We love margaritas, so any reason to experiment with a new method for making them is reason enough for us to just get in the kitchen—that’s how we came about this ‘so-tasty-they’re-dangerous’ coconut lime margarita recipe!
Getting down to business: While researching coconut-flavored ingredients to include in this recipe, it came down to coconut milk versus coconut-flavored syrup. While we never like to say ‘never,’ a milky margarita just isn’t our thing. Therefore, we opted for the flavored syrup.
From there, it’s just a matter of tossing your ingredients into a blender with ice then pushing a button—now that’s what we call happy hour! But let us caution you: Our coconut lime margaritas are remarkably tasty, so don’t let these delicious little devils creep up on you! And don’t be afraid to park it on a friend’s couch for the night if they do.

- Combine coconut syrup, tequila, lime juice and triple sec in a blender with ice. Pulse until you achieve the desired consistency.

We used triple sec in this recipe, but any orange-flavored liquor will do!
