Blue margaritas are such a fun drink due to their bright blue appearance. What I really love about them, is that the blue comes from Blue Cuaco, not a syrup. Now I use a lot of syrups, and I mean a whole lot. And I really do love them and the versatility they bring as far as colors and tastes. But this recipe is syrup free. I mean, it’s syrup free because it’s basically just different alcohols and some lime juice and sugar. But it really tastes very fresh!
Blue margaritas are the official drink of the lake in my family. If you’re having a lake trip and it involves any type of cocktail, at least one is going to be a blue margarita. If you want to know the story of how the blue margarita came to be the official drink of the lake, you will have to ask someone else. Because I don’t remember. Blue margaritas have to be consumed with extra responsibility because they tend to have the “I don’t remember” effect on a lot of people, not just me. Probably because they taste so good!
Try a blue margarita and celebrate summer with a fun and vibrant blue cocktail that is as refreshing as it is fun!

Blue Curacao derives its orangy taste from the dried leaves of the citrs fruit that is grown on the Island of Curaco. Despite its orange flavor, the liquor has a vibrant blue color which makes it a little extra fun!
Tequila is a lower calorie alcohol made from the blue agave plant primarily found in Mexico getting its name from the town of Tequila in Mexico and the standard base alcohol in a margarita.
