Move Over, Eggnog — These White Christmas Holiday Margaritas Are a New Festive Favourite

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 flavour. Lime and coconut are the ultimate duo, with flavours 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 holidays, you can absolutely enjoy one for the holidays.

This margarita recipe is easy, timeless, and festive. While the flavours of lime, coconut, and orange aren't necessarily festive, the colour 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.


White Christmas Margarita



My margaritas turned out thick, so you may want to start with adding less ice and increase to reach your desired thickness.
