Setting out to duplicate the coconut margaritas we had in Costa Rica, my first attempt was awful! I surfed the internet for a good recipe with little luck. I then took what I'd learned from my first nasty try and the ideas I picked up online and after about 5 or 6 attempts I came up with this. Enjoy!

I loved this margarita with two small changes. I added 1 1/2 oz lime juice to the mix. Then I mixed 1/8 tsp salt into the shredded coconut and toasted it in the oven and crumbled it before rimming the glasses with it (which I dipped in extra lime juice first). The house smells heavenly while your toasting the coconut but be sure to watch it carefully. Must try! Read More

I was disappointed in this recipe. The flavors did not mix well together. We ended up adding some agave nectar to make it a little sweeter and that helped some but still was not great. Read More

Coconut margaritas are my new favorite drink!!!! I added the lime mixture as well really need that hint of sour! There is a reason they wrote the song "put the lime in the coconut....make it feel better!" Also served it on the rocks not blended!!! Excellent! Read More

Of course I have to give it 5 stars - it's my recipe. One hint don't overpoor the tequila as you can very easily make the drink too bitter. If you do then just dash in a little extra Triple-Sec and a spoonful or so of extra coconut cream. Read More

This recipe is fabulous - like a Pina Colada made with Tequila instead of Rum. I add about 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk to the recipe to cut back on the sweetness and the strength - makes it a bit more coconutty too! Read More

This is an excellent drink. I did add 1 1/2 oz. of lime juice so I don't know how it tastes without it...but I highly recommend adding it. Also served on the rocks from a pitcher rather than blending. Read More

I think I have found a new favorite drink. I followed the previous reviews and added 1 1/2 ounces of lime juice as well as a "splash" of lemon lime soda. This will get made often this summer! Thank you for sharing. Read More
