Margaritas are always a good idea… but let’s make it festive. This winter margarita is such a treat and perfect for your holiday gatherings.
I absolutely love hosting for the holidays. It brings me so much joy. I’m currently plotting how I can throw together a last minute Friendsmas as an excuse to gather with friends and family. It really makes me so happy. And of course we have to bring ALL the vibes this holiday season with cocktails and mocktails to enjoy.
This festive libation is such a treat. If you love tequila and coconut this one’s for you. It gives summer time vibes in the winter and I’m here for it!
What you’ll need
tequila – tequila silver/ blanco is best for this recipe
coconut cream– I like the thickness of coconut cream. but you can also use coconut milk.
white cranberry juice– keeps the “white” aesthetic while adding a subtle seasonal sweetness.
orange liqueur– orange liqueur is a must for a quality margarita.
lime-Fresh is best. If it’s not fresh, I don’t want it!
honey + coconut flakes– use honey and coconut flakes to rim your glass. you can also use honey to add sweetness to the cocktail if needed.
rosemary sprig– for the perfect garnish.
frosted cranberries or pomegranate– adds a beautiful pop of color. giving it the perfect festive vibe.
