Any student, staff or alumnus from the University of Florida will be familiar with the famous sports drink invented at the school and named after the football team’s mascot: the Gator. Make this to celebrate your college days (where you might have improvised a similar drink at the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party”) — it’s surprisingly tasty and an orange-slice garnish tips it over the top.
cup blue sanding sugar
cup kosher salt
bottle (20-oz) blue sports drink, such as Cool Blue Gatorade ®, chilled
cup thawed frozen limeade concentrate
cup silver tequila
cup blue curacao
Fresh orange slices, for serving
Mix the sugar and salt in a shallow dish. Wet the rims of 4 to 6 rocks glasses with water and then dip in the sugar-salt mixture to coat.
Combine the sports drink, limeade concentrate, tequila and blue curacao in a large pitcher and stir. Fill the rocks glasses with ice, pour the margarita over and garnish each with an orange slice.
