Cocktail Time! Frozen Blueberry Margaritas!
I love blueberries and Alexis does too. Sometimes though we don't eat them fast enough and I often end up with blueberries in the freezer to keep them from going bad. The frozen variety are perfect for blueberry sauce, muffins, blueberry cheesecake, blueberry ice cream or even to eat as a nice little frozen treat, but why not take them to another level?
A few weeks ago I decided to make some margaritas, but I didn't want to make just the general version. I thought about many things and finally I thought it might be nice to throw in some frozen blueberries and see how that would turn out. It turned out well! If you like blueberries and want a margarita with a twist then this is the drink for you!
What You'll Need:
2 cups of freshly squeezed lime juice
1 cup of simple syrup
1 cup of triple sec
3/4 cup of tequila
2 cups of frozen blueberries (Note: These were local blueberries that I froze myself. In theory the ones you buy at the grocery store should work as well, though I haven't tried them.)
Organic cane sugar for rimming the glasses
Dump all of your ingredients into the jar of your blender and blend until mostly smooth.
I actually like little frozen blueberry bits in my drink, but if you want something a bit smoother then you can strain the mixture before putting it into the glass.
Wet the edge of your glasses and dip them into organic cane sugar. Pour the blueberry margaritas into the glasses and serve.
Notes: When I'm making a straight up margarita I prefer to rim the glasses with salt, but when it is a fruity version I prefer sugar.
