Prepare a cocktail glass by rimming the top with agave syrup and then dipping it into the toasted coconut. Add fresh ice to the glass and set it aside.
Add the tequila, lime juice, and agave syrup ingredients to a shaker with ice. Shake until nice and cold, about 20-30 seconds, and pour into the prepared glass. Add a lime wedge for garnish, serve and enjoy!
How to 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 the cooking. This will take about 4-5 minutes total. Store any leftover coconut in an airtight container.
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.
