+ 2 lime slices
+ 1/4 cup coarse sugar
+ 1/2 cup chilled lemon-lime soda
+ 1/2 cup tequila
+ 1/2 cup blue curacao
+ 1/3 cup lime juice
+ 2 - 4 cups ice cubes
- Place 1/4 cup of sugar on a plate or shallow bowl. Rub a lime slice around the rim of the glass to moisten. Roll the rim in the sugar. Discard any remaining sugar.
- Load up a blender with 4 cups of ice. For a less icy drink, use 2 cups of ice. Alternatively you could even skip this step all together and serve Blue Lagoon Cocktail on the rocks.
- Add 1/2 cup lemon-lime soda, 1/2 cup of tequila, 1/2 cup blue curacao, and 1/3 cup of lime juice to the blender and process on until the ice is crushed and blended. Alternative simply mix all ingredients (if serving on the rocks)
- Pour into a sugar rimmed glass and garnish with a lime slice.
