Thursday Tipple – Blackberry Margarita



Add straight to your cart from Quickbottle; Tequila & Cointreau

1 lime cut into wedges

1 1/2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

1 cup water

1/2-3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup tequila

3/4 cup Cointreau

3/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice

12 ounces (1 pint) fresh blackberries, plus more for garnish

Crushed ice


In a shallow dish, combine the sugar and salt. Rub the rim of each glass with the cut edge of a lime wedge. Dip the rim of the glass into the sugar-salt mixture; set aside.

In a sauce pan, combine the water and sugar. Heat on the stove on low until the sugar completely dissolves, 1-2 minutes. Stir and set aside to cool.

In a blender combine the syrup, tequila, Cointreau, lime juice, and blackberries; process until smooth. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a large pitcher, pressing on the solids to extract all the liquid (discard the solids). Serve immediately over crushed ice or refrigerate for several hours or overnight to allow the flavors to marinate. Then sip and enjoy!
