Cinco De Mayo is just around the corners so what is better than a good Margarita recipe?! In college I loved a good margarita. Mostly frozen ones. I remember my girlfriends and I making them on many many occasions. These days, I would much prefer a nice on the rocks Margarita with a top shelf tequila. The kinds I couldn’t afford in my college days. With warmer weather here and summer just weeks away I wanted to create a little bit healthier ( I didn’t say it was healthy, just healthier) that would be a great summer go to for those Taco Tuesdays, or get togethers with friends.
I have been super obsessed with pineapple coconut water lately. Lets be honest, I am just obsessed with all things Pineapple period, enough said. I cant seem to like drinking regular coconut water, so when I saw this I knew I had to try it. It was love at first sip. When I wanted a new margarita recipe I knew I wanted to use it in this! However you could totally use regular coconut water as well, I don’t think it would change the taste. So here is what you need.
1 bottle 16 oz bottle of Coconut water
1 Cup Orange Juice ( I used pulp free Simply orange)
1 cup water
1 Cup fresh squeezed lime juice
1.5 cups of a white tequila ( I used 1800 Silver)
1/2 cup of Triple Sec
Agave to taste
Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher and let it chill. To be honest the longer it sits the better it gets. This recipe can easily be doubled for a larger party size pitcher but it made about 6- 80z servings. Rim you glass with salt and fill with ice. Pour in the margarita and enjoy!
