During this cold snap, I’ve found myself attracted to cocktails that remind me of warm weather. The Margarita is a quintessential sunny-day drink. This dark blue variation on that classic is a little sweeter and looks a lot more dramatic. You could use lime instead of lemon or use more lemon if you want it more tart. Photo by Jackson Stakeman.
