Make mine a margarita…it’s National Margarita Day today.

So it would be wrong not to embrace it.

Why not bring a new twist to the cocktail cabinet with the latest agave spirit from Casa Cuervo, 1800 Coconut Tequila (£29.95, 70cl, www.31dover.com).

Created by infusing 1800 Silver Tequila 100% blue agave with natural coconut flavour, it’s a perfect base for cocktails with sweet notes of coconut and a long, sweet finish.

Here’s a recipe to try at home…

DRINK Drink Column 092681Coconut Margarita

50ml 1800 Coconut
15ml agave syrup or Triple Sec
20ml fresh lime juice
desiccated coconut

Run a wedge of lime around the rim of a cocktail glass and dip in desiccate. Chill the glass.

Half-fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the tequila, Triple Sec and lime juice.

Shake well and strain into chilled cocktail glass.
