Blue Meanies

Recipe by  

"This twist on the traditional margarita is lightly sweet but packs a punch. A friend claims to have been temporarily paralyzed the morning after enjoying a few of these 'Blue Meanies!' You can also blend this with the ice."

Blue Meanies are NICE! Reeeal nice! We've become good friends in fact! I'm planing on getting together next weekend too! Simple drink to put together, very refreshing and easy to drink so beware they sneak up on ya pretty quick!

The Myers' make a mean Blue Meanie. I had the great opportunity of tasting these at an AR gathering for a margarita party. Several margaritas were made by Marianne and Baking Nana and we taste tested them all. This one clearly stood out from all of the others. If you want to impress your guests or even yourself this is it. Randy and Cathy you blew away the competition with the Blue Meanies.

We enjoyed this "Blue Meanies" variation on a margarita. Mine was green, not blue as in the photos, presumably owing to differences in brands of liquors. I made mine with freshly-squeezed and strained organic orange, lemon, and lime juices, MEAGHERS triple sec, BOLS blue Curacao, GOLD SAUZA tequila, and blended ice. REVIEW UPDATE: The first time I made this I found it a bit acidic for my hypersensitive (celiac) stomach; however, my husband did not find it acidic at all. I eventually figured out that the BOLS blue Curacao was the culprit. I am known to have a ton of food intolerances, so this is not surprising in my particular case. I substituted the blue Curacao with triple sec and it was great (5 stars for the adapted version). Thank you Cathy Myers for sharing your recipe.
