Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe reminds me of my five friends from junior high and one of our reunions in Oceanside, California. It can be served as a left over without tequila for breakfast!


Ingredients You'll Need

1-1/2 to 2 cups fresh blackberries, rinsed and drained
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 lemons (use Meyer lemons if possible)
4 tsp blackberry puree
4 ounces prepared lemonade (homemade or store bought)
4 ounces good quality silver tequila


Directions

Process blackberries in a blender until smooth.


Place a wire mesh colander over a small bowl and pour the blackberry puree into the colander, pushing it through the wire mesh and into the bowl with the back of a spoon.


Add 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar to the seedless puree and stir to combine.


Taste and add additional sugar if desired.


Cover bowl and refrigerate puree until ready to make cocktails.


Place 1/4 cup sugar on a small plate.


Add the zest of one lemon and mix to combine.


Run the cut side of a lemon lightly around the rim of your margarita glasses and then dip the moistened rim into the sugar/zest mixture to coat the rim.


Fill each glass about half-way with ice.


Fill a cocktail shaker about 3/4 full with ice.


Add 2 teaspoons of the blackberry puree, 2 ounces lemonade, and 2 ounces silver tequila.


Squeeze in the juice of 1/2 a lemon.


Place cover on shaker and shake vigorously.


Strain through the cocktail shaker over ice.


Garnish with a slice of lemon and a blackberry and serve.


Serve without tequila for a refreshing non-alcoholic drink


Pairs Well With

A summer barbecue
