About the Blueberry Margarita

The blueberry margarita is a frozen, blended drink because when you muddle blueberries, you aren't going to get enough flavor or color from them once the drink is strained. However, you can make a blueberry margarita on the rocks by omitting the fresh or frozen blueberries and adding ½ ounce of blueberry liqueur and an additional ½ ounce of freshly squeezed lime juice. Shake it in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain over fresh ice. It's an equally delicious margarita that you can sip without a freeze headache if you drink it quickly.
