It’s already Wednesday, Flicksters, and I am once again stepping out of my comfort zone and trying new things for the Hump Day Cocktail. Confession: I’ve never liked margaritas. Don’t judge! I think it may be the tequila. Anyway, I’ve tried and tried but they just weren’t for me. While researching cocktails for this week, I found a recipe for a Blue Margarita that I think I can get on board with; besides tequila, it has ingredients in it that I do like AND I already had all of them on hand. Bonus! Want to try one with me?
-2 oz tequila
-2 oz Blue Curacao
-1 ounce of lemon juice
-1 ounce of lime juice
-6 oz pineapple juice
-Lime wedges and cherries for garnish
-Salt or sugar to rim the glasses
Depending on your preference, you can either serve this frozen or on the rocks. To serve it frozen, place ice in a blender and pour all liquid ingredients over the top. Blend until slushy, then pour into chilled margarita glasses and garnish with 1 lime wedge and a cherry. If you’d like it on the rocks, fill a cocktail shaker with chopped ice and pour liquid ingredients over the top. Shake well, but do not strain. Pour everything, including the ice, into 2 glasses. Add a straw and you are in Margaritaville.
*For best results, chill margarita glasses and then rub a lime wedge around the rims and then dip the glasses in salt or sugar. For this recipe, I’d prefer sugar, but if you’d rather have salt, go for it!
