Seriously, on a hot Summer’s day, what’s more refreshing then nice, cold, icy, Blackberry Margaritas?! Nothing that’s what!
I am going to really take the “It’s five o’clock somewhere” saying to heart here and tell you that I am truly in love margaritas. There is just no wrong time of the day for me to drink them (granted I am child free). But, with it being the 4th of July tomorrow, I thought what better way to celebrate!
With peak blackberry season almost upon us here in the Northeast, I have been just itching to make some super amazing Blackberry Margaritas, but now I have a good excuse (beside the holiday). My local supermarket just had a fantastic sale going on with blackberries and blueberries! I finally had a chance to stock up with out spending a small fortune.
I mean, as much as I do love a good berry margarita, I am not willing to spending nearly the same price as the alcohol cost me on ingredients! I am too cheap for that!
On small tip, make sure you have a decent working blender that can handle ice. The only reason I even mention this is because my last blender went up in smoke (literally) making margaritas. It just couldn’t hack it. I did happen to invest in the Ninja Blender with Auto-iQ technology and could not be happier with it! I actually just used the food processor attachment to make a large batch of cookies yesterday!
These Blackberry Margaritas are not only delicious, but they are almost to easy to make! Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself!
- 2 pints blackberries fresh or frozen
- 1/4 cup lime juice
- 2 cups ice
- 1 cup tequila
- 1/4 cup triple sec or other orange-flavored liquor
- 1/4 cup sugar optional
Place all ingredients in a smoothie-style blender and puree until smooth. You can serve with small pieces of ice or puree until the cocktail starts to melt.
Pour into a margarita glass and garnish with a slice of lime or a cocktail stick full of blackberries.
