Ingredients

Blackberry Puree:

2 pints fresh blackberries

1/4 cup sugar

Juice of 1/2 lime

Lime Sugar:

2 cups sugar

Zest of 3 limes

1 lime wedge

Margaritas: 

2 cups tequila

1/2 cup triple sec

1/2 cup sugar

2 limes 

Ice

Directions

  1. For the puree: Add the blackberries to a medium saucepan with the sugar and lime juice. Cook over low heat, covered, 20 to 25 minutes. Strain using a fine mesh strainer, pressing the berries to extract as much juice/puree as possible. Place in the fridge to cool completely.
  2. For the lime sugar: Mix together the sugar and lime zest. Use a piece of lime to moisten the rim of each margarita glass, and then dip in the lime sugar.
  3. For the margaritas: In a blender, add 1 cup of the tequila, 1/4 cup of the triple sec, 1/4 cup of the sugar, and the juice of 1 lime. Fill the blender with ice and blend until smooth. Then add as much blackberry puree as desired, 1/3 to 1/2 cup. Pour into 4 rimmed glasses and serve immediately. Repeat with the rest of the ingredients for the other 4 glasses.
