Fresh Blackberry Margarita

This blackberry margarita is super refreshing and maybe even a little less guilt producing. It's fairly low in sugar, and gets its sweetness from the fresh fruit. Rather than sweet and sour, it has a little added limeade concentrate.

This recipe is for a single cocktail, but it can easily be sized for a pitcher. Just puree the blackberries in a food processor or a blender with some of the lime juice and then strain. I think a blackberry garnish would be nice too. It can also be served straight up.

As Mr. Kitchen said when I gave him a taste, "there's a lot of flavors going on in here."

Berries are supposed to be really good for you, right? They are a super food... oh wait, that's blueberries. At least this week. So while the food / health experts work it out, I'll just sip one of these. Because you never know.

Fresh Blackberry Margarita


6 - 8 fresh blackberries
1 1/2 ounces white tequila
1 ounce triple sec, Cointreau, or Patron Cintronge 
1 ounce lime juice
1 1/2 tsp limeade concentrate
Sugar or salt for the glass rim
Lime wheel for garnish


  1. Rub the rim of a chilled cocktail glass with lime juice and dip the rim into sugar or salt.
  2. Muddle the blackberries in the lime juice and strain through a fine mesh strainer into an ice filled cocktail shaker or tall glass. Press down with the back of a spoon to get all of the lovely juice.
  3. Add the tequila, triple sec, and the limeade concentrate. 
  4. Shake or stir.
  5. Strain over ice into a "rocks" cocktail glass and garnish with a lime wheel.
