how to make a coconut blood orange margarita


  • 2 oz tequila blanco
  • 2 oz blood orange juice
  • 1 oz cream of coconut 
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice 
  • blood orange wheel, for garnish
  • tahin rim, for garnish


To create a tahin rim, take a lime wedge and run the juicy part along the rim of the glass. Fill a small plate with tahin and dip the rim of the glass into the spices until it is covered with your desired amount. Set aside.

In a cocktail shaker, combine tequila, blood orange juice, cream of coconut, lime juice, and ice. Shake until chilled. Strain into final glass filled with ice and garnish with blood orange wheel and an extra dash of tahin.
