This vibrant blackberry margarita is filled with fresh berry flavor. Pureeing the fresh blackberries with a little jam gives the drink additional sweetness without having to make a simple syrup. Diluting with the lime-flavored sparkling water adds a nice effervescence.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk lime juice and jam (or preserves) in a cocktail shaker or small measuring cup until blended and smooth. Add blackberries and muddle with a muddler or a wooden spoon, breaking the berries up slightly to release their juices.

  • Fill the shaker with ice; add tequila, orange liqueur and salt. Shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker gets icy, about 30 seconds.

  • Strain the mixture into 2 ice-filled rocks glasses. Top each with sparkling water and garnish with a fresh blackberry and a lime slice, if desired.
