Frozen Blackberry Margarita

We have been having fun this summer branching out from our usual cocktails. I am not usually partial to a frozen margarita, but this slushy one was tasty and had such amazing color! Perfect for a summer night.

This recipe was adapted from the New York Times. We made them a little sweeter by using agave nectar instead of simple syrup, and slightly less potent. Fabulous.

Yield: Makes 1 large or 2 small drinks

  • 6 large blackberries, plus 1 (or more) to garnish each drink
  • 1 1/2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce Grand Marnier or Cointreau
  • 2 T lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • 2 T agave nectar or simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups ice
  • mixture of coarse salt and coarse sugar for glass rims
  • lime wheels, optional
  1. Blend all of the ingredients (except garnish: salt, sugar, lime wheels) until smooth and frosty. (I used a Vitamix.)
  2. Run a lime wedge along rims of margarita glasses and dip into salt-sugar mixture.
  3. Pour the blended drink, garnish with blackberries and lime wheels, if desired.

    I’m going to try this ASAP. Our neighbor has a huge blackberry patch. There was only one part of the recipe I didn’t understand… What is a ‘small drink’? =-D
