Blackberry Margaritas

With a week of what looks like cold weather ahead of us, I thought it would be nice to have a little summer preview in the form of a cocktail- Blackberry Margaritas. We get really enormous, plump, juicy blackberries around these parts in mid-summer. While they’re not my favorite berry, I greatly prefer blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, I do like to experiment with them in recipes.

Of course anything is going to taste good when mixed with tequila. At least in my opinion. But these margaritas are fantastic. And you have to love the beautiful, jewel-toned color. They turned out on the sweet side, but if you want to make them less sweet you can always add more lime juice or more tequila. I vote for more tequila!
