I am so excited summer is heading our way. I know, I know, it does not seem like it today, but it will be here like overnight. I look forward to backyard BBQ’s and having friends over for some cool drinks.
I came across this recipe for a blueberry margarita. I love blueberries. This will be my summer drink, or at least to kick of the MDW (Memorial Day Weekend).
Combine ice, blueberries, blueberry nectar, seltzer, limeade, lime juice and tequila, if using, in a blender and blend until smooth. Rub rim of 2 glasses with lime wedge and dip in salt. Divide the margarita between the prepared glasses and serve.
2Cups Water…….2 Cups sugar……1/2 cup roughly chopped fresh mint leaves…..32 fluid oz Kentucky bourbon…8 sprigs mint leaves for garnish….crushed ice….. straws
Combine water, sugar and chopped mint leaves in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat until sugar is dissolved. Allow syrup to cool for about 1 hour. Pour syrup through a strainer to remove mint leaves…….Fill a large pitcher with crushed ice and pour bourbon and syrup. Stir well….. Pour into 8 chilled glasses, top with sprigs of mint.and a straw….. Sip and enjoy the races………then make some popcorn and enjoy the movie!
Thanks to my friend Joey B. from work, “Let It Ride ” has become a favorite movie of mine…..hope you enjoy it as much as I do….. if you never saw it – do 🙂
