{Cocktail Friday} Coconut Creamsicle Margarita

2013 May 10

Cinco de Mayo was last weekend and by now I should have clearly had my fill of margaritas but it turns out I haven’t. Feast your eyes on the Coconut Creamsicle Margarita by How Sweet It Is….everyone take a moment. Alright, enough of your “ooh-ing and ah-ing” go make one this weekend and let me know what you think! It might be a fun way to stir up your Mother’s Day celebration. Happy Mother’s Day!

    Could you make this with the coconut milk in the carton, or does it have to be canned?

    Made these tonight and they were yummy!! Any advice for preventing the coconut milk from curdling because of the citrus in the drink? I’ve had other delicious cocktails with the same problem. It doesn’t take away from the great taste, just wondering if there’s any way to avoid it? Thanks for sharing your fantastic recipe!!
