What is Blueberry Margarita ?
The blueberry Margarita is a twist on the classic Margarita, with blueberry syrup instead of agave syrup. The result is a fruity, flavorful cocktail that will come as a nice change from the usual Margarita.
Blueberry Margarita Cocktail Recipe
- 1.5 oz tequila
- 1.5 oz triple sec
- 1 oz lime juice
- 1 oz blueberry syrup
- granulated sugar for the rim
- Wet the rim of a rocks glass and dip it in granulated sugar. Set aside.
- In a shaker combine tequila, triple sec, lime juice, blueberry syrup, and ice. Shake very well.
- Strain into prepared rocks glass.
- This comes out pretty sweet, so the sugar rim is there mostly for decor.
- Some choose to use salt for the rim (because tequila) but I don't think that works here.
- I used a rocks glass but you can always use a Margarita glass instead.
When is this drink best ?
Blueberry Margarita works great as a summer cocktail, same as a classic Margarita. Only this time, the blueberry adds a nice fruity note that makes this cocktail even more fun.
I could see the blueberry Margarita as a dinner drink, or something to try out at your next date.
My thoughts on Blueberry Margarita
I found blueberry Margarita to be quite sweet, perhaps due to the combination of blueberry syrup and triple sec, which are both sweet and very flavorful. You can still taste the tequila flavor in this, but it’s not as noticeable as in a classic Margarita; the blueberry masks it quite a bit.
There is a slight tart note from the lime juice, which I think would be far stronger if you add less syrup or triple sec. Overall I wouldn’t class this as a tequila sour, compared to a Margarita.

Notes, substitutes, and tips
Blueberries have a subtler flavor than other fruits, so you might not be able to pick it out on your first sip.
