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.</p>
<h3>Ingredients:</h3>
<ul>
<li>4 or 5 orange-scented geranium leaves</li>
<li>1 cup limeade</li>
<li>¼ cup good-quality tequila</li>
<li>2 tablespoons blue curacao</li>
<li>Lime wedge</li>
<li>Salt</li>
<li>Crushed ice</li>
</ul>
<h3>Directions:</h3>
<ol>
<li>Muddle orange geranium leaves in the bottom of the cocktail shaker. Add limeade, tequila and curacao.</li>
<li>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.</li>
<li>Shake for 10 seconds and strain margarita into prepared glass. Add a little crushed ice to the drink if you desire.</li>
</ol>
