There is just something about margaritas that basically turns me into this emoji 😍. Perhaps it’s summer, perhaps it’s the lime-flavor love or perhaps it’s just that they’re pretty amazing overall.

I’m thinking it’s a combination of all of the above…

I always get excited when I crack open the cocktail menu at any given restaurant (for many obvious reasons) and see a long list of specialty margaritas. I’ll read all the delicious sounding ingredients mixed together in what sounds like an amazing burst of flavor, and yet, I never venture out to try those tasty sounding concoctions.

You may be surprised to know, given that I post mainly about food, some of my favorite foods are indeed pretty plain. Very, very, plain. I’m the girl who prefers vanilla ice cream and when at Magnolia Bakery or other such cupcake eateries I’ll take the vanilla cupcake with the, you guessed it, vanilla icing. This favoritism isn’t limited to just desserts though because I love simple grilled salmon or plain scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast. There is nothing wrong just plain ole pasta and sauce! When it comes to my margaritas, yep, I like them classic.

I love food simplicity!

So how can this be that I own a food blog and am about as vanilla (pun intended) as it gets when it comes to my food choices? In short, the recipes on this site push me beyond my limits and I’m so glad it does. Hello, Pineapple Coconut Margarita! I get the opportunity to try something new and then share it with you. As a food simpleton I’ve tested it out and if I’m sending it to you it has far surpassed my taste test.

This drink, this pineapple coconut margarita madness goes beyond my expectations for a great margarita. It’s kinda of like a pina colada and a margarita got together and the result is a tangy and sweet summer refresher. It’s the perfect summer sipper for those endless summer nights that we can start enjoying, oh, now, or rather continue to enjoy.

Just holding the glass alone will cool you down so you’re really already ahead before you even take your first sip. So friends, sip away because I can assure you this is one you’ll be pleasantly pleased with.

Description

This Pineapple Coconut Margarita is a summery twist on the classic cocktail, which is perfect for sipping when you want to be transported to the beach.


Ingredients

  • 2 ounces Tequila
  • 2 ounces Pineapple Juice
  • 1 ounce Coconut Milk (canned or from a carton)
  • 2 teaspoons Simple Syrup (recipe in notes, agave will also work)
  • 1/2 medium Lime (juiced)
  • 2 leaves Mint
  • Coarse Salt (for glass rim)

Instructions

  1. Place the Tequila, Pineapple Juice, Coconut Milk, Simple Syrup, and Lime in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously several times.
  2. Wet the rim of your glass and dip into the Coarse Salt then fill with ice. Pour the contents of the cocktail shaker into your glass and top with fresh Mint.

Notes

You can use agave if you don’t want to prepare the simple syrup, but it’s super easy to make. Heat 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar over medium heat, stirring until sugar completely melts. That’s it!

If you want your mixture to be super smooth pour the ingredients into the blender first THEN place them in the cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake it like you mean it.
