What You’ll Need

This pitcher margarita recipe requires just 7 ingredients. Christmas cocktails don’t get much easier than this!

  • Tequila – Silver or blanco tequila works best.
  • Simple syrup – Grab some at the store or make homemade simple syrup with just 2 ingredients.
  • Lime juice – Freshly squeezed lime juice is key! It will really make these margaritas pop.
  • Coconut milk – Adds a rich, creaminess to these margaritas as well as an underlying coconut flavor.
  • Fresh cranberries – Adds a pop of color and festive touch.
  • Lime wheels
  • Fresh rosemary – For a garnish.

What’s The Best Tequila For A Margarita?

You’ll want to use a silver or blanco margarita for this recipe. It has a lighter flavor than gold tequila as it’s only been aged for 2 years, which is ideal when working with flavors like coconut.

The most important thing is to use a quality margarita. Skip the cheapest options as you will definitely be able to taste it. Patron and Don Julio are always great options.

How to Salt (Or Sugar) A Margarita Glass Rim

While most margaritas usually come with a salt rim but for this Christmas margarita, I think a sugar rim is a nice touch. Either works, so take your pick!

In either case, you have two options – to dip the rim in some simple syrup and then into a shallow dish of sugar or salt, or use lime to wet the rim and then dip it into the salt/sugar.
