What Type of Tequila Should You Use For Margaritas?
You don’t have to break the super expensive tequila for this drink because the blueberry flavor really comes through. But I’m not saying that you shouldn’t use great tequila either, my wife always says that the best margaritas are made with Patrón…expensive, but the best!
So, have you heard about this crazy lime shortage? I went to the grocery store to get some limes for my recipes this week and there was a sign that said- Limes, 3 for $3. 3 limes for three dollars? This can’t be right, so I threw a bunch into a bag and went on with my shopping. Then I went to check out and it turns out the sign was right. I used to buy 8 limes for like 3 bucks, right? Apparently, due to bad weather, disease and the drug cartel limiting supplies, the prices of limes has gone through the roof.
When you order a gin and tonic at a bar next time, just watch, it might come with a lemon instead of a lime.
Do You Need Limes To Make A Margarita?
I had to make adjustments. What else could I use to make a margarita drink besides limes? Blueberries were my answer. I’m not saying that blueberries are cheap, but they’re never cheap unless it’s the middle of the summer and you catch them on sale.
I wanted to make this margarita to feel like a splurge. Not like you were getting ripped off paying $10.00 for a bag of limes. This Blueberry Margarita is easy to make and totally worth the 5 bucks for the blueberries.
Hopefully I’ve given you enough ideas to have some good drinks this weekend. If not, there’s always bourbon!
