Blueberry Margarita

This Blueberry Margarita recipe is a sweet and tangy cocktail that is certain to be the perfect addition to any summer day!

Warm weather is made for combining fresh fruits and tequila, am I right? If you are looking for other delicious margarita recipes like this, I recommend my Orange Margarita, Pineapple Margarita, and Frozen Coconut Margaritas from Scratch!

Another month, another margarita recipe!

You might be asking, if this is a blueberry margarita, why is it pink? I am with you! I wish blueberries were truly blue when you squeeze all the delicious flavoring out of them. Truly they’re more of a pinky/purple color. Also, for this recipe I chose to muddle the blueberries vs. blending them (because who has that kind of time when the patio is calling!) but you can blend or puree the blueberries to get more of that richer purple color to your drink.

I have definitely seen blueberry margaritas that are a sapphire blue which clearly have food coloring in them; but personally, I am not a fan because I think food coloring isn’t needed here.

How to Make a Blueberry Margarita

Assemble your ingredients. For exact amounts see the recipe card below.

Optionally, use lime slices to wet the rim of your glass and dip the glass into a bowl with a shallow amount of sugar to rim the glass with sugar.

In a cocktail shaker, add in the frozen blueberries. Using a muddler, muddle the blueberries until you have fresh squeezed blueberry juice.

Next, add in your ice, tequila, Grand Marnier, simple syrup, and lime juice into the cocktail shaker that has your muddled blueberries.

Cover and shake your cocktail maker.

Then, using a strainer, strain your shaker into your favorite glass.

Recipe Variations

Amount of Blueberries

This recipe calls for ⅓ cup of blueberries; however, feel free to add more to your liking!

Fresh vs. Frozen Blueberries

I use frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones to give it more of that pinky/purple coloring. Using fresh blueberries you will get the same taste, but the color will just be lighter when you make it.
