This is for all you out that there that aren’t quite ready to say goodbye to the weekend. To all those out there that had an ‘all work-no play’ type weekend. And even if you had an all play weekend, this is for you too. Because there is always a good occasion for a margarita? Amiright?
If you have followed along for some time, you know I am a margarita lover through and through. As soon as the temperatures start to rise, limes will be cut, and tequila with a splash triple sec will be poured into a lightly salted rim.
Most coconut cocktails are made with cream of Coconut, which gives your drink an ultra creamy texture but also contributes a handful of calories and fat. Don’t get me wrong, there is a time and place to indulge but I like to save that dessert like cocktails for vacations. To cut the calories and fat but maintaining the true coconut flavor, I used light coconut milk and coconut water. To yields the tropical flavor we are looking for but making it light enough I don’t mind asking for a second.
I prefer to use tequila blanco for my margaritas with a splash of triple sec for an extra oomph. Triple sec is an orange flavored liquor and in my opinion is essential for an authentic margarita. Finish off the drink with a fresh squeezed lime and you are all set!
