Here is a quick visual guide to the steps of this recipe.


I really like the pop of that cherry red accent with the lime wheel for this blue drink. The salt rim is a classic touch for a Margarita recipe.

More garnishing ideas:

  • Use an orange wheel on the side
  • put three cherries on a pick
  • Add a sprig of fresh mint.

The lovely Ocean Blue margarita fits right in by the pool or on your porch. Using a reposado tequila gives you a smooth summer cocktail with citrus tones. Very refreshing. Drink curaçao cocktail to create that summertime beachy vibe.


  • 2 oz. Tequila (we used 1800 Reposado tequila)
  • 1 oz. Blue Curaçao
  • 1 oz. Cointreau
  • 1 oz. fresh lime juice


Prepare the Glass:

  1. Chill the glass ahead of time (30 minutes in the fridge or 15 minutes in your freezer).
  2. Wet the rim of the glass with a lime wedge or rub the rim in simple syrup to really stick the salt onto the rim. (see video)
  3. Invert the glass into kosher salt and rub it around until the wet and sticky rim absorbs the salt.

Prepare the Cocktail:

  1. Add ice to your cocktail shaker
  2. Measure and pour into the shaker the tequila, cointreau and blue curaçao.
  3. Slice the fresh lime in half.
  4. Squeeze the lime half into your margarita glass (Or a 1 oz measure to be precise.)
  5. Shake vigorously 10 to 30 seconds until the shaker is very cold.
  6. Strain into rimmed Margarita glass.

Garnishing the Ocean Blue Margarita:

  1. Slice a wheel off the fresh lime.
  2. Slice through the wheel halfway.
  3. Set the cut lime wheel onto the salted rim of the glass.
  4. Set a maraschino cherry on a pick and set in the glass to pop that blue color.



  • Triple sec can be substituted for the cointreau.
  • Use whatever reposado tequila you have on hand. Reposado tequila gives a smoother better cocktail.
