30mllime juice(save the used lime for the glass rim)
15mlsimple sugar syrup(or to taste)
salt sprinkled on a saucer
lime slices for decorating the glass/drink
Simple Sugar Syrup
Run a lime slice all around the rim of your glass and dip the glass rim into the salt, coating well.
Add the required amounts of tequila, Curaçao, lime juice and syrup into your shaker with the ice cubes. If you don't have a shaker, just use a jug.
Shake it all up really well, both to mix as well as to chill the drink. If you don't have a shaker, just stir it all up in the jug.
Taste, add more syrup or lime juice if you think it needs it.
Pour the blue margarita, minus the ice cubes, into your prepared glass, stick a lime slice on and sip away!
Simple Sugar Syrup (needs to be made ahead and left to cool)
Place the water and sugar into a small pan and bring to a boil.
Simmer for 10 minutes on the lowest heat to allow the flavours to develop and the syrup to thicken.
Leave to cool, no need to place in the fridge.
Total time does not take into account the making of the simple syrup, which should be made, then cooled.You will have excess syrup because I'm assuming you'll be making more than 1 serving.I usually make this amount, bottle it up and store it somewhere dark and cool. Be careful with drips if you have an ant problem. In the summer, I place it in the fridge, but it really does thicken.
