Blackberry Margaritas

  • For the Blackberry Puree
  • 2 pints fresh blackberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • For the Lime Sugar
  • 2 cups sugar
  • Zest of 3 limes
  • 1 lime wedge
  • For the Margaritas
  • 2 cups tequila
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 limes
  • Ice

For the puree:

Add the blackberries to a medium saucepan with the sugar and lime juice. Cook over low heat, covered, 20 to 25 minutes. Strain using a fine mesh strainer, pressing the berries to extract as much juice/puree as possible. Place in the fridge to cool completely.

For the lime sugar:

Mix together the sugar and lime zest. Use a piece of lime to moisten the rim of each margarita glass, and then dip in the lime sugar.

For the margaritas:

In a blender, add 1 cup of the tequila, 1/4 cup of the triple sec, 1/4 cup of the sugar, and the juice of 1 lime. Fill the blender with ice and blend until smooth. Then add as much blackberry puree as desired, 1/3 to 1/2 cup. Pour into 4 rimmed glasses and serve immediately. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients for the other 4 glasses.
