I am not super into mixed drinks but I do think they are pretty (just look at these pictures) and I always order a margarita when I go to On the Boarder with my mom. I have never made a mixed drink at home and I thought that needed to change especially when I get my cute bar cart to hold all the pretty liqueur bottles that I will own (starting with that pretty bottle of tequila I picked up for this post!) With summer sneaking up on us, my friend encouraged me to try a new spin on a typical margarita – a coconut margarita! Seriously, all this baby needs is a beach and the summer sun! YUM.
WHAT YOU NEED
3 (ish) Cups of ice
1/2 Cup Coconut Milk (the kind in a can)
1/4 Cup lime juice
1/4 Cup tequila (*more or less to taste)
3 Tbs bakers sugar
4 Drops of essential lime oil
Salt or sugar for rim
1. Cut up lime for garnish
2. Mix ice, coconut milk, lime juice, tequila, bakers sugar, and essential oil together in a blender.
3. Use a bowl or plate to wet the rims of the glasses and cover in sugar or salt. I do this by placing my glass upside down in a plate of water and then rolling the edges in a small bowl of salt.
4. Pour in mix.
5. Add straws and limes. Enjoy!

My name is Ashley, and I blog over at crazysimplelove. I began using Young Living Essential oils about 6 months ago. I started using them mainly because of my husband’s stress, he is a small business owner and was under enormous amounts of pressure and had pretty severe anxiety. I was searching for more natural ways to help him and on a whim I ordered a starter kit. I wasn’t really expecting much but was completely overwhelmed with gratitude when time and time again they helped.
I have began to incorporate them into every part of our lifestyle and am amazed as I watch my medicine cabinet and cleaning cabinet dwindle away. I knew I wanted to jump into the business side of Young Living to again, help alleviate some of that stress my husband was under, and God has blessed me more with that than I could have imagined. I am surrounded by women who encourage me and bless me daily. The company, the oils, and the lifestyle are all complete blessings to me and I am passionate to empower other families with the tools necessary to experience this blessing as well. I would love and be honored to help you on that journey. As a special gift to Oak and Oats readers anyone who signs up for the premium starter kit with me will be gifted a roll on oil from me. Roll on’s are a convenient way to have your essential oils with you while you are on the go. Email me at Ashley@crazysimplelove.com to get started today.
