Coconut MargaritaPosted: July 30, 2015
I added a little cream of coconut to a Margarita and fell in love with the results. OMG, why have I not done this sooner?
Margaritas are notoriously high in calories. Some can go as high as 600 calories per drink. Yikes! Triple sec and cream of coconut can add a lot of calories to a drink. By using only a small amount of triple sec and cream of coconut and by not adding sugar (or using a drink mix…which I would never do anyways), I was able to get this Coconut Margarita to come in at 172 calories.
1 1/2 ounces tequila
1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) triple sec
1 heaping teaspoon cream of coconut (like Coco Lopez)
juice of 1/2 lime
Shake ingredients together with ice in a cocktail shaker. Strain into a glass and serve with a wedge of lime.
