Happy Cinco De Mayo, Coconut Margarita recipe

Happy Cinco De Mayo

We are so excited to wish you a Happy Cinco De Mayo- aka let’s sip on a coconut margarita together?? I made this recipe awhile back on the blog and have literally dreamed about these margaritas since then, I figured that made it worthy for a repeat…enjoy!

 I love my coconuts. Seriously, if a menu reads “coconut” somewhere on it there is a really good chance I am ordering that item. Coconut curry, coconut chips, coconut water, macarons, and coconut MaRgArItAs!!! HeyyyyYYY! I must say that I have seen more coconut things trending lately. So with that I am feeling a bit inspired today, meet my coconut margarita recipe….


  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 shots tequila (4.5 oz)
  • 1 can cream of coconut
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 1 cup coconut water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a rimmed baking sheet, toss coconut with the salt. Spread on sheet; toast in oven, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Let cool, then crush with your hands until crumbly.

  2. Place ice, coconut cream, coconut water, tequila, simple syrup in blender and puree until smooth

  3. Dunk edges of glass in simple syrup and then roll edges in toasted coconut, pour in glass and enjoy!!


Got all your yummy ingredients?


Add all ingredients into blender….




Time to get all snazzy with your toasted coconut…


Ok are you ready for some SERIOUS YUM? I made this drink and immediately have been craving it ever since, as I write this post I wish I had one in my hand. First world problems.


Now it’s time to get your hostess on!!


Cheers Brookie!!
