Frozen Blackberry-Lime Margarita with a popsicle garnish- Sipping Pretty Friyay!

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!!


Blackberry-Lime Margarita is a perfect summer cocktail.

Ingredients:

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 Syrup:

1/2 cup of water 1/2 cup of granulated sugar 2 teaspoons of lime juice 6 oz of fresh blackberries

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. Add the water and stir to combine.

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.
