It's Summer Cocktail Time!

This week, we celebrate the 1st official day of Summer! 

School is out, the sun is shining (hopefully!), the days are longer and it's the perfect time to hang out with family and friends!

I'd love to share one of my favorite summer cocktails with you to enjoy this wonderful season.

Blueberry Lemonade Margaritas

FOR THE SYRUP
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. water
1 c. blueberries
Zest of 1 lime

 

FOR THE MARGARITA
2 tbsp. kosher salt
2 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 lemon, cut into wedges
8 oz. tequila
4 oz. triple sec
3 oz. lemonade
Ice        
  1.  In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine sugar and water and stir until sugar has dissolved. Add blueberries and lime zest and bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer mixture until blueberries have burst, about 5 minutes.
  2. Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes, then strain mixture into a clean jar. Let cool completely.
  3. On a small plate, stir together sugar and salt. Rim each glass with a lime wedge, then dip in sugar salt mixture. Divide tequila, triple sec and lemonade between 4 glasses. Fill each glass with ice, then top with blueberry syrup. Garnish with a lemon wedge and serve.
