Blue Margarita Recipe – A pretty blue twist on a classic margarita. So easy to make, delicious, and fun to drink. You can make it by the glass or by the pitcher!
I am not one for straight tequila, but apparently when you mix it with some lime juice I am a happy girl! And I tend to like them if they are just a little sweet. Throw in a night out with friends and you have the perfect recipe.
Last year I had a blue margarita for the first time. And I was immediately in love. It was fruity, sweet, a pretty color, and so good.
What is in a Blue Margarita?
Tequila, lime juice, and triple sec are the classic margarita ingredients and they are definitely in a blue margarita as well. Plus one special ingredient to make it blue! Blue Curacao is added to give it the pretty color. Blue curacao is an orange flavored liquor, so very similar to triple sec.
How to make a Blue Margarita
There is nothing special about making this verses the original version. The recipe below can be made by the pitcher or by the glass, so you can just have one with your tacos and guacamole on Tuesday, or you can make a pitcher for a party. Just pour all of the ingredients into a pitcher or glass and mix. It is best served nice and cold over ice. You could even pour over ice in a blender, and make a frozen version.
I have made this blue margarita recipe a few times, and it doesn’t have any sweetener added to it, but you can add a little bit of simple syrup to taste if you like yours on the sweet side. I thought I would need to add it, but when I tasted it, it was perfect and not necessary for me!
Now I just need a big bowl of homemade salsa and some chips and I will be happy. Great for a girls night with friends, for taco night, or to serve at a party. Everyone is going to love the color and wonder how you did it!
