Drink of the Week: Blueberry Basil Margarita

Hoping to savor the last days of the summer season, we found ourselves on the Wildwoods Yacht Basin for this week’s first cocktail stop. We took a seat at The Boathouse’s extensive deck bar , craving a delightful signature unlike any we had yet tasted. The top contender to fulfill such a request? One of the latest additions to their cocktail menu – The Blueberry Basil Margarita.

Though it may sound like a strange combo, it is like the perfect hybrid of a maragarita, mojito, and the best flavors that Jersey fresh produce has to offer. Made with Jersey blueberries hand muddled fresh daily as well as fresh picked basil, sour mix, and lime juice, The Blueberry Basil Margarita awakens the taste buds and offers a refreshing escape from the summer heat. It is finished with a sugar rim for a sweet finish to complement the basil’s kick. The Boathouse, a family dining tradition since 1989, invites you to celebrate their 25th anniversary year with them with a Blueberry Basil Margarita in hand nightly from 4 to 5:30 p.m. At this time, The Boathouse offers diners a taste of their Anniversary Sunset Specials for two for just $25. Get “happy” on the deck from 4 to 6 p.m. daily for unbeatable waterfront views and the live sounds of talented local performers.
