Easy Blackberry Margarita Recipe
The margarita was “invented” sometime in the early 20th century. Depending on whose account you read it was either the “Daisy” cocktail updated with tequila instead of the brandy the Daisy called for, or invented in the 30s in Mexico or California. While we will never know for certain who to thank for the creation of the ever-popular margarita, we do know that people have been constructing alternative creations to those early margaritas ever since it was invented!
Mmmm blackberries + margarita = two of my favorite things! (Click here to learn how to grow blackberry bushes!) Who else loves the slightly sweet, slightly tart taste of fresh blackberries? Paired with the slightly sweet, slightly tart taste of tequila? Oh my, is this one tasty blackberry margarita cocktail recipe.
Tips and variations for making this Easy Blackberry Margarita Recipe:
● You make this margarita recipe using a blender so this is a frozen blackberry margarita as opposed to over the rocks. While I give the recipe directions for the frozen version, you can definitely skip the blending though, and make this blackberry margarita as an over-the-rocks cocktail. Over the rocks means a mixed cocktail over ice cubes. You place the fresh ice cubes in your cocktail glass and then place the tequila, Chambord, and lime juice into a cocktail shaker. Pour over a fine-mesh strainer over the ice in the glass. Garnish with fresh blackberries and sliced fresh limes.
● It is also easy enough to double, triple, quadruple the recipe for parties and get-together with friends. The Chambord is a berry, berry good second liquor. And speaking of which… while I have not tried it, substituting raspberries for blackberries should work very well.
● There is a salted rim on the glass of this blackberry cocktail. The wet used is either the tequila or the Chambord, the dry used is corse salt. If you are unsure how to rim a glass, click here for easy directions on how to rim a cocktail glass.
● Even though this recipe contains fresh fruit, I would not call it a healthy margarita. It is not a skinny margarita either (which to me do not taste very good).
