If you’re in the mood for something frozen, blue, and non-alcoholic, I’ve got just the thing for you. It’s a blue frozen margarita mocktail, totally non-alcoholic, and it’s exactly what you need after a long, hot summer’s day. Or y’know, any time of day, just because.

Let’s dive in. No-one likes a talker, right?

How to Make a Blue Frozen Margarita Cocktail UK

I’m not going to tell you a story about how I visited my grandmother and discovered this recipe for an alcohol-free boozy beverage. I don’t have a story behind it. I just don’t drink, but I still want to enjoy a cocktail from time to time. This one just so happens to be my favourite.

Let me share the recipe with you.


The following is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to make one cocktail. Don’t be afraid to play around a little, to find a flavour that works well for you. Taste is subjective, after all.

*If you don’t have limes or lime juice, you can use lemon-limeade as substitute. Just add a teaspoon of lime cordial if you want a stronger flavour.

**Optional, for garnish.


To make your life easier, get the following things to hand before you start whipping those bottles around in the kitchen:

  • Chopping board
  • Sharp knife
  • Margarita glass (or your favourite glass)
  • Cocktail shaker (or clean, empty jar/similar)
  • Cocktail strainer
  • Ziplock bag + rolling pin (DIY crushed ice)


You can use any ol’ kind of glass you like for this drink, but it does look pretty good all dressed up in a margarita glass, in my opinion. You can also decorate it however you like, but we’ll get to that in just a moment.

Step One: Chill the Glass

It’s always good to start things off by chilling your glass, especially as this is a frozen drink. Simply get your glass and fill it with ice. It doesn’t need to be crushed ice; you can pour out the ‘cooling’ ice and use new crushed ice for the cocktail if it melts.

Step Two: Glass Prep

As the glass is chilling, it’s time to get the garnish ready. You can use a wide variety of things from sea salt to cake-decorating sprinkles, popping candy, and anything else you can think of. If you can get it to stick to the glass, you can use it to decorate the rim of a glass.

Step Three: Mix the Ingredients

It’s time to grab your cocktail shaker, empty and clean jam jar, or whatever else you’ve decided to use in place of a cocktail shaker.

In it, add the alcohol-free tequila, lime juice, and blue curaçao syrup. Basically, everything except the ice and the garnish.

Cocktail Shaker and Kit

Put the lid on the container you’re using and check it’s on tight so mocktail doesn’t end up all over your walls and ceiling. (Mistakes have been made in my house.)

When you’re ready, shake that thing like it’s the best home workout you’ve ever had. Really get into it and shake it up well. Shake it like a polaroid picture, as Outkast once said.

Step Four: Pour, Pour, Pour

It’s time to put the crushed ice into the glass that should already be rim-decorated. If it’s not already filled with crushed ice, now’s the time to get rid of the ‘cooling ice’ and replace it with the crushed stuff.

If you don’t have a crushed ice machine, grab regular ice, pop it into a Ziplock bag, and bash it with a rolling pin. The finished product is crushed ice… and you get to vent some anger.

The non-boozy beverage should be poured through a cocktail strainer, to make sure there’s nothing lumpy or unpleasant in there that might ruin the experience.

Step Five: Garnish

If you have a slice of lemon, pop it on the glass. If you’re all about the lime, add a wheel of that instead. The garnish is down to you and your preferences – pineapple, cherry, olive, whatever you like best.

Step Six: The Best Bit

It’s now time to enjoy your non-alcoholic blue frozen margarita cocktail. You’ve earned it!

Take a seat, take a sip, and allow yourself to relax. Alternatively, crank up the music and go a little crazy.

Tips & Substitutions

This drink can be a bit on the tart side, but you can always add lemonade, or lemon-limeade instead of lime juice if you want it lighter and fizzier. Alternatively add a bit more of the blue curaçao syrup and a little less lime juice.

In my opinion, experimenting is the best part.
