Cheers to Iced Coffee Margaritas!

The ingredient list;

  • Tequila (your favorite variety)
  • Cold Brewed Coffee
  • Honey
  • Lemon Zest
  • Finely Ground Coffee
  • Granulated Sugar
  • Ice Cubes

The easy instructions;

  • Drizzle a circle of honey on a plate the same circumference as the rim of the glass.
  • On another plate, mix together the coffee grounds and sugar.
  • Dip the rim of each glass into the honey and then into the ground coffee and sugar mixture.
  • Fill each glass with ice and pour in the tequila and cold coffee.
  • Twist the lemon zest, drop it in the margarita, and serve.

While I don’t specifically endorse day-drinking (especially in the morning), there are just times you can make an exception. Think Sunday brunch, and National Margarita Day, when you’re talking about this delicious coffee cocktail, of course.

Hi! I’m Renée! Thanks so much for visiting me here in my Kudos Kitchen, where I like to inspire you with delicious family-friendly dishes which are easy to prepare as well as being a feast for your eyes, and your taste buds!


  1. Renee, these are so much, seriously brilliant! I cannot wait to try them (which makes me so happy that I can drink them for breakfast). Happy National Margarita Day! 🙂

  2. Holy moly! I'm in love. May I have this instead of my morning coffee today?!? Thanks for sharing with #nationalmargaritaday.

  3. Oh my word! Genius! I have cold leftover coffee all the time 😉 Cheers!

  4. A must try eye-opener!

  5. This is the margarita I was looking forward to most. I LOVE coffee cocktails, and this is now at the top of my list of margaritas to make.

  6. Best idea ever! So fun participating in Margarita day with you!

  7. I had no idea it was National Margarita day as I'm not much of a drinker, but I am a lover of iced coffee and man it looks great!

  8. WHAT?! These sound amazing. What a great idea!

  9. What a fun idea! I've got some coffee flavored patron that would work really well in this too I think. The sugar and coffee rimmed glass is clever too!

  10. Oh this is my kind of coffee!

  11. An iced coffee margarita?! What?! Yes. Love everything about this.

  12. Okay being a margarita girl and a coffee girl I have got to try this.

  13. How fun seeing all the different inspirations for Nat'l Margarita Day! So much more fun to change it up with all these different flavors. I am a coffee girl so your recipe is calling my name! Cheers to Nat'l Margarita Day!

  14. This sounds amazing! I need to give it a try!

  15. If there's one thing I love more than margaritas, it's coffee so love that you combined them!

  16. I don't drink coffee but I think even I'd like these! Well, toss in some ice cream and I would. 😉 Is ice cream and margaritas a thing? It totally should be. 😀

  17. Any excuse to drink a Margarita is a-ok in my book! Cheers!

  18. Ice coffee margarita!!!! You are killing me! This sounds sooooooooo good!

  19. That sounds like a breakfast margarita to me, Renee. Perfect!

  20. This is SO my kind of coffee! Brilliant!

  21. Just popping in to let you know I’ve included your recipe for Iced Coffee Margarita in my round-up of iced coffee recipes on Taste As You Go. Thanks for contributing, Renee!

  22. I would have never though that coffee could be turned into a margarita, but those flavors make sense. I love the little bit of lemon to pep the coffee flavors up and keep it a bit true to its citrus roots. This is a really clever recipe!

  23. 5 stars
    This is so unique!! I think I might have a new favorite drink 😉
