Calling all berry lovers! This blueberry margarita recipe combines fresh berries with classic margarita ingredients for a refreshingly sweet and tart cocktail bursting with flavor. Impress your guests with this unique twist!


  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries, plus more for the garnish
  • 1 ½ ounces* tequila blanco or reposado
  • 1 ounce Cointreau (or Triple Sec)
  • ½ ounce lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup or agave syrup**
  • Kosher salt, for the rim (optional)
  • Ice, for serving (try clear ice)


  1. Cut a notch in a lime wedge, then run the lime around the rim of a glass. Dip the edge of the rim into a plate of salt (or for a festive look, use Margarita Salt).
  2. Place the blueberries in the bottom of a cocktail shaker, and muddle them until fully mashed. Add the tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker and fill it with ice. Shake until cold.
  3. Strain the margarita into the glass with the salted rim. Fill the glass with ice and garnish with a lime wedge and extra blueberries.
  4. Margarita pitcher variation: Mash 2 cups blueberries, then strain the juice into a pitcher. Add 1 1/2 cups tequila, 1 cup Triple Sec, ½ cup lime juice. and 1/2 ounce simple syrup. Add 3 handfuls of ice and stir until cold. Pour into glasses and serve.


*To convert to tablespoons, 1 ounce = 2 tablespoons

**Maple syrup also works as a natural sweetener for margaritas; it adds a nuanced sweetness without tasting like maple.
