Fancy adding an exotic twist next time you mix up a Marg? It's simple. Try adding a coconut-flavoured spirit and swap the traditional salted glass rim for desiccated coconut.

Here's what you'll need and how to make it:


50ml 1800 Coconut

15ml agave syrup or Triple Sec

20ml fresh lime juice

Desiccated coconut


1. Shake the ingredients together and double strain into chilled cocktail or rocks glass.

2. Add a salt rim for a traditional margarita taste or wet the glass rim with lime juice and dip in desiccated.
