I am a huge fan of margaritas. My go-to favorite is a classic margarita on the rocks (and don’t skip on the salted rim) but during the Spring and Summer, I switch things up and go with this refreshing frozen version. Today I am sharing a Frozen Blackberry-Lime margarita recipe that is tart and sweet, and salty all at once. And a fun bonus… it has a lime popsicle as a garnish. YUM!! So let’s get started!
Margarita 4 ounces of silver tequila 4 ounces of fresh lime juice 2 ounces of triple sec 4 ounces of blackberry syrup -recipe below Ice coarse salt and lime slices for rim blackberries and lime slices and lime popsicles to garnish
Blackberry Simple Syrup:
1/2 cup of water 1/2 cup of granulated sugar 2 teaspoons of lime juice 6 oz of fresh blackberries
First place the blackberries, sugar, and lemon juice in a medium saucepan over medium heat on the stove. Gently mash the berries to bring out the juices then add the water and stir to combine.
Next let the mixture simmer for about 10 minutes, occasionally stirring, until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup has thickened slightly. Allow the syrup to cool to room temperature, then pour into a container over a fine-mesh sieve to remove the blackberry seeds. Refrigerate for an hour. Store the syrup in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
Simple Syrups add so much to a cocktail. I recently made a Basil Blueberry simple syrup that is so so good.
Combine tequila, triple sec, lime juice, blackberry simple syrup, and ice in a blender, rim glasses with lime slices and salt. Next add the lime popsicles, pour margaritas over the popsicles, and garnish with lime slices and blackberries and most importantly, enjoy! Serves 2.
I can see these being served on the deck as the sun sets on a lovely summer day. Cheers to summer!
Until next time,
