Wedding Signature Cocktail – Margarita with Blue Curacao

The Mix: Our blog series on everything from signature cocktails to DJ playlists. 

This striking blue-green cocktail will add a punch of color and fun to your reception alcohol drink selections. While bartenders refer to this cocktail as a blue margarita, the name is up to you!  Imagine sipping a Blue Paradise while doing the conga line at your luau-themed wedding. A bright colored cocktail also looks stunning in elegant martini glasses against the simplicity of a black and white wedding. The blue margarita is an excellent choice, both for aesthetics and taste.

Blue Margarita with Blue Curacao

The mix

  • Shaker with ice.
  • 2:1 (tequila: curacao)
  • Lime juice (a healthy dose, a little less than an ounce.)
  • A splash of whatever sour mix is on hand.
  • Shake it up Bond style, pour and enjoy.

    More tips:  My bartender also recommends adding some white soda, if you’re not blending, to cut the sweetness. Leave off the salted rim when using the blue curacao.

    Taste test: This shaken (not blended) drink was very quick and easy to make, which will keep your bartenders and guests happy.  While the drink packed a punch, it was not overly strong or sweet.  I quite enjoyed it, but then again, I never saw tequila I didn’t like.
