Today I’m sharing with you my latest inspiration using fresh blueberries from Florida and yellow lemons. Blueberries are a wonderful fruit for beverages and the tart flavor goes very well with Mexican Margaritas. And nothing better for 5 de mayo than celebrating with homemade margaritas. This is what you will need…
- 2 cups of fresh blueberries from Wish Farms
- 1/2 cup of freshly squeezed yellow lemon juice
- 1/2 of water
- 4 teaspoons of sugar on the raw
- 1/2 cup of tequila blanco
- Salt and ice
Preparation time: 5 minutes. Makes 4-6 drinks. Approximate cost per person $4.00 depending on ingredients market price. You will need a blender and margarita or martini glasses.
Combine all ingredients with the exception of the salt and the ice using the blender, until you a smooth watery consistency. Serve in a nice margarita glass with a salted rim.
If you love blueberries best way to keep them fresh long term is to freeze them here a tip from our Wish Farms friends:
In order to keep your berries from clumping together in the freezer we recommend rinsing and allowing to fully dry. Then, place the blueberries on a cookie sheet (or other flat surface) and put them in the freezer until frozen. Once fully frozen, transfer to a freezer bag until you’re ready to eat!
This Cinco de Mayo or for any other celebratory occasion enjoy this sweet tart cocktail with your guests, “Viva México”.
