As the weather warms up, we start dreaming about those balmy summer nights spent sipping on refreshing drinks. And for summertime cocktails, it’s hard to think of a better flavor combination than blueberry and lemons. If you’re looking for a new cocktail to try out when the temperatures start to rise, you should check out this recipe for Blueberry Meyer Lemon Margaritas.
This margarita takes advantage of the wonderful sweetness of the Meyer lemon. These lemons are smaller in size than regular lemons and are typically grown indoors in pots. They have some of the acidity of other citrus fruits, but more sweetness than a regular lemon. That blend of tart and sweet makes Meyer lemons such a great addition to this blueberry-based beverage.
Meyer lemons are at their peak ripeness in the spring, so make sure to grab them at the store when you’re out and about.
As for the other ingredients you’ll need to make this marvelous margarita, they are easy to find and include:
- Triple Sec
- Salt (pink Himalayan or your choice for the rim of the margarita glass)
You will be making a blueberry-lemon simple syrup from scratch. It sounds fancy, but it only takes about 10 minutes and will truly elevate your margarita game. The recipe suggests making the syrup earlier in the day and letting it chill before you mix it up in your shaker with the other ingredients.
After everything is shaken to a perfect blend, pour it into your favorite salt-rimmed glass filled with ice, and raise a toast to a sensational summer party season.
