Blackberry Margaritas

Happy Friday! I don’t know if it’s just me – or, has it been an especially long week for everyone? I thought nothing would be better to close out the week than a good cocktail! And, what better way to round out this week of blackberry posts than blackberry margarita? You guys know me, I always reach for the tequila first.

Thankfully, so does Shawnda – I don’t know there there is a fruit left under the sun that she hasn’t turned into a delicious margarita. Nothing but goodness in this glass – homemade margarita mix, tequila, triple sec, and blackberry  puree. I went ahead and put it through a fine mesh strainer, but I think they’d be fun to muddle right in the glass too. A blackberry mojito may or may not be in the works already…

    I love me a good margarita! This one sounds amazing and since I’m going to go out and buy blackberries to make your gorgeous dessert from yesterday, why not just save some and make this, am I right?!

    Its been a long week for me too – always getting back from a vacation is hard :( let’s hope next week is better!

    I tend to find blackberries so so seedy, that even though they taste great and have such special color, they come out lackluster to me. Did you find your drinks were seedy?

    With an extra moment of thought, I do suppose that one could just strain the blended mixture before moving on in the recipe…

    Looks fabulous! I’m going to try to make a “skinny” version of this and use Truvia instead of sugar. Thanks for the recipe! :)

    I see simple syrup in the directions, but not ingredient list – how much?

      To taste – start with a tablespoon and go from there!
