Is everyone ready for blueberry season?   Here in South Georgia, we are! Blueberries can be harvested between April and late September so I am ready for the farmer’s market to start overflowing with fresh picked blueberries!  

My husband Brooks loves to eat them frozen. He will fill up a 22-ounce cup with frozen blueberries and sit and pop them in his mouth.  I could never get my youngest, Connor, to eat them until his “Mimi” called them “pops” and made them fun.  

Now he likes them…  Figures.  I think I have just enough left until we can go blueberry picking again to make a Blueberry Margarita!

I will still buy blueberries at the store when they are super cheap, as long as they are from a local source, and freeze them. They are so good for you and they make a tasty snack in the summer

If you don’t happen to have access to fresh blueberries, don’t worry.  I used frozen blueberries to make this blueberry margarita so I can make it all year long and I think everyone has access to frozen blueberries in their grocery stores.

Here are a few pictures from our blueberry picking from last summer!  I am using a bag of frozen blueberries from our haul.

Braxton couldn’t believe how big they were. Connor just wanted to keep the neck buckets and play with them in the tub! We filled up two of these buckets so we had a ton of blueberries!! I frozen them all for later use.

How to properly freeze blueberries

  1. wash and dry them on paper towels  
  2. lay flat on a parchment-lined or wax paper-lined baking sheet in a single layer
  3. place in the freezer until frozen solid
  4. when all the berries are frozen, transfer to a freezer bag and store until ready to make your drink or pop in your mouth

How to make blueberry puree

STEP ONE: Combine frozen blueberries and water in equal portions in a blender.

STEP TWO: Blend until the blueberries are broken down

STEP THREE: Store in the fridge until ready to use

How to make a blueberry margarita

This blueberry margarita has all the traditional flavors of the classic margarita with the tangy sweetness of blueberries.  I don’t use the “margarita mix” for this because I think it is too sweet and it usually has a lot of corn syrup/chemicals in it.

You don’t need to use the pre-made stuff as it is pretty simple to make a margarita with just a few ingredients.  Lime juice (fresh-squeezed is best), tequila, orange liqueur (triple sec) or you can use a bit of orange juice, and some simple syrup.

STEP ONE: Combine the tequila, blueberry puree, triple sec, simple syrup, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker. Shake until combined.

STEP TWO: Pour the soda into the shaker and stir by hand.

STEP THREE: Pour into 6 glasses with ice.

STEP FOUR: Garnish with salt, lime wedges, and frozen blueberries if you like. Enjoy!

How to serve a blueberry margarita

I like to make the blueberry puree when I am ready to serve the cocktails because it keeps them colder.

Smash some fresh or frozen ones to release the blueberry flavor in the cocktail shaker and then add the other ingredients.

Use the frozen blueberries as ice if you prefer not to use ice cubes all together.  I know that some people don’t like to use ice because it melts and waters down your drink but, quite frankly, I drink mine too fast for that to occur.

Grab your blueberry picking buckets (or shopping carts) and grab some blueberries.  This blueberry margarita should be in your hand PRONTO!

Sorry that was a typo. It makes 6 margaritas when served over ice. If you use less ice you can increase the amount in each glass and make just 4.
