 Now that we have learned how to make our own blue crystal (click here to see the tutorial), we can continue on with our Breaking Bad menu!

When I was thinking about what foods to put on the menu, I instantly thought Margarita for the drink. Remember Hank’s famous margaritas? It just seemed appropriate. Then I thought, why not make it blue?! And rather than add sugar to the rim, add blue rock crystals! I cannot get enough of this drink. It’s cold, sweet and sour, and every time you take a sip you get that extra sugary goodness from the blue crystal rim. I kept the crystals chunky and scattered, rather than finely ground to keep it to the blue crystal theme.

Blue Crystal Margaritas

(Measurements Per Drink)

What You’ll Need:

+ 1-1/2 ounce tequila

+ 1 ounce blue curacao liquor

+ 1 oz. lime juice

+ 1 cup crushed ice 

+ 4 Tablespoons Simple Syrup (or more depending on how sweet you like it)

+ Blue crystals for decoration

Rub the rim of the glass with a lime, roll the side of the glass in a plate of the blue crystals. If they don’t stick well, just hold them into place for a second, they will stick. Place all of the remaining ingredients in a blender until it is a slush consistency. Pour into the glass, and enjoy. 

TIP: If you are making these for a crowd, make a big batch and store it in an ice cream maker. It will keep it mixed and cold all night!
