How do you make blueberry margaritas?

You’ll need some basic bartending tools such as a muddler, cocktail shaker, and jigger to make this simple blueberry margarita recipe.

  • Start by rimming the glass with sugar, yes you read that correctly, sugar. If you prefer a salt rimmed glass, use salt but I like sugar on fruity margaritas. Place granulated sugar in a shallow dish. To sugar the rim, move a lime wedge along the rim of the glass and dip the rim in the sugar.
  • Place the frozen berries and lime juice in a cocktail shaker and let stand for five minutes. If you use fresh berries you can proceed immediately. Using the back of a spoon or a muddler, muddle the berries and juice to break up the berries.
  • Add your favorite tequila, orange-flavored liqueur, simple syrup and ice. Cover with lid, shake and strain into a cocktail glass filled with ice cubes.
  • Garnish by adding extra blueberries to float in the glass. It’s an easy way to make the drink look pretty along with a lime wheel on the edge of the glass.

We went blueberry picking earlier this year so I used what I had frozen but fresh will work just as well. When I add a triple sec to a cocktail, I try to use a non-alcoholic one.

Why? Because triple sec is only a flavor, orange. I don’t need more alcohol in my drink when I want the flavor. Fresh orange juice makes the drink more acidic and I wouldn’t recommend it.

You can make a good margarita with either triple sec or an orange liqueur. This fresh blueberry margarita recipe is a great warm weather cocktail and while you can serve them anytime of year, they are ideal for Cinco de Mayo. Your friends will appreciate delicious blueberry margaritas.

If you prefer frozen margaritas, try frozen peach margaritas, or frozen mango margaritas.

What kind of tequila is best for a margarita?

A quality silver tequila is best for a margarita. Use something you would drink. If you’re making a top-shelf margarita, use a gold margarita.

Can I use a blueberry simple syrup for margaritas?

Absolutely! It’s easy to make blueberry simple syrup. Combine equal parts water, sugar, and blueberries and bring it to a boil, smashing berries as they soften. Reduce heat, stir until the sugar dissolves, and remove from the heat. Cool and strain into a clean jar. Store in the refrigerator.

How do you serve a margarita?

You can use a traditional margarita glass or a rocks glass like I have in the photos above. Not everyone likes a sugar or salt rim so feel free to omit rimming the glass.
