Ingredients

Margarita (makes one, multiply as needed)

  • 1-2 ounces silver tequila
  • 2 ounces freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces blackberry syrup see recipe below
  • 1 teaspoon orange liqueur I used Grand Marnier
  • Granulated sugar and lime slices for rim of glass
  • Additional blackberries and lime slices for garnish

Blackberry syrup (makes 1 1/2 cups) :

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 oz container fresh blackberries

Instructions

Margarita:

  • Combine tequila, lime juice, blackberry syrup, and orange liqueur. Adjust to suite your taste.
  • Run a lime wedge on the rim of the glass, and dip the rim of the glass in granulated sugar. Add ice to the glass and pour in the margarita. Garnish with blackberries and slices of lime.

Blackberry syrup:

  • Bring water and sugar to a boil. Boil briefly, until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool slightly. In a blender or food processor, puree the syrup and blackberries until smooth. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, discarding the seeds. Place the syrup in the refrigerator to chill completely.

Notes

If you have any blackberry syrup leftover, it's a great topping for pancakes, waffles, and french toast.
