The Mermaid Margarita

The Blondetenders’ spring-inspired cocktail

Enjoy this fun cocktail with the ladies (or anyone 21 and over!) in your life.

Ingredients

·         1 ½ ounces Teslon tequila 

·         1 ounce triple sec

·         ½ ounce lime juice

·         2 ounces lemonade

·         3 ounces butterfly pea flower tea

·         Lemon or lime garnish

Directions

Sugar the rim (optional)

·         Fill a small plate with a circle of agave. Fill another plate with sugar. Dip your glass in the agave and then into the sugar. When it is covered with your desired amount of sugar, fill ¾ of the glass with ice and set aside.

Make the butterfly pea flower tea

·         Bowl 2-3 cups of water

·         Add butterfly pea flower tea (can be found on Amazon)

·         Allow 5-6 minutes to steep for the beautiful ocean blue natural color

·         Strain over a loose tea strainer or cheesecloth

·         Option to refrigerate or use right away (may need a few more ice cubes if you go the latter route)

Make the margarita mix

·         Add tequila, triple sec, lime juice, and a few ice cubes to a cocktail shaker. Cover and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Give the mix a taste and stir in a teaspoon or two of sweetener, if desired.

Strain and add the magic

·         Strain the margarita mix over the ice cups. Add the lemonade. For the magical color-changing effect, slowly pour in the butterfly pea flower tea. Garnish with a lime or lemon wheel. Serve and enjoy.
