Blackberry Margaritas

After finding frozen seedless blackberry puree at a local Hispanic market, we decided to see what we could create with it. Jeff created Blackberry Margaritas to go with our braised chicken tacos tonight. It turned out to be both a beautiful and delicious drink. Dare I say we are also getting our antioxidants out of this? The leftover puree will likely be mixed with maple syrup tomorrow for waffles.

Blackberry Margaritas

In a cocktail shaker combine with crushed ice:
Juice of 1 lemon or 2-3 limes
3 T of seedless, unsweetened frozen blackberry puree (thawed)
2 T sugar (can add more sugar if you like it sweeter
2 shots Patron Citron
5 shots Jose Quervo Gold Tequila

Serve over crushed ice. Rim glasses with sugar/salt mixture if desired.
