Do you love tequila, but want to give it a unique twist? Fat washing alcohol with virgin coconut oil is the perfect way to add an interesting flavour to your favourite drink. With this method, you can infuse a smooth and creamy coconut flavour into your tequila, creating a new and delicious cocktail that will bring a tropical twist to any gathering. Read on to learn more about the process of fat washing tequila with virgin coconut oil and how to create your own delicious drinks.


Fat washing tequila is a unique technique used to infuse tequila with distinct flavours and aromas. This process involves combining a high-proof spirit such as tequila with a fat such as virgin coconut oil. The combination of the two is left to sit for a period of time, allowing the oils to infuse into the spirit. The result is a smooth and flavorful spirit that can be used for a variety of cocktails. 

Fat washing is a relatively new technique, but it has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to the unique flavours it can create. Many bartenders opt to use coconut oil as the fat of choice as it can add subtle notes of coconut to the spirit. It also works well with tequila, as the sweet and nutty flavour of the oil complements the earthy and spicy notes of the spirit. 

The process of fat washing tequila is simple and requires only a few ingredients. First, combine a high-proof tequila with a few tablespoons of melted virgin coconut oil in a container. The combination should be left to sit for several hours or overnight. 

Then freeze it for a while so that the oil can be skimmed off.

This allows the oil to infuse into the spirit, giving it a unique flavour and aroma even after the oil is removed.

Tips & Tricks

1. Use freshly squeezed lime juice for a more flavorful and balanced margarita.

2. Add a touch of sweetness with agave nectar or simple syrup.

3. Balance out the sweetness with a dash of orange liqueur. 

4. Choose high-quality tequila for the best flavour. 

5. Use white or clear ice for a crisp, clean taste. 

6. Freeze some of the margarita mixes ahead of time for a slushier consistency.

7. Add a pinch of salt to the rim of the glass for a salty-sweet taste. 

8. Add a splash of soda water or club soda to the mix for a fizzy finish. 

9. Garnish with fresh fruit such as lime wedges or orange slices. 

10. For a fun twist, add a splash of your favourite fruit or herbal liqueur.


Q. How much tequila should I use?

A. The amount of tequila you use will depend on your personal preference, but a good starting point is 2 ounces. 


Q. How do I make the simple syrup? 

A. To make the simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Allow the mixture to cool, then store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

Now, you're ready to enjoy your very own coconut margarita. The combination of tart lime, sweet coconut, and smooth tequila makes for an unbeatable flavour. Plus, the creamy coconut milk adds richness and depth that will make this drink the star of any summer gathering. So, why not give it a try?
