Tips For The Perfect Irish Tequila Drink
- Use Agave Tequila where possible as it is smooth and goes great with the Blue Curacao.
- Blue Curacao is available in non-alcoholic versions too so you can make an alcohol-free version of this cocktail by omitting the tequila (use club soda instead).
- Pulp-free orange juice is best for this cocktail
