This tropical and sweet coconut pineapple margarita will transport you right to vacation. This cocktail is loaded with fresh pineapple juice, coconut cream, fresh lime juice, and good tequila!


Units Scale
  1. 1/2 ounce agave
  2. 1/2 ounce lime juice
  3. 1 ounce stained cream of coconut
  4. 4 ounces pineapple juice
  5. 2 ounces tequila


  1. Start by toasting the shaved coconut by heating it in a saucepan on medium heat until lightly browned. Rim your margarita glass in agave, and then dip it into the toasted coconut.
  2. Then add the tequila, lime juice, agave, and pineapple juice to a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

  • Use agave to rim your glass to ensure that the coconut sticks. 
  • If you want even more spice, you can rim the edge of the glass with tajín!
  • Really shake your margarita in the cocktail shaker to get a nice foam top.
