One margarita, two margarita, red margarita, BLUE MARGARITA! The addition of blue curacao gives a twist on a classic margarita with its citrusy orange flavor and of course, bright blue hue. This cocktail is tart and refreshing and super easy to make. Its invigorating flavor and ocean-tinted color really make it stand out, requiring only four ingredients and a cocktail shaker.
