The recipe for CCPL’s entry into the Sixth Annual Mocktail Event,  the Marga-READ-A:


  • 1/4 cup Coconut Cream
  • 1 1/4 cup of cranberry juice
  • 1 cup Apple Juice
  • Lime Juice to taste
  • 1 T. Grenadine


Mix a small amount of juice with the coconut cream in a blender to make sure the cream mixes in well with the juice. Add the rest of the ingredients. The traditional Margarita is enjoyed in a glass that has had the rim salted.  We dipped the rims of our cups in apple juice and then colored holiday sugar to give the drinks a festive look.  All of the above ingredients can be purchased at your local grocery store.  Grenadine is a syrup that is made with pomegranate juice.  Coconut cream  has less water than coconut milk, it has a thick consistency.  Both of these items can be found in the drink mixer section of the grocery store. This can be served in individual glasses or from a punch bowl.

See you next month,

Meet me in the kitchen!
