Ingredients
  

for small batch honey simple syrup :

  • 1/2 cup raw, local honey
  • 1/2 cup water

for each margarita :

  • 10 blueberries (small handful)
  • 5 cilantro leaves (very small bunch)
  • 1/2 ounce honey simple syrup or agave
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 ounce fresh orange juice fresh. fresh. fresh.
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila blanco (silver)

Instructions
 

for honey simple syrup :

  • Combine honey and water into a small sauce pan over medium heat.  Heat through, stirring occasionally, until the two blend harmoniously, about 5-7 minutes.  Remove from heat, let cool at least 20 minutes.
  • Keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

for each margarita :

  • Muddle blueberries and cilantro at the bottom of a cocktail shaker.  Add honey simple syrup, lime and orange juices, and tequila.  Fill the shaker with ice.
  • Cap the shaker and shake it like you mean it for at least fifteen seconds.  As the ice breaks, it will continue to break down the blueberries and release the flavors of the cilantro.
  • Once the shaker is too cold for you to handle, remove the lid and pour the contents directly into an old-fashioned glass.
  • Cheers!

Notes

You can substitute simple syrup for honey simple syrup.  Same process, just use sugar instead of honey.
OR you can just use agave instead of either. :)
