Thunder Margarita

The blue hue of this tasty frozen treat is unique, but don’t be alarmed—it’s just due to the use of blue curacao—kind of reminds of us a blue freezie!


  • 8 cups ice
  • 9 ounces tequila
  • 6 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 6 ounces curacao
  • 1 orange wedge plus 6 orange slices, for serving
  • 2 tablespoons orange-colored sugar

Directions: Add the ice to a blender. Add the tequila, lime juice and curacao and blend. Pour the frozen margarita into a resealable freezer bag and freeze until serving. Run an orange wedge around the rim of 6 margarita glasses and dip the rim of each in the orange sugar. Fill with the frozen margarita and decorate the rim of each glass with an orange slice.
