Bartender’s tips and advice
- This is the famous blue version of the classic Margarita. For the Blue Margarita the Curacao Triple Sec is being replaced with Curacao Blue giving the cocktail its distinct blue color.
- The Margarita is very similar to the classic Sidecar cocktail for which the main ingredient is Cognac instead of Tequila.
- Always try to use fresh squeezed lemon juice for the Margarita. Using fresh juices is key to preparing classic cocktails with a great taste. There´s at least 1 oz. (= 3 cl) of juice in every lemon.
