Blueberry Margaritas

I've been on a summer vacation of sorts from blogging for a while, so I thought I'd jump back in with something refreshing :)

A. and I made some blueberry margaritas the other day, inspired by some strawberry and raspberry ones that we had at a local Mexican restaurant. They turned out to be pretty tasty!

We kept the ingredients simple: blueberries, lime juice, lemon juice, agave nectar, and teqila.

A. got this new gadget, the Magic Bullet, that pulverized the blueberries for us. It's a neat little thing, great for smoothies.

(Since we didn't really keep track of the ingredients, and the proportions are really a matter of taste, I'm just putting down the ingredient list!)

-Blueberries, washed and pureed
-Fresh lemon juice
-Fresh lime juice
-Agave nectar (you can also use honey or simple syrup)

Mix all ingredients together and serve over ice, with or without a salted rim. Relax and enjoy!

Sounds delicious! Pour me one please.

I recently tried a Pineapple/Chipotle margarita that was to die-for at a Mexican restaurant. I've been wanting to try it home, maybe now I will.

Welcome back to blogging!
