Blue Ice Margarita with Serrano Chile Infused Agave

Standard

This cocktail can be made anytime! The blue ice chips in this margarita is inspired by Breaking Bad’s pure blue….product that they distributed ::ahem:: lol.  This drink is honestly one of my favorite cocktails. It is pretty, the perfect combination of sweet and spicy, and of course it packs a punch. Be careful, do not be fooled by the blue ice chips and lime garnish…this drink is NO JOKE! But it’s delicious…

INGREDIENTS

For the Blue Ice Chips:

Water

Curacao

For the Margarita:

4 oz of Reposado tequila

2 oz of agave nectar

2 Serrano Chiles

1 lime cut into wedges


DIRECTIONS

For the Ice Chips: Get a small plastic bowl and put 2 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of blue curacao. Refrigerate for atleast  hours or until the mixture is frozen. Once the mixture is frozen, use a spoon or muddle to break up the ice in thick chunks. Because the blue curacao has alcohol in it, it will not be frozen solid. When the drink is ready to serve, top it off with blue ice chips.

For the Serrano Chile Infused Agave: I added 2 Serrano chiles to Tres Agaves Organic Nectar and let it sit for 24 hours. If you don’t want to wait as long, have the Serrano Chiles in there for at least 2 hours, it will still give it a nice flavor.

For the margaritas: Add tequila, lime juice and agave into a mixer filled halfway with ice. Shake well and pour over ice. Then add your blue ice curacao mixture. If you’re crazy like I am, garnish with a Serrano chile or just drop a chile in your glass!!  ENJOY!
