If you had to pick one kind of cocktail that was your go-to cocktail when you're at a nice restaurant, or a dive bar, or anything in between... what would it be? For me... it's a margarita of some sort. I like them with silver tequila, no crazy sweeteners, a splash of sparkling water on top and a salted rim. It's my go-to anytime we're having a cocktail or two and these Blackberry Margaritas are my current front runner.

Muddled blackberries give this that extra punch of flavor and a lot of color! Add to that some Cointreau to smooth it out with the tequila and you're in business.

  • 4 ounces tequila
  • 2 ounces lime juice

  • Run a wedge of lime across the top of 2 glasses. Once damp, coat the rim in salt.

Not everyone loves salt on their margarita so you can always make your rim smaller.
