Coconut Margaritas

Recipe by  

"Setting out to duplicate the coconut margaritas we had in Costa Rica, my first attempt was awful! I surfed the internet for a good recipe with little luck. I then took what I'd learned from my first nasty try and the ideas I picked up online and after about 5 or 6 attempts I came up with this. Enjoy!"

I loved this margarita with two small changes. I added 1 1/2 oz lime juice to the mix. Then I mixed 1/8 tsp salt into the shredded coconut and toasted it in the oven and crumbled it before rimming the glasses with it (which I dipped in extra lime juice first). The house smells heavenly while your toasting the coconut, but be sure to watch it carefully. Must try!

I was disappointed in this recipe. The flavors did not mix well together. We ended up adding some agave nectar to make it a little sweeter, and that helped some, but still was not great.

Coconut margaritas are my new favorite drink!!!! I added the lime mixture as well, really need that hint of sour! There is a reason they wrote the song "put the lime in the coconut....make it feel better!" Also served it on the rocks, not blended!!! Excellent !

Of course I have to give it 5 stars - it's my recipe. One hint, don't overpoor the tequila as you can very easily make the drink too bitter. If you do then just dash in a little extra Triple-Sec and a spoonful or so of extra coconut cream.

This recipe is fabulous - like a Pina Colada made with Tequila instead of Rum. I add about 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk to the recipe to cut back on the sweetness and the strength - makes it a bit more coconutty too!

This is an excellent drink. I did add 1 1/2 oz. of lime juice, so I don't know how it tastes without it...but I highly recommend adding it. Also served on the rocks from a pitcher rather than blending.

I also added some frozen fruit; a few strawberries, mango chunks or peach slices. Tastes great.

Delicious Drink! Just what were looking for when we were tired of margaritas and didn't exactly want a pina colada...we did however add the lime juice like others suggested. Excellent!
