A tropical twist to the Margarita from 'Gods Own Country', a cross between a Margarita and a Pina Colada.

Recipe Ingredients

  • Tequila/vodka 1 cup
  • Fresh Lemon juice 1/2 cup
  • Honey 2 tbsp
  • Cointreau 1/4 cup (optional)
  • Ice 1 cup
  • Coconut cream 1 cup (unsweetened)
  • Grated coconut 1/2 cup
  • Salt as required
  • Chilli flakes two pinches

Recipe Preparation

  1. Place a non stick pan on a medium flame. Toss in the grated coconut and dry roast it to a golden brown colour. Spread on a plate to cool.
  2. Choose two cocktail glasses, rub the edges with a slice of lime. Then dip the glasses into a plate of salt and the roasted coconut.
  3. Add the tequila/vodka, lemon juice, Cointreau, honey and ice into a blender and mix well. Pour into the prepared cocktail glasses.
My Tip: A personal twist to this margarita is with the herbal ' Khus' syrup. The glasses are edged with sugar and freshly grated coconut. Garnished with a lemon rind. Its all in the mind. Make you own flavours but tequila and lemon juice is a must.
