Key Ingredients You’ll Need
White Tequila: If you don’t have white tequila, you can use Mezcal which is an agave-based substitute for tequila.
Lime Juice: I like to use freshly squeezed lime juice to really bring out the flavor.
Canada Dry Vanilla Cream Soda: You can use other types of soda, but this one tastes the best and adds a nice carbonated touch.
Orange Liqueur: A great substitute for this if you don’t have it is Calvados.
Pink Cotton Candy Sugar: This is where you get that lovely and sweet cotton candy flavor.
How To Make A Cotton Candy Margarita
Step 1. Add the Tequila, Lime Juice, Vanilla Soda, and Orange Liqueur into a large pitcher and shake to combine. Allow the mixture to chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Dip the glass rims in the lime juice before dipping it into the candy sugar to coat.
Step 2. Take the pitcher out and fill each glass about 3/4 of the way full and put 1/2 cup of cotton candy into each drink and mix to combine. Serve cold and enjoy!
Can This Margarita Be Made Into A Mocktail?
Yes, you can make this tasty recipe into a mocktail if you desire. You will just need to substitute one of the ingredients. You can use orange marmalade to replace the orange liqueur and keep out the white tequila.
