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 A Blue Margarita
It is pretty close to a classic margarita with one difference. Blue Curacao. This is what gives it the gorgeous blue color and makes it look like summer in a glass!
What is in a Blue Margarita?
- Lime Juice
- Triple Sec
- Blue Curacao
Blue Curacao is added to give it the pretty color. What Does Blue Curacao Taste Like? It is a slightly bitter orange flavored liquor that is very popular in tropical drinks. To me it is very similar to triple sec.
How to make a Blue Margarita
- The method is the same if you are making a single glass or a pitcher. Add all of the ingredients to a class, pitcher, or cocktail shaker.
- Shake or stir until everything is well combined.
- Pour over ice to serve.
- If you want to make a Frozen Blueberry Margarita, add all of the ingredients along with ice to a blender and blend.
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!
