Herbal Summer Cocktails: Blue Margarita

Content Tools

Makes 1 margarita
Here’s a tropical blue take on the classic margarita. The orange-scented geranium works harmoniously with the curacao. Any of the orange pelargoniums will do, but ‘Prince of Orange’ is my personal favorite.

  • 4 or 5 orange-scented geranium leaves
  • 1 cup limeade
  • ¼ cup good-quality tequila
  • 2 tablespoons blue curacao
  • Lime wedge
  • Salt
  • Crushed ice
  1. Muddle orange geranium leaves in the bottom of the cocktail shaker. Add limeade, tequila and curacao.
  2. Run lime wedge around the rim of a chilled margarita glass, and dip rim in salt. Squeeze lime wedge into cocktail shaker and add about a cup of crushed ice.
  3. Shake for 10 seconds and strain margarita into prepared glass. Add a little crushed ice to the drink if you desire.
