Our perfectly blended white Christmas margarita combines cream of coconut and silver tequila to create a creamy seasonal cocktail!
Seasonal drinks are a big thing in our kitchen. About a week ago, we shared an eggnog martini. We also have Thanksgiving drinks like a pumpkin martini and Valentine’s cocktails like our raspberry martini.
Today, Kim has prepared a special holiday margarita that I’m sure you’ll adore. It an icy twist on a Summertime favorite made with the flavors of coconut and lime.
When it’s properly garnished with lime and cranberries, the drink is both eye catching and delicious.
How to make a white Christmas margarita:
First, start by rimming the glasses with lime wedges. Afterward, sprinkle the sanding sugar onto a plate.
Next, dip the rim of each glass into the sugar and then set the glasses aside. After that, place your countertop blender on a sturdy surface. Pour in the cream of coconut.
Now, add about 7 to 8 cups of ice. Measure out and add the silver tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and chilled simple syrup.
If you want to make your own syrup in advance, then check out our homemade simple syrup recipe.
Then, pulse the blender until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
Last, pour about 1 cup of the Christmas margarita mix into each glass. Garnish with a lime wedge and a few fresh cranberries.
Serve immediately and enjoy responsibly! That’s it, your white Christmas margaritas are done! Kim and I wish you all the best this holiday season 🙂
White Christmas Margarita Recipe Tips:
- I don’t recommend making these Winter margaritas in advance. Once the ice starts to melt, they may separate.
- Rimming the glasses is an optional step, so don’t feel like you have to do it.
- Don’t buy cheap tequila. It’s a liquor that can be harsh to some people; especially, if it’s bottom shelf.

Place all the ingredients into a high powered blender. Blend just until the ice is broken down and smooth. Pour the margaritas into individual glasses, and garnish with lime slices and fresh cranberries.
