Ingredients

Blackberry Puree Ingredients

  • 2 cups Fresh Blackberries rinsed and drained
  • 1-2 tbs Sugar

Blackberry Lemonade Margaritas Ingredients

  • 4 tsp Blackberry Puree
  • 4 oz Prepared Lemonade Homemade or store bought
  • 4 oz Silver or Blanco Tequila

Instructions

  1. Push blackberries through a fine-mesh sieve with a cocktail muddler or the back of a spoon directly into a glass. You could also puree them in a blender and strain them but this way you don’t need to wash your blender and it looks cool!

  2. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar (to taste) to the blackberry puree and stir to combine. 

  3. Cover the glass and refrigerate puree until you are ready for cocktails. The puree will keep for a day or two in the refrigerator. 

  4. Prepare lemonade if necessary. Then set aside.

  5. Run the cut side of a lime slice around your cocktail glass and then dip the glass in margarita salt or a 50/50 salt and sugar combo if you prefer.  

  6. Fill about half of your cocktail glass with crushed ice.

  7. Fill a cocktail shaker about 3/4 full with ice. Add 4 teaspoons of the blackberry puree, 4 ounces lemonade, and 4 ounces silver or blanco tequila. 

  8. Squeeze in the juice of a lime wedge or two.

  9. Place cover on the shaker and shake vigorously. 

  10. Strain through the cocktail shaker into your prepared glasses.
