Toasted Coconut Margarita

I love this toasted coconut margarita! This recipe is one very close to my heart, because it serves as the perfect complement to taco Tuesday! When I lived in Boston, my favorite restaurant had a very similar margarita to the one I have now recreated. My friends and I would always order this coconut margarita, and let me tell you it tastes like Christmas (without the family drama). The coconut crème mellows the tequila beautifully, while the sharp lime balances whatever delicious Mexican fiesta you are destined to whip up. Go the extra mile and rim each glass with toasted coconut and you have yourself an award-winning margarita. Now put the lime in the coconut margarita and take yourself a sip.

Nikki’s Notes:

  • Use unsweetened coconut flakes! The margarita is already sweet enough!
  • Use a clean non stick pan to toast your coconut and watch carefully, it should only take a few minutes to achieve that beautiful golden brown!
  • Water down the honey to rim your glass so you do not get a punch of syrupy honey when taking a sip!
