Frozen Blueberry Margaritas

I have something real good to get you through this hump day!

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 oh mah gawd spicy drinks are SO good…), but every once in a while a fruity craving hits, and the result usually ends up on the blog. Most recently it was these Mango-ritas, and before that it was these Strawberry Key Lime Margaritas.

And now these…

Blueberries, lime, and just a touch of agave combine for a gorgeous and delicious margarita! | spachethespatula.com #recipeI 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.

Blueberries, lime, and just a touch of agave combine for a gorgeous and delicious margarita! | spachethespatula.com #recipeLike 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. Actually, the salt/sugar/lime blend I used on these would be totally perfect.

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

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

    Wow, that color is mesmerizing!! And the timing of this recipe is so perfect – I’ve been trying to use up my supply of frozen blueberries (from last summer!), but there are only so many coffee cakes I can eat before my pants don’t fit anymore 😉 This will help me go through the berries much more quickly!

      Bahaha I know the feeling, only I make too many muffins! And yes! These make it way too easily to go through frozen fruit. I tried it with marionberries and meyer lemon recently, and it was fantastic!
