ICe cubes

4.5 ounces Silver tequila

3 ounces Lime juice

3 ounces Simple syrup

Blue Food dye

Extra tequila to rim the glasses

Blue sanding sugar

Kosher salt


Fill a cocktail shaker ½ full with ice cubes. Measure in the tequila, fresh-squeezed lime juice, and simple syrup and shake well. Add a few drops of blue food coloring and shake lightly to combine.

To rim the margarita glasses, start by pouring a thin layer of tequila on a plate. On a second plate, sprinkle equal amounts of blue sugar and kosher salt and mix to combine. Dip the rim of each glass first in the tequila and then in the sugar & salt mixture.

Strain your beverage into each glass, sit back, and enjoy your Crystal Blue Margarita while watching your favorite episode of Breaking Bad.
