Course: Cocktail
Author: Lucy Parissi


  • flaked sea salt
  • 150 g | 5.3oz blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 2 measures 50ml | 1.7fl oz tequila
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp triple sec or Grand Marnier
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp agave nectar
  • 2 small basil leaves
  • basil leaves and lime wedges to garnish


  • Cut a wedge of lime and wipe it around the edge of your glass – either a margarita glass or whatever you prefer. Dip the glass into a plate filled with sea salt and set aside.
  • Put the blueberries (defrost them if frozen), agave nectar, basil leaves and lime juice in a cocktail shaker or glass and muddle them with a muddling spoon or the end of a rolling pin. Strain the blueberry pulp through a small sieve and press down with the back of a spoon to extract as much juice as possible from the berries.
  • Put the tequila, triple sec and blueberry juice in cocktail shaker half filled with ice and shake for 30 seconds.
  • Strain the cocktail into the prepared glass and add some cracked ice if you like. Garnish with a lime wedge and a small basil leaf.
