Blueberry Pitcher Margaritas
4 cups tequila blanco
2 cups orange liqueur such as Triple Sec or Cointreau
1 cup lime juice
3 cups blueberries
A few sprigs of mint
Agave nectar or simple syrup, to sweeten if needed
Kosher or flake salt
Extra blueberries and lime wedges for garnish
Place the tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and blueberries in a blender and pulse 8 to 10 times. Allow the ingredients to infuse for at least 30 minutes.
Pour the mixture into a bowl, add the mint, and muddle together with a muddler, dowel, or a wooden spoon. Allow to infuse for about five minutes.
Pour the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher filled with ice. Press the solids with the back of a spoon to get all of the liquid out.
Give the margaritas a taste and stir in agave nectar or simple syrup to sweeten, if needed.
If you like margaritas with salt on the glass, then take a small plate or bowl and fill it with the salt. Next, take a glass and rub the rim of it with a wedge of lime. Dip the glass into the salt and give it a turn or two.
Pour the margaritas into the prepared glasses. Garnish with lime wedges or blueberries skewered on a cocktail spear or toothpick.
