Looking for a way to liven up your classic margarita? Try these low-calorie blue margaritas, which use blue curaçao to get a vibrant color that will stand out at all your cocktail parties.
The recipe gets its flavor from limes, which are high in vitamin C and known to fight disease, improve dry skin, and even hinder hangovers. The blue curaçao also provides a citrusy flavor to the drinks.
To make these margaritas, start by making a syrup: Bring water and sugar to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Let the sugar dissolve, and then remove from heat to cool. In a large pitcher with ice, stir in tequila, lime and orange juice, syrup, and blue curaçao. Garnish with orange slices if desired. Serve straight or over ice in glasses rimmed with salt.
