The mermaid margarita has a similar taste to a classic margarita and put side-by-side in a blind taste test, one might not be able to tell the difference. However, this mermaid colored margarita is so much more fun to drink because of it’s ocean blue color! You might be wondering what makes it so blue and the key ingredient is a blue liquor known as blue curaçao.
Surprisingly, this is simply an orange flavored liquor with a blue coloring. There are varying stories as to the history of why it is blue, but most like to think it is because of the beautiful blue Caribbean waters surrounding the island of Curacao. No matter how blue curaçao came to be, everyone can agree that this blue ingredient makes for cool and colorful cocktails.
