Add a little tropical flair to your summer with Blue Lagoon Margaritas! This jaw dropping drink is a cross between a Blue Lagoon Cocktail and a traditional Frozen Margarita. There’s something about a margarita that instantly gives you those low key, laid back, summertime sort of vibes. Maybe it’s the tequila! This pretty drink makes a great summer sipper because it’s not only easy to make, it’s easy to drink. The perfect blend of both sweet and sour along with its astonishing electric blue color will make this cocktail an instant favorite. Best enjoyed poolside, lakeside, or on a boat, but even if you don’t have those luxuries, this tropical drink will make you feel like you do!
Here’s all you’ll need: lime, coarse sugar, lemon-lime soda, tequila, blue curacao, frozen limeade and ice.
Let’s go ahead and rim that glass with a little sugar because sugar rimmed glasses are always better! Bonus points if your glass is a fancy shape like the one below. Place 1/4 cup of sugar on a plate or shallow bowl. Rub a lime slice around the rim to moisten and then roll the rim of the glass through the sugar. Discard any remaining sugar. Coarse sugar works best and will give you a more sparkly effect, but plain ole white sugar won’t disappoint either.
Next load up a blender with 4 cups of ice. Like a drink that’s less slushy? Then I recommend cutting it back to 2 cups of ice. Heck! You could even skip this step all together and serve Blue Lagoon Margaritas on the rocks. I give a big Hell yes to all three!!!
Add 1/2 cup lemon-lime soda, 1/2 cup of your favorite tequila (Jose Cuervo is ours!), 1/2 cup blue curacao, and 1/3 cup of frozen limeade to the blender. Blue curacao is an orange flavored liqueur made from the dried peels of a bitter orange fruit called Laraha. It’s basically an ordinary Curaçao liqueur that’s been colored blue. I think the blue color adds that extra bit of oomph to this delicious drink.
Cover the blender and process on until all the ice is crushed and blended. The Blend and Grind settings on this Osterizer blender got me to right where I needed to be. I’m already feeling like I’m in Margartiaville!!! Kick off your shoes and grab a Hawaiian shirt cause we’re almost done.
Pour into a sugar rimmed glass and garnish with a lime slice and maybe even a tropical umbrella! Finish with tan lines and Jimmy Buffet. I recommend serving Blue Lagoon Margaritas with our Tropical Fruit Salsa and Grilled Nachos. You’ll be glad that you did!
