Thirsty Thursday: Blueberry Margaritas

These seasonal blueberry margaritas are sweet, tangy, and refreshing. They’re just in time for porch sipping, late nights by the bonfire, and summer barbecue parties.

Cinco De Mayo wouldn’t be complete without a margarita, am I right?

Since summer is right around the corner and blueberry season is upon us, I decided to add a handful blueberries to the shaker with a few glugs of  tequila.

Magic… Pure margarita magic!

A few ingredients is all you’ll need to shake up these vibrant blueberry margaritas. I used a mixture of silver tequila, blueberry vodka (I prefer Stoli), fresh lime juice, and homemade blueberry simple syrup.

Add all of the ingredients to a shaker filled with ice and give the mixture a few vigorous shakes to combine. Pour the mixture over ice in a salt-rimmed glass and enjoy.

I find that these blueberry margaritas taste best by the pitcher. If you’re in a sharing kind of mood, margaritas for everyone!
