We love classic cocktails like the margarita, but sometimes we need to spice things up a bit and take one of those classics and shape them like Michelangelo shaped marble into something a bit more interesting. I give you the Tikirita, it combines some of the best ingredients of the margarita with some tiki staples to give you a cocktail that's as good on a beach in Hawaii as it is on your porch after a long summers day.

It takes your classic ingredients of a margarita, tequila, lime and salt, and combine them with some of your typical tiki drink ingredients to give you one awesome twist on the classic margarita.
