Lime in the Coconut Margarita

limeinthecoconut

Have you all ever tried organic coconut juice? I’ve had coconut water and coconut milk, but I recently discovered this coconut juice at Whole Foods last week and it is sooo amazing. First off (not that I’m gluten free or lactose intolerant) it’s GF and dairy free for those of you who are. Second, it’s got just the right amount of sweetness, a little bit of tanginess and it’s unbelievably refreshing. It’s what I imagine should come straight from a freshly cracked coconut… basically pure heaven. 

As good as it is on it’s own, I couldn’t resist crafting up some sort of cocktail with the stuff and what better than with a bit of lime and tequila? So, there you have it. The Lime in the Coconut margarita and my official drink for summer 2014. Keep reading for the recipe and happy weekend everyone!

Chocolate Caramel Stout Float

 Merry Christmas Eve, friends! Around here, the next couple of days are all about feasting. Our tradition (passed down by Shawn’s family) is steamers and lobsters on Christmas Eve and tomorrow, we’ll make a big lasagna, followed by plenty of tasty treats. Including this new concoction I whipped up for the first time last week. An adult version of the root beer float, this overflowing, beautiful mess is complete, utter heaven. It’s a MUST-try and it couldn’t be more simple. Maybe too simple for the unbelievably delicious result. Keep reading for the recipe below. Wishing you a cozy evening and a Merry Christmas!
