A Beautiful Blue Margarita Recipe 💙

This Blue Margarita features Blue Curacao liqueur and muddled fresh blueberries for an extra blue burst of color and flavor. The combination of sweet berry and tangy citrus will delight your guests and be a real showstopper.
Ingredient Spotlight: Blue Curacao
Curacao is a Caribbean liqueur that is traditionally made from the dried peels of the laraha bitter orange. It was named after the island country where it was first produced in 1896.
Is the blue color natural? No. The distinctive blue color is achieved by adding blue food coloring to make it stand out from other orange flavored liqueurs.
What other cocktails are made with this liqueur? Blue Curacao mixes well with vodka, tequila, and rum so the possibilities are truly endless. A few possibilities that come to mind are: Rum Punch, Lemonade, Mimosas, or Mules along with Margaritas, of course!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
- Blanco Tequila – A margarita staple, earthy tequila keeps you sipping this unique drink.
- Blue Curacao Liqueur – Blue Curacao not only gives this drink its color but also a sweet citrus taste.
- Limes – Fresh lime juice enhances the citrus flavor of this drink and provides tanginess.
- Blueberries – Muddled blueberries give this drink floral notes as well as mild sweetness.
FAQ & Berry Blue Margarita Tips:
Can I use another type of tequila instead?
- Yes. Any kind of tequila can be used but it will change the flavor and color of your drink slightly.
Is there a possible substitute for the Blue Curacao?
- Yes, you can replace the Curacao with any orange liqueur which would include Triple Sec, Cointreau, or Grand Marnier. However, if you want the blue color you will also need to add a few drops of food coloring.
Do I have to strain the blueberries?
- No, not necessarily. You can leave the muddled berries in your drink but we prefer a cleaner look and it also makes this drink easier for sipping.
Make it Frozen
- Prefer a frozen margarita instead? Simply add more ice and blend all of the ingredients together in a high-powered blender.
Serve a Crowd
- Serving a large group? Make a larger quantity and serve this cocktail in either a pitcher or a large punch bowl. Just don’t forget lots of cups because this will be a popular drink!
The Ultimate Party Cocktail
Please the eye and the palate with this bright blue beauty at your next Summer party. Cheers! 🍹
