In my opinion, there is nothing better than a classic recipe made perfectly with exceptional ingredients. So when it comes to cocktails, classics are some of my favorites, including this recipe from BHG for margaritas. However, if you know me well, you know I like to mix things up every once in awhile. And, if I can make something more colorful, you can bet I’m going to do it!
That’s just what I did for my latest creation, the blue margarita!
To create this beauty, I followed this classic margarita recipe and added about 3/4 of cup of blue curaçao. The result is a little extra citrus flavor and the most beautiful color. Isn’t it gorgeous?
It’s such a fun, unexpected take on a classic. I also like this addition because it helps to cut the taste of the tequila. Despite its blue hue, the curaçao has a orange-like flavor that works really well in a margarita.
I may be sipping on a few of these from time to time. They are so good on a sunny summer day. You can get the recipe for classic margaritas here. Cheers!
