Coconut Water Margaritas

 

 

 

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!

  1. I LOVE the idea of coconut water margaritas! May is such a perfect time for margaritas 🙂 I make a mango habanero margarita that I may try coconut water with as well.

  2. This sounds INCREDIBLE, pinning it for later. I may actually go out and get the ingredients to make it this weekend. Sounds super tasty & very refreshing. Love that you can make a whole pitcher too 🙂

  3. Coconut water margaritas sound so light and yummy! These are perfect for a tropical drink on a hot day. They look delicious.
