What you’ll need to make a Blueberry and Blood Orange Margarita

  • Blueberries: The blueberry flavor comes from the muddled blueberries.
  • Silver tequila: I recommend using silver tequila rather than gold tequila for this recipe because the flavor doesn’t compete with the fruity flavors of the margarita.
  • Orange liqueur: I used Triple Sec for this recipe, but feel free to use Grand Marnier or Cointreau. They all work perfectly for this recipe.
  • Lime juice: What’s a margarita without some fresh lime juice? The lime juice adds some needed acidity to cut the sweetness.
  • Simple syrup: Homemade blueberry simple syrup was used for this recipe which added some additional blueberry flavor. You are welcome to use plain simply syrup (homemade or store bought).
  • Carbonated blood orange drink: The carbonated blood orange drink makes this margarita extra special. I used San Pellegrino blood orange sparkling drink for this recipe.
  • Garnishes: The addition of a vibrant red blood orange slice, a slice of lime, and blueberries really make the final presentation of this drink pop!
  • Ice: This margarita is on the rocks and the drink definitely tastes better ice cold!
  • Salt and Sugar: You can line the rim of your glass with salt or sugar or omit the both of them completely.
