Cinco de Mayo

I don’t know about you, but it felt like April lasted 100 days.  I woke up this morning and realized that Cinco de Mayo was only a couple of days away.  I decided to spend this rainy Friday creating a Blueberry Margarita.  Let me know what you think!

Blueberry Margarita with Blueberry Blossom Honey

1/4 Cup blueberries (I used some of our frozen Wild Maine Blueberries but you could make it with fresh berries as well)

2 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

1/2 Cup reposado or other tequila

3 Tablespoons Honey Simple Syrup (see below)

Kosher salt

Rub the rim of two glasses with lime wedges or lime juice.  Rub the rims in kosher salt to salt them.

In a cocktail shaker, muddle the blueberries and lime juice until the berries are mashed.  Add tequila, Honey Simple Syrup, and ice to a cocktail shaker.  Shake for 15 second, strain into the salted glasses and add a lime wedge.

It goes perfectly with our Blueberry Salsa & chips!

Honey Simple Syrup

Simple syrup is just 1 cup of sugar dissolved in 1 cup of water.  Bring it to a boil until the sugar dissolves, let it cool and you have what you need to make various cocktails.  Instead of sugar, I used a cup of our Blueberry Blossom Honey.  Bring to a boil, stirring until the honey is dissolved and let it cool.  Gives your drink a richer taste!
