2 Essential Margaritas: Lite Coconut + Watermelon

Discover the story
Because who doesn't love a good margarita?!

It’s no secret that a good margarita is the cocktail of choice for the team here at WOT —  And while we love a classic margarita, we are always game to switch it up every once in a while and try something new.

This week in the WOT Test Kitchen we came up with two extremely delicious recipes (trust us, we tested them…twice): Lite Coconut Margarita and a fresh Watermelon Margarita.

Each recipe incorporates fresh fruit and flavors without being too sweet or overpowering. So if you are looking to try something a little different from the classic recipe we all love, we suggest you give these a try.

Lite Coconut Margarita

Servings 2

Ingredients

  • 4 oz lite coconut milk (we used canned organic)
  • 3 oz tequila (blanco works well)
  • 1 oz triplesec
  • 8 oz coconut water (we used coconut water with pulp)
  • mint and lime slices for garnish

Instructions

  • In a large shaker filled with ice, combine the coconut milk, tequila, triple sec, and coconut water.
  • Shake in a shaker for about 30 seconds or until well combined.
  • Pour into salt rimmed glasses filled with ice.
  • Garnish with mint and lime slices or wedges.
  • Serve immediately.
To Rim Your Glass with Salt
  • If you are going to rim your glass with salt, use a sliced lime wedge to go around the rim of the glass and then tap the upside-down glass into the coarse salt. This can be done ahead of time.
If you want to pre-make the coconut margarita, combine the coconut milk, tequila, triple sec, and coconut water in a pitcher and place in the fridge until your ready to serve. Give the pitcher a good stir and then pour the mixture over your ice-filled salt-rimmed glasses.
