White Christmas Margarita Punch

White Christmas Margarita Punch

By Timo Torner / Last updated on March 14, 2022 
This white and festive riff on a classic Margarita is a great cocktail to serve during the Christmas holidays. When garnished with rosemary and some cranberries, this cocktail will definitely be the star of the evening.

A traditional Margarita is tangy, refreshing, and salty and features the infamous salt rim on the glass. It is a blend of Tequila, lime juice, Cointreau, and sometimes simple syrup. But this white and creamy Christmas Margarita is an entirely different take on the classic.

Coconut cream, coconut milk, and a splash of Coconut Rum make the White Christmas Margarita Punch a very tropical festive cocktail. The result is a rich and creamy Tequila drink that undoubtedly looks stunning. The cranberries and the rosemary sprig make a significant impression but are just the supporting act for garnish. -The real star and the main ingredient of this festive Tequila cocktail is, however, coconut. Coconut Rum combined with coconut milk and coconut cream really let the tropical fruit shine.

Garnish for the Christmas Margarita Punch

The cocktail itself already does look quite festive. But the addition of floating cranberries and a rosemary sprig truly ignite those Christmas vibes. But neither of both is needed or part of the actual recipe. So treat it like a non-consumable garnish and leave it aside.

To create the impression of little snowflakes on the rim of your glass, you can even rim your glasses with some coconut flakes. By that, you can round off the Christmas theme and elevate the appearance of the drink. Plus, it underlines the concept of a Margarita.

Other Christmas cocktails

Christmas is an excellent occasion to serve some extraordinary cocktails. One of our favorites is our Christmas Spiced Rum Sour, made with a special homemade Christmas syrup. But there are many more beautiful festive recipes. In case you're looking for some inspiration, check out this list with other favorite Christmas cocktails.

More Tequila cocktails

The White Christmas Margarita Punch is a brilliant fit for the festive season, but I quickly want to mention some other must-try Tequila cocktails, as well.

If someone should not be too keen on coconut -which almost seems impossible to me - you can use the ingredients below and create alternatives. Of course, you can do a classic Margarita or Tommy's Margarita. And if you're more the fruity type, there are also the Paloma or the Cantarito.

Each of these cocktails depends on choosing the type of Tequila. That also applies to our Christmas Margarita recipe you'll find below. My recommendation for that would either be an añejo Tequila or silver Tequila. If your budget allows it, choose the añejo as it has less bite and a rounder flavor profile.
