Blackberry Lime Margaritas
Blackberry lime margaritas are a great summer cocktail, perfect for a BBQ, cookout, or just sipping on the porch!
- 6 oz. (1 heaping cup) blackberries
- 1/3 cup fresh lime juice from about 2 limes
- 2 tablespoons simple syrup or agave syrup
- 1/4 cup tequila
- 2 tablespoons Cointreau or Grand Marnier
- sparkling water optional
- ice and lime slices to garnish
Add the blackberries to the bowl of a food processor and puree until smooth, or crush them by hand in a small pitcher or bowl with a muddler or the back of a spoon.
Prepare a small pitcher or bowl with a fine mesh strainer set over top. Press the blackberry puree through the strainer to remove most of the seeds and pulp. (This is optional, if you aren’t bothered by having the seeds and more texture in your drink.)
Add lime juice, syrup, tequila, and Cointreau or Grand Marnier to the strained blackberry puree. Stir well.
Fill two serving glasses with ice, and pour over the drinks. Add a splash of sparkling water, if desired. Garnish with lime slices and additional blackberries, and serve.
