Blackberry Margarita

Greetings, folks. It’s been a rough few weeks. How about a drink?

I’ve been wanting to play with my Leopold’s blackberry liqueur since my buddy and I had Rum Runners in Reno on a photo expedition to the desert. Blackberry liqueur (aka blackberry brandy; crème de mûre) is a great ingredient for winter cocktails, a little escape in the darker part of the year.

Blackberry Margarita

  • 2 oz reposado tequila (Hornitos)
  • 1/2 oz blackberry brandy (Leopold Bros)
  • 1/4 oz Cointreau
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
Shake with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Lime garnish. 

Big tequila up front gives way to blackberry somewhere in the middle. The housemate and I had a few of these over the course of chili night, and the food brought out the lime quite a bit.
