3/4 cup superfine sugar

1/3 cup orange-flavored liqueur (such as Grand Marnier)

2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest, plus 1/3 cup fresh lime juice (from 4 limes)

Mezcal, for topping (optional)


  1. Combine the blackberries, 2/3 cup water, the tequila, sugar, orange liqueur and lime zest and juice in a blender. Blend until smooth and the sugar dissolves.
