White Christmas Margarita Punch.
No need to dream of your white Christmas today.
I’ve got it in a glass!
Merry Christmas you filthy animal.
I’m being forced to create our own white Christmas.
Because it’s crazy warm here, as in yesterday it felt like it was 70 degrees. And all I want is snow. Because I don’t want to be knee deep in ice come April! I’m selfish and want snow now, and no snow come January 1. Universe… are you listening?
These margaritas are certainly deceiving – while there are a few floating cranberries and some rosemary for decoration, they are actually… COCONUT cream margaritas. So you can be transported to the islands for Christmas!
No but really, I didn’t want to do a white chocolate margarita or a sugar cookie margarita or something like that. It kind of made my stomach turn. I have used this coconut margarita recipe in the past, and knew it would fit the perfect white Christmas bill. It’s what I used for my red, white and blue margaritas on the 4th of July and it’s a total hit!
The thing is though, you gotta watch your décor.
Like I wouldn’t stir the margarita with the rosemary sprig or anything. In fact, I wouldn’t even drop it in. It’s purely decoration which is unlike something I’d usually do, but it’s so, so pretty and so fun for the holiday season. I couldn’t NOT do it.
So you should totally do it! You’ll totally be in the spirit and if not… just add another drink.
White Christmas Margaritas
- 10 ounces silver tequila
- 8 ounces grand marnier
- 8 ounces lime juice
- 8 ounces coconut water
- 8 ounces canned coconut milk
- 6 ounces coconut cream
- 6 ounces coconut rum
- 6 ounces simple syrup
- 1 teaspoon coconut extract, if desired
- for garnish: sprigs of rosemary and fresh cranberries
- Mix all ingredients together well – I find that for a large scale drink like this with something creamy (the coconut), it works best to make it in a large measuring glass or bowl and whisk it all together as opposed to shaking it. If desired, you can add 1 to 2 teaspoons of coconut extract for more islandy coconut flavor! Taste and add more syrup if you’d like more sweetness.
- Note: to make the simple syrup, combined equal parts sugar and water (like 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water) in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk constantly until the sugar dissolves and the mixture comes to a boil, then remove from heat and let cool completely.

This margarita tastes amazing! The alcohol and coconut milk/cream are separating from each other. Is there something you did to make it all mix together and stay mixed? We are making it for a Christmas party tonight!

This curdled. It was awful since I had made a giant batch for a large party. Also, the taste was odd, lime and coconut for some reason did not mesh well with the Grand Marnier. Also, because of the coconut it was more of a off white color rather than white as shown in the picture. At the end of the day it looked like curdled pee, sadly after a couple of brave adventurers tried a glass or two, it was tossed.
shirly, i’m not sure why it curdled? it definitely should not curdle! and the coconut milk i use is bright white. what kind of coconut milk are you using? when it’s out of the can it should be white!
Mine turned out like this. I used the can of cream of coconut and it is not bright white and curdled. I’m so glad I did a test before Christmas Day because I’m serving a large party as well. I went back to the store to buy real gourmet cream of coconut that I’m hoping it works.
It sounds like your coconut separated. You just needed to blend it up. You could have probably saved the drink by blending it too. Coconut milk doesn’t curdle, the proteins arent present like in cow’s milk for it to happen.
Soooo good! A new Christmas tradition!

Quick question, should I use unsweetened coconut milk or something like Goya coconut milk that is sweet.
I love this pitcher – where can I find it??
