    I put a new spin on this classic cocktail by incorporating fresh blackberries to provide natural sweetness while simultaneously upping the nutrition ante. Made with just 5 simple ingredients, this lovely libation contains 5 whopping grams of filling fiber and a ton of delicious flavor. Plus, the blackberries provide a nice dose of vitamin C, brain-boosting antioxidants…and a built-in snack. Cheers to superfood cocktails!

    • • ¾ cup fresh blackberries, divided
    • • 1 tablespoon lime juice
    • • 1 ounce tequila
    • • 1 to 2 teaspoons honey
    • • ¼ cup sparkling wine or champagne
    • • ½ cup ice cubes

    In a glass, lightly muddle ½ cup of the blackberries with the honey and lime juice using a wooden spoon. Add the tequila, ice cubes, and the remaining ½ cup blackberries (leave them whole) and gently stir. Top with the sparkling wine or champagne. For an extra-special touch, line your glass rims with salt or sugar before making your cocktails.


    Blackberry Margarita

    Today is National Margarita Day woo hoooo. So how do you like your margarita? Classic, fun and fruity, hard and unique. Oh, me you ask?

    My faaaaavorite margarita is blackberry margarita….mmmm mmmm mmmm. I could drink pitchers full of this stuff. I guess that has a lot to do with the fact that my favorite berry is blackberry. So ANYTHING that features this juicy, dark berry has my vote, including this amazing, easy blackberry cobbler. I’ve tried several times to plant blackberry bushes but for some reason, they just don’t want to grow for me.

    Oh well, thank God for farmers’ markets because every year I stock my freezer full of fresh blackberries so that I can enjoy them all year long.

    So today in honor of National Margarita day I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes for blackberry margaritas (thanks MyLifeAsAMrs. for this amazing recipe.) (slightly adapted) Adjust the alcohol/sweetness to suit your fancy.

    SIMPLE SYRUP RECIPE: To make 3/4 cup of simple syrup add 1/2 cup sugar to 1/2 cup of boiling water. Stir until sugar has dissolved.


    1. Combine the alcohol, juices, honey and 1 ½ cups blackberries in a blender or food processor and process until smooth. Strain the mixture over a pitcher to discard the solids.
    2. Rub edges of glass with a lime and dip in either some sugar or salt or a combination.
    3. Serve the margarita in glass over ice and garnish with lime and remaining blackberries.

    Silver tequila is bottled right after the distilling process, giving it a stronger agave flavor. Gold tequila is either aged in barrels or has caramel coloring added. With that said, silver tequila is not only cheaper but better for mixed drinks.

    I just like the flavor of honey in this margarita but you can also use sugar or take the time to make a simple syrup.

    If you don’t have fresh blackberries, frozen blackberries will work fine.

    If you want a frozen margarita, just add about 5 cups of ice to the blender and blend with the other ingredients.


    Blackberry Margaritas

    Put the blackberries, 1/2 cup sugar, and juice of 1 lime in a saucepan. Bring it to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce the heat and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes until thick. Strain through a fine mesh strainer, pressing to get all the liquid out, then place the liquid in the fridge and chill until cold.

    To make the lime sugar, zest the 3 limes and lay out on a paper towel to dry for 30 minutes. Add the zest to 1 cup of sugar and mix together. Rub a lime wedge around the rims of margarita glasses and dip in the sugar to coat.

    To make the margaritas, fill a blender with ice. Add half the tequila, half the triple sec, the lime juice, and half the blackberry puree. Add a little more sugar if desired. Blend until totally combined and serve. Repeat with another blender full of ice, the rest of the tequila, triple sec, and blackberry puree!

    These are utterly delicious!

    Today is May 5th&mdashalso known as Cinco de Mayo! And while it obviously isn&rsquot the most sacred of holidays in our country, it is a great day to celebrate Mexican culture&hellipand Mexican food! Before I start with today&rsquos big, beautiful margarita recipe, here&rsquos my Cinco de Mayo category where I have all the Mexican/Tex-Mex recipes on this site in one place:

    From guacamole to Pollo Asado, there&rsquos lots of good stuff there!

    And speaking of good stuff&hellipif you think you love margaritas now, just wait until you try this one. Gorgeous, colorful, refreshing, delicious&hellipand purple! You&rsquoll be filled with love immediately.

    Note: Tread lightly&hellipand sip slowly! They taste so good, it&rsquos easy to forget there&rsquos booze in there.

