Easy setup. The lady in my life asked for a drink, and found this recipe on Pinterest...
So we tested it out.
The Recipe according to the internet:
5 oz Silver Tequila
2 oz Blueberry Liqueur
4 oz Lime Juice
2 oz Triple Sec
2 cups of Frozen Blueberries
1 cup of Ice
*Toss it all in a blender, churn it up, and pray. Makes 3-4 servings.
+ ...this is...a rough sipper.
+ The lime is a bit too much here. Lime is supposed to elevate the Tequila's iconic bite, but something in here makes it a weird soup.
+ Triple Sec is a decent thing, but it can't do much against the blueberry mash.
+ There's a drink here, but it seems confused.
+ I disagree with the silver tequila.
In case it wasn't obvious, this did not succeed.
So, I fixed it.
4 oz GOLD Tequila (might I suggest Patron)
2 oz Blueberry Liqueur
2 oz Lime Juice (sweetened)
1 oz Dry Curacao
1 oz Sweet and Sour Mix
*Throw into a shaker with a few ice cubes, shake the hell out of it, and strain into two glasses.
+ Lovely and boozy.
+ Dry Curacao is a beautiful replacement for Triple Sec that maintains its flavor without overpowering, and you don't need as much for the same effect.
+ Sweet and Sour with the Blueberry Liqueur creates that "blueberry juice" sense that the original was going for, and true that there's no fruit in this, but isn't better to taste good anyway?
The shaker is better than the blender. It's a concentrated dose, so we're making and drinking less, BUT it's stronger, so take it with some food.
Enjoy your blueberries, and happy new year.

Hey dude! Would blue Curacao make an interesting color choice for the blue berry or is one one of the other things doing something cool?

Blue Curacao is more of a pungent orange, while Dry Curacao is smoother. I won't need its neon blue because the Blueberry liqueur takes care of the color palette as well as delivering that much needed blueberry flavor. IF you throw it in, replace the Dry Curacao with the Blue Curacao, and shake it well; I'm concerned it will add that all-too-familiar tiki bar flavor funk. Try it out, see what happens!
