Margarita season is finally here! I know, I know it's technically okay to drink a margarita during any time of year, but something about a frozen margarita on a warm day with a side of chips and guac just can't be beat. Tequila-based cocktails always feel innately summery to me. They remind me of Saturday afternoons or long happy hours with lots of nachos.
Along with gin-based cocktails, margaritas find themselves on the top of my favorite cocktails list. And so many flavor options! What more could a girl ask for?
Coconut Pineapple Frozen Margaritas
Makes 2 large or 4 small margs
1 cup pineapple, cubed
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
4 oz tequila
2 cups ice
Optional: toasted coconut, honey, lime slices, and additional pineapple cubes
**If you have a smaller blender or are worried about too much liquid for your blender, half the recipe to make one drink at a time.
In a blender, add pineapple cubes, coconut milk, tequila, and ice. Using a fork, juice the lime into blender. Pulse until the margaritas are slushy and no large chunks appear.
If you want to garnish the glass, spread honey along the rim of the glass and press into toasted coconut. Spoon your margarita into the glasses and garnish with a pineapple cube and lime slice. Enjoy immediately or store in the freezer.
I don't tend to like my drinks too boozey, but if you are looking for a stronger marg, add up to 2 additional ounces of tequila.
