This beautiful Blue Margarita recipe is simple to make and delicious to drink. The blue color comes from the Blue Curacao, a liqueur flavored with the dried peel of the Laraha Citrus fruit, grown on the island of Curaçao. The Laraha Citrus is similar to the Valencia orange, but due to the arid climate of the island, the fruit is not sweet, but has a bitter taste.
This is a great margarita to celebrate the 4th of July with its patriotic blue tones.
