Blue Moon and Stars Margarita
I'm a bit of a purist when it comes to margaritas but I love cocktails that feel special. The addition of edible glitter stars makes this drink so pretty. Almost too pretty to drink,
The best Margaritas use fresh lime + quality tequila and good orange liqueur, like Cointreau or Grand Marnier. Simple, easy, stress-free. For the best results use a high-quality tequila, made with 100 percent agave. Get the Perfect Classic Margarita Recipe
For me, the best margaritas are made with freshly squeezed lime. So let's make some Margaritas!
This will make one cocktail, to make a pitcher just change the number of servings and the recipe will recalculate. Simple, right.
- 1 1/2 oz 100 % agave tequila
- 3/4 oz fresh lime juice
- 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
- 1/2 oz Agave Syrup
- 1 t silver or blue edible star glitter
- 1 lime cut into wedges to wet the rim for the salt
- 1 lime sliced for the garnish
- 1 T coarse salt optional for salted rim
To Make 1 Cocktail
Add Tequilla, lime juice, Blue Curacao liqueur and agave syrup to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake until very cold.
Strain into a salt-rimmed margarita glass filled with ice.
Sprinkle with edible star glitter
Serve the margaritas over ice and garnish with the lime slices.
For a pitcher
To make a pitcher add all ingredients to a pitcher filled with ice and stir vigorously.
Once very cold strain into another pitcher, without ice, so the drink doesn't become watered down.
Keep cold and pour over ice to serve, adding edible glitter just before serving individual drinks.

Vampiro Tequila Cocktail with Jalisco Sangrita. This spicy tequila cocktail mixed with a traditional Jalisco Sangrita. Sangrita’s are my new cocktail obsession. Sangrita or “little blood” has traditionally been served as a chaser for excellent quality tequila. It would have been a mixture of fruit juices and finely ground chili pepper. Many sangrita recipes call for tomato juice, but that would not have been part of the traditional recipe, the original recipe would have been made from leftover juice from fresh fruit salads and changed based on the fruits used.
Today’s cocktail culture is creating very intriguing sangritas as an ingredient in some pretty amazing tequila cocktails. This recipe calls for a combination of grapefruit, orange, and lime with a touch of spicy jalapeno pepper.
