. Cream of coconut has added sugar, so will result in a sweeter cocktail. 
  • Lime juice: Fresh squeezed lime juice is best, but bottled lime juice will work if fresh isn’t available.
  • Sugar: Granulated sugar is the base of the gingerbread syrup and is used to rim your cocktail glass. Alternatively, you can use brown sugar or honey to make the gingerbread syrup.
  • Gingerbread spice tea bags: Gingerbread spice tea bags make the gingerbread syrup super easy to make. Look for an herbal tea bag with ginger, cinnamon, and spices.
  • Cinnamon: Use ground cinnamon for the cinnamon sugar rim for your cocktail glass.
  • Gingerbread house cookie & rosemary: Optionally, garnish this creamy margarita with a fun gingerbread house cookie and a sprig of rosemary.

How to Make the Winter Wonderland Margarita

Let’s make the Winter Wonderland Margarita! Start by making the gingerbread syrup. It can be made in advance and refrigerated until ready to use. To make the homemade gingerbread syrup, add the sugar and water to a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, while stirring occasionally to dissolve the sugar. Remove from the heat and add in your gingerbread spice tea bags. Steep for 5 minutes and remove tea bags. Allow to cool then store in an airtight container.

Now you’re ready to make the cocktail! Start by preparing your cocktail glass with a cinnamon sugar rim. Add sugar and cinnamon to a small shallow dish and stir to combine. Use a lime slice to coat the rim of the cocktail glass. Then submerge it in the cinnamon sugar mixture until coated. Next, add Cenote Tequila Blanco, orange liqueur, coconut milk, lime juice, and the homemade gingerbread syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until chilled and strain the cocktail mixture into the prepared cocktail glass over ice. If desired, garnish with a gingerbread house cookie, rosemary sprig and star anise.
