When juicing for this margarita I find it best to strain as bits of skin do linger. If you decide to add the pickled blueberries to your margarita be careful when mixing as you do not want to break apart blueberries in the cooking process.
If pickled blueberries are not your thing why not try frozen blueberries instead of ice? The color is intense and in using tequila blanco you can maintain the vibrant color. I rarely use tequila oro in my summer margaritas. I find them better suited for winter.
Of course feel free to experiment as these recipes are guides. Enjoy!
