Coconut Chili Margarita

To support the defending NBA champions in finding their team chemistry, I’ve created this tasty drink that I’m pretty sure you’re going to love. This drink features a tropical-themed coconut flavor paired with chili heat and a tequila zing. 

And I will promise you that while it may be booze, by making it yourself, it’s a heck of a lot more wholesome than some gross store-bought mix. Bottoms up!


Coconut Chili Simple Syrup

  1. Place the coconut water in a medium saucepan and heat it over medium-high heat but do not boil. 
  2. Once the liquid is hot, add in the honey and let the honey dissolve, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
  3. Once the honey has dissolved, turn off the heat and add in the habanero peppers. 
  4. Cover and let it steep for 3 hours.
  5. Strain the syrup through a mesh sieve of some form (cheesecloth works) into a bowl, discarding the solids. 
  6. Pour the syrup into a container and let it cool completely in the refrigerator.

Coconut Chili Margarita

  1. In a cocktail shaker combine the lemon and lime juices, the tequila, Triple Sec, syrup, and some crushed ice. 
  2. Shake well until mixed thoroughly and cold.
  3. Rim a margarita glass with coconut sugar (and fill with more crushed ice if that’s how you like your margaritas). 
  4. Pour in the (strained through the cocktail shaker) margarita mixture.
  5. Garnish with a lemon or lime slice and serve!
