It’s time for a new White Christmas cocktail! Sip on these White Cranberry Margaritas this holiday season and enjoy a smooth blend of coconut, cranberry and tequila. It’s the perfect blend of summer and winter into my new favorite holiday cocktail!
Surprise your guests with a Christmas Margarita They’ll Love!
Many people think margaritas are only for summer, but I think seasonal margaritas can be enjoyed all year long! Especially if you find a perfect pairing like like white cranberry and coconut. I have been on a real margarita kick lately, but this Christmas margarita is definitely my new favorite cocktail recipe. No joke!
With coconut rum and coconut milk added to the traditional tequila, orange liqueur and lime juice, this coconut margarita base is light and creamy. Bryan says it makes him think of our cruise a couple years ago! The coconut flavor is subtle, which is why I love it. Consider adding a little extra coconut extract if you are looking for a stronger coconut flavor.
Now, add in the white cranberry juice to get a slightly sweeter cocktail than my cranberry margarita recipe. White cranberries are harvested a few weeks earlier, and I think it results in a juice that’s just a little bit sweeter and smoother. I can usually only drink two cranberry cocktails before I’m left with a slightly dry mouth. Just me? I don’t have that problem with white cranberry juice.
If you have a hard time finding the white cranberry juice at all, I suggest looking at Walmart. Finding it in other stores often depends on season and location, but Walmart always seems to have it in stock. In addition, you can definitely make this cocktail using regular cranberry juice. I would just suggest potentially adding a little more simple syrup into the mix.
