Blueberry Margarita

Blueberries give this margarita a great tartness and beautiful color.

Blueberry Margarita

The best cocktail on the face of the earth—margaritas!

Am I alone in thinking that margaritas are the most delicious adult beverage? Especially frozen and with lots of salt. I typically order just plain lime margaritas (or jalapeño, because spicy drinks are SO good…), but every once in a while a fruity craving hits, and the result usually ends up on the blog.

I love the blueberries in this even more than I thought I would. Blueberries aren’t super duper sweet, and they are actually a little tart, so they work kinda, totally, perfectly paired with lime in a margarita.

Plus, the whole things turns out a rich dark blue color that is just gorgeous to look at, especially against the bright green of a lime wedge.

Like I said, I am obsessed with tons of salt with my margaritas, so I coat the rims of my cups with lots of kosher salt (and use a little agave to help it stick). But, if you’re not into that, it would also work really well with some coarse turbinado sugar, for a sweeter effect.

Also, I used frozen blueberries in these, but you could definitely use fresh! I also think this would be great with blackberries or marionberries.
