Blueberry-Lime Margarita

Reviews of this recipe were quite high. One person said they used 1/2 cup of tequila instead of 3 oz. The other issue seemed to be lack of "blueberry nectar" but apparently blueberry juice was readily available. I wonder what would happen if you used Rose's Lime instead of plain lime juice - I'll bet it would add a little more zing - maybe a little dash of apricot brandy on the top?
