A great recipe for a Christmas cocktail and a collage. The recipe I’ve found on howsweeteats.
White christmas margaritas
10 ounces silver tequila
8 ounces grand marnier
8 ounces lime juice
8 ounces coconut water
8 ounces canned coconut milk
6 ounces coconut cream
6 ounces coconut rum
6 ounces simple syrup
1 teaspoon coconut extract, if desired
for garnish: sprigs of rosemary and fresh cranberries
Mix all ingredients together well – I find that for a large scale drink like this with something creamy (the coconut), it works best to make it in a large measuring glass or bowl and whisk it all together as opposed to shaking it. If desired, you can add 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut extract for more islandy coconut flavor! Taste and add more syrup if you’d like more sweetness.
Note: to make the simple syrup, combined equal parts sugar and water (like 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water) in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil, then remove from heat and let cool completely.
