Blue Margarita

Here is my go-to fresh margarita recipe.  No store mix just fresh squeezed lemon juice and blue curacao for a nice ocean beach blue color.  Shake it up and serve or pour over the rocks.

Instructions

  1. Pour all ingredients except lemon slice into a shaker with ice. Shake well. Serve cold and pour into a chilled Margarita glass.
  2. Top with lemon slice.
  3. If you like a salted margarita, take a slice of lemon and rub it around the rim then dip the glass in kosher salt. The salt will stick to the lemon juice.
