Coconut Twisted Margarita

There are people who have sworn off tequila, but will still indulge in a margarita.  Tequila and lime is such a versatile base that goes well with so many different flavors. 

My sister- and mother-in-law stumbled upon The Spice and Tea Exchange location in Annapolis, MD.  They picked up a little packet of salt for me that is a smoked coconut-lime sea salt.  Seriously.  How fucking awesome is that?!  This salt was screaming for a margarita.  (Speaking of Maryland, I am heading that way today to visit friends and go to the Maryland Ren Fest!)

Coconut Twisted Margarita
1 1/2 oz silver tequila
3/4 oz coconut rum
3/4 oz coconut water
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp simple syrup (or more to taste)
salt (optional)

   Rim glass with salt.  (Run squeezed lime half around edge of glass.  Dip into salt.)
   Combine tequila, rum, coconut water, lime juice (along w/ one half of the lime) and simple syrup with ice in a shaker.  Shake well.
   Pour into glass.  Add one ice cube to glass.
   Makes 1 drink.
