Looking for a fun spin on the classic margarita recipe? Look no further!
This creamy margarita cocktail recipe will go down smoooooth and silky, as it’s made with decadent half and half cream.
I am a huge fan of easy cocktails and this is definitely one. Cocktails always have a wow factor that you can’t achieve with other drinks, even when they are ridiculously easy to make (as long as you have the ingredients on hand, which, to be fair, may be the hardest part).
The following photos may play tricks on your eyes, all you have to do to make this creamy margarita cocktail is dump a few ingredients into a shaker and rim a glass, especially if you purchase the simple syrup.
If that’s too much, may I recommend instead this Pineapple Rum Cocktail? It’s also a good cocktail if you have a dairy allergy. Alternatively, substitute some full fat coconut milk into this, it’s my go-to dairy replacement because it maintains the creaminess!
Let’s take a look at those pictures now…
