Okay. I know I don’t normally post cocktails on this blog but this one really needs it’s own special section and recognition. Seriously. Two days ago (I’m losing all track of time), Morgan and I made blue cheese burgers, a yummy Cape Cod salad with apples, cranberries and feta, and……blackberry margaritas.
The burgers were fabulous but the real star of the evening were the blackberry margaritas.
In my former life, I’d been banned from Tequila
. However, all bets are off in Texas and I’ve rekindled my love for the wondrous juice that hails from that spiky little plant in the desert. Wine in Sonoma? What’s that? Where’s that? I don’t even know who I am anymore.
Okay fine. So I’ve been drinking margaritas here because I decided I needed to better be on Almanzo’s level. You know, with all the pain pills and stuff. Don’t judge me!! Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Just please make these margaritas for your next party….or happy hour. Morgan and I were shocked at how utterly delicious they turned out and each drank two. But that’s off the record…like I said, all bets are off.
1 shot triple sec
3 shots tequila
1/2 shot black current liquor
1/2 cup blackberries
1 6-ounce can limeade
1 cup crushed ice
Combine the all ingredients in a large pitcher. Using a big wooden spoon, muddle the blackberries so they are pretty much all crushed up in the drink. Serve with additional blackberries and a lime wedge.
Do you have a tequila horror story? Let’s hear it.
