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.
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.
Now all this funky drink needs is an equally fun name. Comment below and leave a suggestion!
