There's nothing better than a good margarita after a long day. The classic cocktail comes in lots of variations, but you know it's a really good one when it incorporates lime and coconut flavor. Lime and coconut are the ultimate duo, with flavors that complement each other perfectly. And with the addition of tequila and triple sec? It doesn't get much better than that. But while the drink is traditionally associated with the warmer months or tropical vacations, you can absolutely enjoy one for the holidays.
This margarita recipe is easy, timeless, and festive. While the flavors of lime, coconut, and orange aren't necessarily festive, the color of the margarita is reminiscent of a snowy winter day. Topped with a lime wedge and fresh cranberries, this margarita tastes as good as it looks. If you're looking for a simple, festive twist on the classic margarita, this recipe can't be beaten.
My margaritas turned out thick, so you may want to start with adding less ice and increase to reach your desired thickness.
