Coconut Creamsicle Margaritas

Happy #TuesdayBoozeday! One of my friends is planning a Margarita-themed party in a few weeks and asked me to help her come up with some creative variations on this classic drink. I recently found a recipe on Pinterest for Coconut Creamsicle Margaritas from the blog, How Sweet It Is, and decided to test out the recipe today. I not only discovered a great Margarita recipe, I also found a new food blog to follow.

Made with Grand Marnier, orange juice, silver tequila, lime juice, coconut water, canned light coconut milk, simple syrup and unsweetened toasted coconut for the glass rim, this is a refreshing cocktail that will remind you of a Creamsicle. What I love most about this cocktail is that it is not overly sweet and is meant to be sipped on. With Cinco de Mayo less than a month away, this would make a great addition to your menu. Pair this with fish tacos and spicy Mexican dishes.

The toasted coconut adds a nice touch and you will find yourself wanting to lick the rim of the glass.
