Working for the Weekend!

This has been one of those weeks! Each day has been packed to the brim with loads of work, toting kids to and from an abundance of activities and I'll be heading to Chuck E. Cheese tomorrow night for my kid's spirit night.... so needless to say I am beyond ready for the weekend! I came across this recipe a few weeks ago and it reminded me of one of my mom's favorite cocktails served at Leaping Lizard Cafe in Virginia Beach.  I tested a batch out recently and it's definitely a recipe that will be on regular rotation for the Spring & Summer.

Happy Thursday, friends, we're almost to the weekend! Enjoy.

Combine 1 1/2 cups water and sugar in a container with a tight fitting lid, seal and shake for 2 minutes until sugar dissolves.

Muddle 1 1/2 cups blueberries and mint leaves in the bottom of a pitcher. Add sugar mixture, tequila, and lime juice, stir. Optional - moisten half the rim of margarita glasses, dip lightly in salt. Serve margaritas over salt. Garnish with a lime wedge and a skewer of the remaining blueberries.
