I don’t know about you but Cinco de Mayo means time for my favorite cocktail.
Restaurants around here have a long list of margaritas. There are different tequilas and different mixers all ending up in a zingy cocktail. It’s the perfect drink for summer, festivals, parties, happy hour and Cinco de Mayo.
We adopted them from a rescue shelter when they were 6 weeks old. Minnie is feisty with a mind of her own and Moocher is laid-back and affectionate, contrary to what some people in this family think; you know who you are!
That's Minnie on the left and Moocher yawning.
This is not the same old margarita ~ the ones with strawberry, lime or banana. This margarita is shaken up a bit with the subtle taste of coconut.
Minnie and Moocher will be diving into a can of tuna while I enjoy a Coconut Margarita. Here’s the recipe:
4 cups ice
4 teaspoons Coco Lopez, Cream of Coconut
8 ounces pineapple juice
4 ounces tequila
8 ounces Sweet & Sour mix
2 ounces Triple Sec or other orange liqueur
Sugar or toasted coconut
Place ice in blender and add remaining ingredients except for lime wedges ans sugar.
Blend until slushy.
Add more ice for a thicker margarita.
Rub rims of glasses with lime wedges.
Dip rims in sugar or toasted coconut
Sip and enjoy!
Makes about 4 margaritas.
¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo amigos!
¡Feliz cumpleaños Minnie and Moocher!
