White Holiday Margarita

Sip a bit of the tropics this holiday season!  This White Holiday Margarita has the flavors of the islands – coconut, lime, rum.  It’s creamy and refreshing.  It also packs a punch with three types of alcohol.

Here in Florida, we decorate palm trees and Santa has a surfboard.  With the weather still balmy and the beach beckoning, tropical cocktails work all year round and a white holiday margarita is one of my favorites.  It’s sweet, creamy, and fruity.  I love the flavors of the coconut and the rum.

What Do I Need To Make A White Holiday Margarita?

  • Silver tequila or Tequila Blanco – I used Patron because that’s what I had on hand, but use whatever brand you enjoy.
  • Orange liqueur – I used Grand Marnier because I like the flavor of it, but Triple Sec works great as well.
  • Fresh lime juice and orange juice
  • White cranberry juice – This adds a nice cranberry flavor without the pink color.  If you can’t find it, you could use coconut water or just omit it altogether.
  • Canned coconut milk – use full fat for a decadent creamy mouthfeel.
  • Coconut cream – this is usually sold in the mixers aisle of the supermarket.  Coco Lopez is the brand that I use.
  • Coconut rum – I’ve also used spiced rum, which is equally delicious.  Plain rum also works great!
  • Simple syrup – just boil 1 cup water with 1 cup granulated sugar until the sugar dissolves.  Cool and store in a bottle in your refrigerator.
  • Red sanding sugar to rim the glass.
