Strawberry Blackberry Margarita


Total Time:



Cinco de Mayo is in just 1 short week!!! Can you believe it! It’s one of my favorite holidays in the month of May. Well, that’s mostly because there aren’t really any other holidays in May that involve drinking large quantities of Margaritas and eating obscene amounts of guacamole all day long, but that is besides the point! Have I mentioned that I can consume an abnormal amount of guacamole in one sitting – I attribute that to being from the Southwest!

Strawberry Blackberry Margaritas

I come from Tucson, AZ where Cinco de Mayo was always a big deal. My friends and I were professional Margarita drinkers and makers. We learned from our parents as tequila just seems like the natural choice of alcohols in Arizona. Because of the dessert and the cactus ya know – it just seems right! This Strawberry Blackberry Margarita is one of my newest creations and it is just the right balances the sweet and sour tones with the tequila.

Cuisine Mexican


  • 2 large oranges seeds and peel removed and sectioned
  • 15 strawberries tops removed
  • 10 large blackberries
  • 7 shots Hornitos Reposado
  • 7 shots Sweet and Sour
  • 3 shots Triple Sec


  • Combine the orange slices, strawberries, blackberries, Hornitos, Sweet and Sour and Triple Sec into a large pitcher. Using an immersion blender, puree the mixture until it becomes smooth and all the fruit has been broken down. Serve with or without ice cubes (depending on how fast you plan to drink it!)
