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