I’m a big fan of a delicious summer cocktail, especially one that’s pretty. There’s something about a beautiful drink that just makes it taste better going down – what do you think? This margarita cocktail fits the bill.
Doesn’t my blue curacao margarita look awesome? And I haven’t even mentioned the sugar/salt combination on the rim of the glass.
It goes along perfectly with your beverage because it’s salty and sweet at the same time, which is a nice twist on a traditional margarita. I love it!
Curacao Margarita Recipe
For tequila I love 1800 Silver . . . it depends on your personal preference, but this tequila is a favorite of mine. It’s made from 100% Weber blue agave, and I feel it goes really well with the blue curacao.
The blueberries are really just a fancy touch more so than a drink flavor. They compliment the curacao and the color of the beverage, but they aren’t a must have.
