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)
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!
