The Best Holiday Cocktails: White Margarita
The phrase, “I’m dreaming of a white Christmas”, will take on a new meaning after you make this White Margarita. They seriously resemble snow with a taste of the tropics. In fact, you’ll probably find yourself humming “Margaritaville” as you make them. Sorry, Bing Crosby.
The snowy texture of this White Margarita is achieved through coconut milk blended with ice, and using a silver tequila to keep the pure white color. The density of the blended cocktail can withstand the weight of the cranberries at the top, as if they were just tossed there in the snow. Don’t forget to rim your glass with sugar (I used decorative sugar for more sparkle.)
Enjoy the look on your guests face when you hand them with this unique, frozen concoction. You better buy twice the ingredients, because these fun cocktails will disappear before the first present is passed!
