White Christmas Margarita Recipe

I am no mixologist, but let me tell you. This White Christmas Margarita Recipe will have you “rockin around the Christmas tree” for sure!

Not only does it look like Christmas in a cup, but it is incredible smooth. (buyer be ware!) 

As I was working on recipes for this Holiday Entertaining Series I really wanted to focus on recipes that could be made in bulk, and Christmas drinks were no different. This White Christmas Margarita Recipe is made in a Pitcher which allows you to be free and mingle instead of mixing drinks. So, let’s get started shall we!?

This easy Christmas Punch for a Crowd is going to be your new go to for the holidays, I know it will be for me! I plan on making a double batch of this stuff for our annual Ugly Sweater Christmas Party! Woohoo!

Ingredients you’ll need to make this White Christmas Margarita:

  • Coconut Milk: You’ll want to get the full-fat coconut milk in a can. It is extra creamy and the real deal!
  • Coconut Water: This is a “lighter” way to add more coconut flavor and not as many calories
  • Tequila: Um, this is a must in Margaritas. I’d recommend the silver tequila because it is lighter in color and won’t turn your margarita a golden color.
  • Grand Marnier: This orange flavored liquor is what gives this margarita a flavorful edge above the rest.
  • Lime Juice: The fresh lime juice cuts through the creaminess of the coconut milk and water and gives you that true margarita flavor!
  • Agave: I use agave in my margarita recipes instead of making a simple syrup. I find it’s lighter and not as sweet.
  • Cranberries & Rosemary Sprigs: This is more for the festive colors, not as much for the taste!

Do You Use Gold or Silver Tequila for Margaritas?

I like to use silver or blanco tequila. It has a smooth taste and is a younger tequila, so it’s only been aged in the oak barrel for 2 years at most. Gold tequila is aged for much longer and has a stronger taste. Not always ideal for margaritas.

What is the Best Tequila for Margaritas?

  1. Patron Silver –  It’s a great place to start when drinking tequila. It is made with agave without being too overwhelming. It’s smooth and definitely a good cocktail mixer.
  2. Hornitos – This is a newer tequila to me. A friend of mine turned me on to it and I really like it. I tend to go with the resposado or the anejo for less agave forward taste.
  3. Don Julio – Hands down, this one is my husbands favorite! It is smooth and won’t leave you with a headache because it’s made well.

How to Make a White Christmas Margarita in a Pitcher?

  1. To a large pitcher add full fat coconut milk, coconut water, grand marnier, silver tequila, lime juice and agave syrup. Using a whisk stir everything together until coconut milk no longer separates.
  2. Serve over ice.
  3. Garnish with fresh cranberries, lime slices and rosemary sprig.

How Long do Homemade Margaritas Last in the Fridge?

Homemade margaritas should last between 2 to 3 weeks in the refrigerator if kept in an air tight container. For this White Christmas Margarita Recipe you will just need to use a whisk to mix the coconut milk back up again as it tends to separate when it sits.

I have legit made this recipe probably 5 times in the past 2 months. Granted I was testing it out the first two times, but still. It is amazing! It’s creamy, smooth, a slight tropical flavor and has a nice zing from the lime juice. Plus it looks like the holidays from the cranberries and rosemary. 

This is one recipe I am seriously so so proud of and cannot wait for you guys to try it! I hope it makes an appearance at your holiday parties! And remember it’s perfect for a crowd because it’s made in a pitcher!

Cheers friends!
