Coconut Mint Margarita

My coconut-themed week is coming to an end, but not without a coconut mint margarita cocktail recipe to finish things off on a happy note! If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll know I rarely drink tequila. In fact, I haven’t made a tequila recipe since August 2017 when I tried a recipe for Roasted Blueberry Basil Margaritas, but this recipe sounded way too good not to try. So it’s off to the liquor store to pick up a bottle of tequila, along with a trip to the grocery store for the rest of the ingredients. Let’s hope I still have those margarita glasses in the cabinet above the refrigerator! You know the one we all have but only go into once a year or less.

The Ingredients

Everything I needed for this coconut mint margarita cocktail was easy to find. Yes, the tequila was about $40, but it’s the good stuff. And it’s not like this recipe uses anywhere near the whole bottle, so I have plenty leftover.

I couldn’t find coconut sorbet, but I was able to find coconut gelato. And the container was 16 ounces, exactly the amount this recipe calls for. Not that I would have been in any way upset or inconvenienced if I had some leftover, but I love the fact that I didn’t have to measure.

The Process

Now this recipe did take me a little longer than the average cocktail, but there is a little more to it than just measuring the ingredients. The recipe is divided into 3 sections that are easy to follow, and I had my margarita mixed and garnished in 8 minutes. I used a generously sized margarita glass to serve, and I got just over 2 servings from this recipe.

Rimming the glass with coconut and sugar is just delicious, but I found it difficult to get the coconut to stick. I wasn’t too upset about that once I tried my first sip, though. The gelato gave the drink more than enough of a coconut taste. If it’s important to you to have the coconut stick to the glass, I would suggest chopping it into fine pieces before adding it to the mint-sugar mixture.

Finally, I used my mini-prep to mix my coconut mint margarita instead of a full-sized blender, although either would work fine. I find the smaller appliance more convenient, but that’s just a personal preference.

So how was it?

Clear & Accurate Directions
I do like a margarita, but I loved this coconut mint margarita recipe! Lime, coconut, mint, and tequila are a match made in heaven. This cocktail is sweet and tangy with a touch of mint. The taste of the tequila doesn't get lost, though, but this cocktail is very easy to sip quickly, so be warned. It's also easy to make and garnish, so don't let the seemingly long instructions fool you. The author guides you to a beautifully garnished cocktail in a matter of minutes.
