Mixologist Molly: Fresh Blueberry Margaritas

March4


In previous posts I have shown you how to make a Party size margarita, and a personal size margarita. Here I am going to show you the EASIEST variation of these super tasty drinks.

First, one of our BFFs is a berry farmer. Don’t be jealous, we often get cases of various berries…sometimes I cannot eat them fast enough. We were having our annual Christmas Tree Burning Bon Fire and I had made a batch of the Party margaritas. Then I realized that I had 4 clamshells of almost not good anymore blueberries. So I made a blueberry simple syrup to add to the margaritas….they were a HIT!!!

Mommy Bistro Note: I was there the night of the Christmas Tree bonfire. And I of COURSE had quite a few of these delicious cocktails alongside some delicious Mexican food. And in case you’re wondering – Christmas trees really do go up in flames in thirty seconds flat. I mean, the lighter fluid helped…

Ingredients:
Blueberry Simple Syrup
(use as many clamshells as you need, I used 2 for 4 of us and we drank ALL night)

2 clamshells of blueberries
1/4 sugar
water

Directions:
Add blueberries and sugar to a sauce pan. Then add just a bit of water, the blueberries have their own moisture so you don’t need to cover them with water. Bring to a boil, stirring as to not let the blueberries stick. Let them simmer until thick then strain through cheese cloth or a mesh collindar to get the blueberries out and you will be left with just the sticky yummy syrupy goodness.

you can do these a few ways:
Recipe for Party Margarita is here.
Party Margie 1- you can add the syrup to the margarita pitcher, stir and serve over ice.
Party Margie 2- (my fave) add ice to a glass, with a spoonful of blueberry syrup, add margarita and stir. i like this because of the cool swirly color combo that it makes. and also your guests can choose the sweetness that they like by adding more or less blueberry syrup.

Recipe for the Hand Shaken Margarita is here.
Skaken Margie 1 – add a spoonful of syrup to shaker with the Fresh squeezed margie recipe, shake and serve over ice.
Shaken Margie 2- (same as Party Margie 2) add ice to glass then add the amount of blueberry syrup that you like, then shake the margie separately and pour over ice/syrup.

serve with lime wedges and fresh blueberries on top :)

    I remember being in high school and going to our local mall just for Orange Julius. It was so cold, frothy and delicious. Our orange tree produces the best oranges and a TON of them. I thought, I can totally recreate the Orange Julius of my childhood. And I did. My girls are slightly obsessed […]

    Back in 2003 my good friend Kelli got married just a few short weeks before we did. We spent the week before her wedding with her family in Burlingame, CA. One morning, we came down to the most delicious smell. Coffee, something sweet, and of course mimosas. Kelli’s mom was whipping (literally) up a batch […]

    There are so many great activities for free in summer. We personally love the concerts in the park. Some fabulous cover band pouring their heart and soul into the 80′s, Chicago and Bon Jovi. Add in the fact that you can pack your own dinner and a couple bottles of wine; what more do you […]

It’s everything I wanted it to be. […]
