Clementine Creamsicle Margaritas with Chili Salt

  • Yield: makes 2 cocktails, easily multiplied 1x



For the Chili Salt:

  • 2 tablespoons coarse kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoon chili powder

For Two Cocktails:

  • ½ cup orange liqueur (Grand Marnier or Triple Sec)
  • ½ cup clementine juice (for me, this was roughly 4 clementines)
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice (for me, this was roughly 2 limes)
  • ¾ cup silver tequila
  • ¼ cup canned light coconut milk (shake well before measuring)
  • 1 oz agave nectar
  • Clementine and lime wedges, for serving


For the Chili Salt:

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the salt, sugar, and chili powder until well mixed. Pour onto a plate or into a shallow bowl.

For Two Cocktails:

  1. Rim the edges of two chilled glasses with a lime wedge and then rim the glasses with the chili salt. Fill the glasses with ice.
  2. To a cocktail shaker filled with ice, add the orange liqueur, clementine juice, lime juice, tequila, coconut milk, and agave nectar.
  3. Shake vigorously for a few seconds to thoroughly mix and chill the ingredients.
  4. Divide the mixture between the two glasses and garnish each with additional citrus slices. Serve immediately.
