What happened to the simple days where a margarita was tequila, Triple sec, and lime juice? Well, those days are over. The variety of margaritas available today is out of this world. From fruity to spicy, there is a perfect marg for everyone; you just have to hunt it down.

Here are two Margaritas that combine your favorite tequila cocktail with a couple of tropical classics.

Piña Colada Creamsicle Margarita:

  • 2 ounces grand marnier
  • 2 ounces orange juice
  • 1 1/2 ounces silver tequila
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 1 ounce coconut water
  • 1 ounce canned light coconut milk
  • 1 ounce simple syrup
  • unsweetened shredded + toasted coconut for glass rims
  • orange + lime slices for serving

To rim glasses, fill a plate with coconut. Rub honey or left over frosting on the rim – anything sticky that the coconut will stick too – then place on the plate to coat with coconut. Fill glass with ice. Combine all grand Marnier, orange juice, tequila, lime juice, coconut water, coconut milk and simple syrup in a shaker and shake well for 30 seconds. Pour over ice and garnish with wedges of orange and limes. Drink!
