Blueberry Margarita – A beautiful and tasty summer cocktail made with fresh blueberries, lime juice, tequila, triple sec, and simple syrup. A fun spin on a classic margarita!
Margarita season has come a bit early to my house because here in Michigan, we have been oscillating between days that are lovely and feel like spring and snow. To help make it feel like it is actualyl warm out, I’ve been making fun, summery margaritas like this blueberry margarita and my strawberry margarita from a few weeks back!
Now to make a blueberry margarita, you need just five main ingredients – blueberries, tequila, lime juice, triple sec, and simple syrup. The simple syrup helps sweeten the drink up without impacting the flavor and you can either make it in about 5 minutes at home by clicking HERE for the recipe or you can buy it at most grocery stores for a few dollars. I like serving these margaritas with a slice of lime on the rim and lining the rim with salt. It makes for such a beautiful and festive drink!
I made this margarita over the rocks by blending the blueberries and simple syrup together but you could also just blend all of the ingredients together and make it a frozen margarita. There are instructions for both versions in the recipe below. Additionally, this recipe makes one serving but you can just scale it up if you want to make this recipe for more people.
Common Questions About Making a Blueberry Margarita
What is a blueberry margarita?
A blueberry margarita is a classic margarita with blueberries added into the drink. It is mixed together with simple syrup, tequila, triple sec, and lime juice and served.

Either! Both will work totally find for this drink so whichever you have on hand.
How should I serve a margarita?
Now there are three main ways to serve a margarita – shaken with ice and served over ice, shaken with ice and served with no ice, or blended with ice in a blender. Because of the addition of blueberries into this margarita recipe, I suggest blending it. If you don’t want to blend it, then make a blueberry puree in the blender with a little bit of water and then use that in the other methods as it will be a liquid.

There are so many different types of margaritas! Some of my favorites include –
- Strawberry Margarita
- Italian Margarita
- Cara Cara Orange Margarita

How do I get salt to stick to the rim of a glass?
Run a wedge of lime around the rim or dip it in simple syrup before running it through a pile of salt on a plate. These will all help the salt adhere to the glass.

Any other fruits will taste great added into this margarita like other berries, pineapple, oranges, etc. Just add whatever else you want in when you blend it.

Blueberries are one of my favorite things to add to drinks or bake with! Some of my favorite blueberry recipes include –
- 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh or frozen)
- 2 ounces tequila
- 1 ounce lime juice
- 1 ounce triple sec
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
