To get a half-salted rim, you'll need to start with a tablespoon of salt--but only about 1 teaspoon ends up sticking to the glasses.

Serves 8 (serving size: about 1/2 cup)

Ingredients

+ Add To Shopping List
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups blueberries, divided
12 mint leaves
1 1/2 cups silver tequila
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 lime, cut into 8 wedges

Preparation

Hands-on: 10 Minutes
Total: 10 Minutes

1. Combine 1 1/2 cups water and sugar in a container with a tight-fitting lid; seal. Shake 2 minutes or until sugar dissolves.

2. Thread 1/2 cup blueberries evenly onto 8 (4-inch) wooden skewers; reserve skewers for garnish.

3. Muddle remaining 1 1/2 cups blueberries and mint leaves in the bottom of a pitcher. Add sugar mixture, tequila, and lime juice; stir. Moisten half the rim of 8 margarita glasses; dip in salt. Discard remaining salt. Serve margaritas over ice; garnish with a lime wedge and blueberry "stirrer."
