This cocktail is best known to be served at your beach wedding reception, but even if your reception is not happening at the beach, you can still go for it. This delicious cocktail is made of these ingredients: coconut milk, water, tequila, fresh lime, and triple sec. Add all the ingredients into a shaker except the lime, and shake the mixture until fully combined. Now add your fresh lime wedge to garnish it to bring out its creamy hue.
Raspberry Limoncello Prosecco
This great drink is made of limoncello, prosecco, and raspberries. This cocktail is ideal for when the temperature is rising. Start by pouring the limoncello into a glass and slowly pouring prosecco on top. Add some frozen raspberries and some fresh sprigs of mint, and you are good to go.
