These are the BEST blue margaritas you will ever sample, that is a promise. My friend Michelle started off with a basic blue Margarita ingredients and literally kept re-trying until she got the Blue Margarita recipe right. Then, after it was right, she kept remaking it until it was perfected! After a few times, and a few hangovers- the Blue Margarita recipe was perfected to the point of utter flawlessness.
Here it is:
- approximately one cup of ice cubes
- 2 oz blue curacao
- 3/4 oz tequila
- 3/4 oz lime juice
- 2 and a half tbs sugar
Add all ingredients to blender. Blend to desired consistency. Add more ice for a “thicker”drink, less for a slushy type drink. Pour into margarita glasses. Sprinkle sea salt or kosher salt on top to taste, stir with a spoon, serve with straws, and garnish with lime.
Yay Thank you to Michelle for this recipe!

This is a lovely, easy-easy-easy drink recipe I came across with a friend while hanging out at the hotel bar at Convention in Georgia! The bartender did not have a name for it- he made it for my friend who wanted something “fruity” and asked the bartender to surprise him. So, we named it ourselves- and here it is!
1 and a half shots Malibu Rum
1 pineapple juice to fill up your glass ( I go with an old fashioned glass – so about 6 oz)
a splash of grenadine – I add it last for the sunrise effect!
^ Made by yours truly on Saturday night!
