Frosty Coconut Margaritas

This cocktail is reminiscent of a really good pina colada, but with tequila and lime instead of pineapple.

Ingredients
  • About 1 1/2 cups coconut milk ice cubes or regular ice cubes (see Cook's Note)
  • 1/2 cup cream of coconut
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1/2 cup silver tequila or coconut-flavored tequila, if you can find it
  • 1/3 cup orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
  • 1/4 cup coconut soda or seltzer, such as LaCroix
  • 1/4 cup coconut water
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 2 limes, juiced, plus lime wedges, for serving
  • Coarse salt, for rimming the glasses
  • Cherries, for serving
Directions
  • Chill 4 glasses.

  • Combine the coconut milk ice cubes, cream of coconut, simple syrup, tequila, orange liqueur, coconut soda, coconut water, coconut extract and lime juice in a blender and pulse until the ice is crushed and the mixture is combined. It should be super frosty. Add more ice if needed, then taste and add a little extra tequila if desired.

  • Rim the chilled glasses with coarse salt. Divide the coconut mixture among the glasses, and top each with a lime wedge and cherry.

Cook's Note: To make the coconut milk ice cubes, pour 2 cans of light coconut milk into ice cube molds. Freeze overnight before using. They aren't necessary; you can use regular ice cubes if needed.
