Kick off summer with this imaginative, refreshing drink.

We’re smitten with margaritas (and other quick cool-down tipples). RJ Mexican Cuisine in Dallas has a new favorite perfect for Memorial Day. It’s imaginative, it blends Mexico-Texas flavors, and, most importantly, it’s a refreshing way to kick off the summer.

Blueberry-Basil Margarita

½ ounce agave nectar
½ ounce lime juice
¼ ounce lemon juice
¾ ounce blueberry simple syrup (or blueberry honey)
1½ ounces preferred top-shelf reposado tequila
¾ ounce Grand Marnier
4 blueberries
2 basil leaves

Combine the agave nectar, lime juice, lemon juice, blueberry simple syrup, tequila, and Grand Marnier in a cocktail shaker. Shake.

Pour over ice and garnish with blueberries and basil leaves.
