The Blue Margarita

Nothing screams tropical paradise quite like a delicious Margarita so we thought we’d dive into the history of this popular cocktail.

 

It is widely believed that this beloved drink evolved from a lesser known cocktail called the ‘tequila daisy’, which was a mix of tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice and a splash of soda, however the margarita is known to have many different and mysterious origins but legend has it that happened to involve a very beautiful woman.

 

It would eventually become known by its Spanish name, Margarita, which simply means daisy.

 

This recipe also known as the Moonlight Margarita or an Electric Margarita is a simple twist on the classic Margarita recipe.

 

The blue hue of the Margarita comes from one of the ingredients that go into the cocktail, Blue Curacao, a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the Lahara Citrus Fruit, grown and harvested on the island of Curaçao.

 

This cocktail can be enjoyed both on ice or as a frozen variation, however you choose to have it, it is a party favorite and very fun to make as well as look at. So head onto the recipe section to take a look!
