It’s not too often you’ll find me with a glass of anything in my hand other than wine, but after a solid hour of blueberry picking with friends in the Finger Lakes, I opted for something a little different. Just one day short of #NationalTequilaDay, I made a fresh batch of Blueberry margaritas to go with the taco night I requested for my birthday. (Major shoutout to my best friend for making my birthday dreams come true 😂!)
Anyway, this margarita is ridiculously easy to make, and tastes like you spent all day on it. Okay… maybe not that long… but you get the picture. Check out the recipe below and try it for yourself!
One batch | Serves 4
1 cup fresh blueberries
Juice of 1 Lime
1 and 1/4 cup tequila
6 tablespoons agave nectar
Optional: dash of orange bitters
Directions: Rub the rim of the glasses with a lime wedge before flipping over to coat in sea salt. Add ice. In a cocktail mixer, muddle together the blueberries and lime juice until the blueberries are all crushed and the juice turns a dark purple color. Next, add the tequila, agave nectar and bitters (optional). Once that’s done, give everything a good few shakes and pour into the glasses. Last but not least, add a few sprigs of mint to the top and serve.
