Bon Weekend, Plus Couture Cocktails

The weekend is here… at last.  I hope you had a great week!  Unfortunately, a stomach flu has circulated around my family for over a week and put a bit of a halt on our summer fun; however, we plan to make up for it this weekend and next week with a  visit to my parent’s lake house and spending time with family and friends.
 
 
Couture Cocktails
 
How perfect is this on a hot day?  I’m a big fan of coconut in the summer… summer only.  For me, it’s one of those ingredients that I only want in certain seasons.  For instance, I drink red wine in the fall and winter, and white wine in the spring and summer.  Does anyone else do this? 
I love the mix of coconut, lime, and orange flavours in this recipe and I think you will too.
 
Coconut Creamsicle Margarita 
 

  

Ingredients:

2 ounces grand marnier
2 ounces orange juice
1 1/2 ounces silver tequila
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce coconut water
1 ounce canned light coconut milk
1 ounce simple syrup
unsweetened shredded + toasted coconut for glass rims
orange + lime slices for serving
 

Directions:

To rim glasses, fill a plate with coconut. Rub honey or left over frosting on the rim – anything sticky that the coconut will stick too – then place on the plate to coat with coconut. Fill glass with ice.
Combine all grand marnier, orange juice, tequila, lime juice, coconut water, coconut milk and simple syrup in a shaker and shake well for 30 seconds. Pour over ice and garnish with wedges of orange and limes. Makes one serving but can be multiplied.  Cheers!

 
I hope it’s beautiful where you are!
 
xoxo, B