    Another note: For a non-alcoholic version, just sub ginger ale or 7-Up for the booze!

    Throw some blackberries into a saucepan. These are juicy, lusciously fresh ones, but you can use frozen if you can&rsquot get fresh!

    Next, add some sugar. This is a wonderfully sweet, tart, boozy drink.

    Then squeeze in some lime juice!

    Now just bring it to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Then reduce the heat and let them cook slowly for 20 to 25 minutes, until the mixture is nice and thick. (Note: This photo was taken about halfway through the cooking process. By the end, most of the berries will be broken up and the mixture will be more syrupy.)

    When it&rsquos ready, place a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and strain the berries, pressing to work out as much liquid through as possible. All that should be left behind are seeds and pulp.

    And this is what winds up in the bowl. Just a glorious, thick blackberry liquid. I use this same method whenever I make blackberry ice cream. (Oh&hellipthe glory. But that&rsquos another story for another time.) Just refrigerate this until it&rsquos totally cold. You can make it at least a couple of days before you need it!

    When it&rsquos margarita time, make some lime sugar to go around the rim of the glasses! Throw some lime zest on a plate of sugar. (I zested the lime, then laid out the zest on paper towels for about an hour to dry it a bit. Keeps it from getting clumpy!

    Then I just used my fingers to mix it around until the zest and sugar were totally combined.

    Rub a little wedge of lime around the rims&hellip

    Then dip the rim in the sugar&hellip

    Until it&rsquos coated in the lime sugar.

    I&rsquom definitely a sugar-on-the-rim person when it comes to cocktails. So much better than salt!

    When the glasses are all ready, fill the blender with ice and add some tequila&hellip

    And about half the blackberry puree, along with some lime juice.

    You can also add a little more sugar for a little more sweetness&hellipor you can always taste it after it&rsquos blended and add sugar if you think it needs it.

    Very pretty, perfectly drinkable, but neither my husband nor I loved it.

    Very nice drink. instead of going the sugar rout i added a splash of lime juice for slight citrus kick that you would look for in a marg.

    TASTY! Just a touch of spicy that lingers on your lips. You have to love that. Mash the berries well to get a good color and I needed to use some sugar, about half the amount. Make them double size to sit nice in a 5 oz martini glass. Don't forget to raise a toast!

    How to make a blackberry margarita

    Gather ingredients - blackberries, tequila, Chambord, pomegranate and lime juice.

    1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries. (photo 1)
    2. Pour in tequila. (photo 2)
    3. Followed by Chambord. (photo 3)
    4. Add more lovely dark color with either pomegranate juice or cranberry juice. (photo 4)
    5. A touch of the standard lime juice. (photo 5)
    6. And a little sweetness to smooth the drink out with some Grand Marnier. If you are not using Grand Marnier, you might want to add a touch of agave or simple syrup to take away some of the tartness.(photo 6)

    I like to garnish mine with a lime wedge, a fresh blackberry and, sticking with the seasonal theme, a hairy spider! Even better, if you can find some dry ice to add to the glass for an eerie foggy effect. Can you say spooky! These Black Widow margaritas are great to make for two but even better to make for a crowd. They're perfect for a themed party and they were a big hit when I made them for my son-in-law's birthday which falls on Halloween. Enjoy!


    Keeping it naturally sweet

    In many of our drink recipes, you’ll find we use maple syrup as a sweetener. We love using maple syrup because it’s a natural sweetener, and you can even find it locally. It also tends to sweeten drinks more gently than sugar. A nice thing about using maple syrup for drinks is also that you don’t have to make a simple syrup – so it saves a step! This blackberry margarita has no refined sugar but is naturally sweetened to perfection.


    BLACKBERRY MARGARITA MIMOSA FOR A CROWD

    This easy, tasty, and fully leaded margarita mimosa offers the perfect presentation to your guests. Sweet, refreshing, light and the quintessential cocktail to whip up.

    Can&rsquot decide what type of drink you want to make? Then mix two, and create a brand new cocktail to try out! That is what I did here, and I am so happy!

    Have you seen my Blackberry Margarita recipe I posted last week? Cause if not, you should definitely check it out. This is a twist on that little glass of amazingness.

