As summer's sweltering heat ushers in this weekend's Father's Day festivities, I'm tempted to make a pitcher of these juicy wild blackberry margaritas to help cool me down. Every summer, while my hubby casts his line, I'm eyeing the thorny bushes dotting the American River trail where we live. Vibrant and bursting with so much juicy flavor, these prickly berries will no doubt stain my fingers and make my lips pucker, but I love them...everything about them!
Wild Blackberry Margarita
- 1 handful wild blackberries, macerated
- 1 part tequila
- 1 part cointreau
- 1 lime, juiced
- 2 tsp agave nectar
- 3 ice cubes
- margarita salt to rim edges of glass
- extra blackberries & lime wedges for garnish
- Combine all in a cocktail shaker. Shake, shake shake! Pour into a glass rimmed with salt, and garnish with lime wedge + blackberries, and you know what to do! Cheers!
