Blueberry and Basil Margarita

Hello my zebras!

 

Let’s celebrate today – for no particular reason, just like that! Sometimes you just have to enjoy yourself and also pat yourself on the shoulder for enduring the madness of everyday life so well. So I think we all deserve a drink!

And that is why today I prepared a fantastic cocktail – colorful, fruity and delicious!

Blueberry and basil Margarita

For 2 servings

  • 300 g blueberries – fresh or frozen (defrosted)
  • 4 leaves of basil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 100 ml tequila
  • 3 tablespoons Triple Sec
  • Ice cubes or crushed ice
  • Salt

Lightly wet the rims of two cocktail glasses and dip them into salt to create a salt crust. Set aside.

Puree the blueberries together with the basil, lime juice and maple syrup and then strain through a fine sieve. Fill a cocktail shaker about halfway with ice. Then add the blueberries juice, Tequila and Triple Sec. Close the shaker tightly and shake until everything is mixed well.

Pour into glasses, if necessary top up with some more ice and garnish with fresh basil.

Hmmm… can you smell the blueberries? And from what time is it probably okay to approve of these splendid pieces: when is margarita o’clock?

Anyway, this drink is for us! Cheers!

Stay Sweet & HAPPY COCKTAIL MIXING!