    In fact, I have quite a few blackberry recipes here&hellip

    BLACKBERRY SEASON IS THE BEST SEASON

    It is prime blackberry picking season right now, and my family always heads out and picks a ton. These blackberries are plump, deep purple, and sweet as can be. From pies to drinks, I have been enjoying blackberries in all kinds of amazing ways the past month!

    I remember being a little girl picking raspberries as a child in my grandparent&rsquos huge raspberry patch. I&rsquod go out there and make a meal of it, and my Grandma would always have some put away in the freezer for me. One of my favorite treats was frozen raspberries, softened up a bit in the microwave, and then sprinkled with sugar. The juice from raspberries would pool in the bottom of the bowl and it is one of my favorite memories from my childhood.

    When we moved from Minnesota to Washington in 2006, I was so shocked at the sheet amounts and availability of blackberries out here! They are an invasive weed, and something you have to fight back, but for a few weeks a year there is literally unlimited amounts of berries you can pick, and it is one of my favorite things about living in the Puget Sound region.

    Blackberries have a much larger seed than raspberries, but the flavor is JUST as amazing. They are such tasty berries, it is hard to resist them.

    A LITTLE TART, A LITTLE SWEET, A LOT OF COLOR

    I love a classic mimosa or margarita, and I love things with a twist too, (see my raspberry margarita, pineapple prosecco cocktail, orange creamsicle mimosa, and cranberry orange mimosa) and but I was craving something a little more fruity and something that would stand out from a lineup of cocktails. I came to blend my love for margaritas and mimosas together and created this epic drink. I got creative and it paid off.

    The orange juice paired with the blackberry and lime really blend well and give you this fruity twist that puckers your lips a bit and brings you back for more. Not too sweet OR too tart, this is definitely a new favorite of mine!

    You could even line the glass with some salt or sugar for another dimension of flavor. These Margarita Mimosas (MARGaMOSA, AMIRITE??) are anything but boring, and I really think you guys will love it.

    Summer is getting closer to being over and soon we are going to start back to school shopping, and running on busier schedules. I want to squeeze out every single drop of summer I can before I see those leaves begin changing and fall and rain take over.

    We are hosting and attending lots of summer barbeques, dinner parties, and family gatherings. It has been a magical summer, to say the least, and we are not ready for it to be over! So don&rsquot mind me over here sipping on this satisfying cocktail to celebrate a summer well spent. I hope you&rsquoll join me for one!

    WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MARGARITA AND MIMOSA?

    A margarita is a drink that is a mix of tequila, lime, and sometimes other flavors like strawberry, mango, etc. It also is served with a sugar or most often salt-rimmed glass. A mimosa is a mix of chilled champagne and orange juice or other citrus juices. So as you can see this drink combines the orange juice and prosecco from the mimosa, and pairs it with other elements of a margarita.

    CAN YOU SUBSTITUTE THE ORANGE JUICE?

    Orange juice is one of the main ingredients most often in a mimosa. Some people don&rsquot love the flavor of orange juice, so you can switch it out for a lemonade, limeade, or even a raspberry lemonade. It will change the flavor pairing some but still should be really tasty!

    WHEN SHOULD YOU SERVE BLACKBERRY MARGARITA MIMOSAS?

    These are perfect anytime! Make them for a Mother&rsquos Day brunch, an evening barbeque, Mexican night, you name it! There is no wrong time to serve up these scrumptious drinks that everyone will love. I have made them even in the winter months for holiday gatherings and they are a nice change of flavor to give you that fresh fruit twist. Dig into that supply of berries deep in your freezer! You&rsquoll be happy you did in January when you need a little taste of sunshine!

    KID-FRIENDLY VERSION

    Yes, you can make these into a mocktail for kids and adults who don&rsquot drink. Just leave out the alcohol and you can even replace it with some lemon-lime soda to add some bubbles into the drink.

    A super easy and quick cocktail you can whip up in a hurry! Everyone who tries it is sure to fall in love with the sweet and refreshing flavors it brings to the table.


    How to make Frozen Blackberry Margaritas:

    In addition to the fabulous flavor, they&rsquore easy to make. Just place everything in a blender, pulse until smooth, and pour!

    I like to serve these with salt on the rim and a few frozen blackberries for garnish. However, straight out of the blender, sans garnish, is equally good.

    The recipe below serves six. So no matter how you like to celebrate (with friends or by yourself), there will be plenty to go around. Now let&rsquos take some time to celebrate life in the season we are in. Happy Summer, my friends!
