Ingredients

    For the rim

    • lime wedge
    • 1/4 cup of sugar (I used maple sugar) or coarse salt

    For the jalapeño lime simple syrup

    • 1 cup water
    • 1/3 cup honey (or agave if you are ok with that)
    • 2 jalapeños, sliced
    • juice of 1/2 lime

    For the margaritas

    • 1 cup blueberries
    • 1/2 cup lime juice
    • 1 cup blue agave silver tequila
    • mint leaves, for garnish
    • lime wedges, for garnish

    Directions

    1. To make your life easier, get the glasses ready first then set in the freezer until you are ready with your drink. Use a lime wedge to wet the rim of a glass then place sugar or salt on a plate and dip the rim of the glass in it and all the way around. Then add crushed ice to the glass. Repeat with 4 glasses. Place in freezer.
    2. Place all the ingredients for the simple syrup in a small saucepan over medium heat, whisk and let simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat to let cool.
    3. Once slightly cool, remove 4-5 slices of jalapeño for garnish then pour the rest of the simple syrup into a high speed blender along with 1 cup of blueberries. Puree for almost 1 minute until everything is completely combine. Pour mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a jar.
    4. Fill a cocktail shaker with the blueberry mixture, lime juice, and tequilla along with a couple ice cubes. Cover and shake. Strain mixture into chilled glasses and garnish with blueberries, candied jalapeños, mint and lime.
