White Christmas Margarita

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.

White Christmas margaritas served in cocktail glasses.

How to make a White Christmas Margarita:

  1. Start by running a lime wedge around the rim of the glasses.
  2. Pour sanding sugar into a shallow dish, and dip each glass into the sanding sugar. Set aside.
  3. Add 7-8 cups of ice to a blender.
  4. Pour in silver tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and chilled simple syrup.
  5. Process until smooth and no ice chunks remain.
  6. Pour the margaritas into prepared glasses, garnish with lime wedges and fresh cranberries, and enjoy immediately.

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.
