Can you even believe the color of these Blue Margaritas?! Just 5 ingredients! Perfect for Cinco de Mayo or poolside all summer long!
I promised more you more margaritas!
But first, let’s talk TV. Because we haven’t done that in awhile.
Game of Thrones.
Did you watch it? I did. Kind of. It doesn’t hold my attention like it used to. People were freaking out about it and I have no idea what happened. Soooo… I’m gonna listen to a recap podcast or 14 before I decide if I’m going to resubscribe to HBO for the rest of the season.
What’d you think? Worth the monthly fee for HBO?
Orphan Black is amazing as always. The actress that plays the clones is so incredible. I’m obsessed with her and the show.
I binge watched The Girlfriend Experience over the weekend. Also incredible. Not kid friendly at all but it was just really well done and I love a show with a strong female lead.
Umm… I haaaaate Real Housewives of Dallas. HATE HATE HATE. The worst. They do not deserve the title of Housewives.
Still love Real Housewives of NYC. Bethenny is my spirit animal.
What are you watching? What else should I be watching?! Tell me if I need to keep watching GoT! HELP ME DECIDE.
How To Make Blue Margaritas
My fave Mexican place back in Colorado Springs (3 Margaritas on Powers!) had the best blue margaritas and I have been dying to make some ever since we moved down here.
So really, Blue Margaritas don’t taste that different from the classic but they’re so pretty! The blue comes from the curacao which tastes a lot like Triple Sec and is mostly there just for the color.
Also, it’s quite cheap at the liquor store so don’t let the 3 different types of booze scare you away from making this one.
Definitely add it to your Cinco de Mayo plans – your friends and fam will love it!
