This Coconut Lime Margarita is one of my all-time favorite drinks and a perfect way to celebrate my 100th post!!! 🥳 This drink is perfect for a warm summer day outside, but I also make them in the winter when I want to dream about sunshine. This cocktail is really easy to make and since the tequila already has coconut in it, there are limited ingredients.

How to make a Coconut Margarita

- Add a lime wedge for garnish, serve, and enjoy!
What does 1800 Coconut Tequila Taste Like?
Coconut Tequila made by 1800 is very coconutty and much sweeter than a traditional tequila. Because of this, it mixes well with citrus as well as other fruit like in my Frozen Strawberry Coconut Margarita. Since this tequila is sweet, you won’t need to add as much sweetener, in this case, agave syrup, as you would in other tequila drinks. It is also delicious served by itself over ice.
You Can Toast Coconut In The Microwave!
Did you know you can toast coconut in the microwave?? This is by far my favorite way to toast coconut. All you do is place sweetened coconut on a microwave-safe plate and cook for 1 minute in the microwave. Remove the plate from the microwave and stir the coconut around. Put the plate back into the microwave for 20-30 second intervals, stirring after each time to even out cooking. This will take about 4-5 minutes total. Store any leftover coconut in an airtight container.
How to make this Coconut Lime Margarita Creamy
If you want even more coconut flavor and a creamy margarita, add 1 oz of coconut cream or coconut milk to your cocktail shaker before shaking. This adds an additional layer of coconut flavor as well as a creaminess that is quite delicious.

How to Tone Down the Coconut Tequila
I love coconut…A LOT. And although a lot of people enjoy coconut, they may think this coconut tequila is too “coconutty”. If you think that might be you, substitute 1 oz. of coconut tequila for 1 oz. of your favorite silver tequila. You still get a delicious coconut flavor with a nice balance of traditional tequila and lime. Another option is to top off this coconut cocktail with seltzer water or tonic to add some bubbles and tone down the coconut.
