Banana Coconut Margarita | recipe on Craftandcocktails.coA tropical take on the classic Marg recipe. I can just see myself with a floppy hat on, watching the waves + sipping on this Banana Coconut Margarita, can’t you?! The tiki umbrella definitley helps 😉 Both the banana + coconut add a creaminess to the drink with out having to mix with any dairy. Coconut and banana are like BFF’s in the glass! I love how the tart lime and banana play against one another, while the coconut bridges these two flavors together into one delicious sip.  Salude!
