Blueberry and Basil Margarita

Tomorrow is Cinco De Mayo so it only seems appropriate to share a margarita recipe with you this Friday. This is a little different than your typical margarita, but it sounds so delicious. We can’t wait to give this a try, once we are done with the work day of course 😉


2 oz. fresh lime juice
1½ oz. fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp. sugar
3 oz. fresh blueberries
4 basil leaves, plus 1 sprig
3 oz. reposado tequila
1½ oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. agave syrup


Boil juices and sugar in a small saucepan until sugar dissolves; cool. Pour syrup into a shaker with all but 4 blueberries and the basil leaves; crush with a spoon. Add tequila, Grand Marnier, and agave. Fill with ice, and shake. Strain into a highball glass filled with ice; garnish with remaining blueberries and basil.
