Ingredients for coconut lime frozen margaritas

  • Cream of coconutThis gives our drink a rich, creamy, coconut flavor.
  • Tequila – The perfect choice for margaritas, this agave-based alcohol is fresh and clean.
  • Triple Sec – Triple sec is an orange-flavored liqueur. 
  • Lime – Lime is bright and fresh and gives a great citrus flavor.
  • Ice – This will give our margarita its thick, slushie-like consistency

What is cream of coconut? 

Cream of coconut is a thick, sweet coconut syrup that can be easily found in the cocktail/alcoholic beverages section of your grocery store.

It is not coconut milk!

For this preparation, coconut milk is not thick enough, nor is it sweet enough.

I do not recommend substituting it. 

Using bottled lime juice

Bottled lime juice is often very one-note: sour. It has lost all of that fresh, citrusy kick. I do not recommend using it in place of fresh lime juice here. 

Different types of tequila

To keep it simple, there are two different kinds of tequila: gold, and silver.

Now, for this coconut lime frozen margarita, I have chosen silver tequila.

Personally, I like this choice because silver tequila has a stronger fresh, clean taste.

That’s because when silver tequila is made, it is bottled immediately and is not aged at all. 

Gold tequila has more of a unique taste, and golden color, from it having been aged in barrels. 

The flavor nuances of gold tequila would be lost in this coconut lime margarita, and I do not suggest substituting the silver tequila for gold.
