Sweet Cinco de Mayo Drink … Margarita in a Cone

Did you wonder why anyone would want to put a margarita in a candy coated ice cream cone?

I have a four-part answer to that question …

  1. I used my real margarita glass to hold the chips and salsa … a “must have” to go with any margarita.
  2. After the margarita is finished … you have a little dessert.
  3. Less dishes to wash.
  4. Why not?

Remember the Edible Shot Glasses?  These are just the extra-large version!

This is what you will need …

  • Ready made margaritas …

  or make your own!

  • Cake ice cream cones
  • Melted light green candy coating (candy melts, chocolate)  (1 pound for about 18 cones)
  • Margarita salt
  • Limes

Coat the inside of the cone with melted candy … use a small spoon, brush or whatever works best for you …

See those spots that did not get coated … that is not good … I will fix them …

Dip the rim of the cone in melted candy …

Sprinkle the rim with salt or dip the rim in salt … whatever suits your taste …

Pop the cones in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes to harden the candy up.  Please note … the candy must be hard before filling with liquid (cold only).

Do you have any plans for Cinco de Mayo?
