Neato Bandito

Blueberry liqueur isn’t the most commonly used bar ingredient in the world, but it’s a fun liqueur to play with. The Neato Bandito makes great use of it.

The mellow sweetness of the blueberry liqueur gets sharpened by lime juice, and a pinch of salt brings all the flavors together. This is a fun drink anytime you’re in the mood for a blue cocktail, or something that uses tequila but isn’t a margarita. This is a fairly strong drink, so keep that in mind before ordering seconds.
