Why This Recipe Is So Good
Do you guys like margaritas as much as I do? (If you’re on this post, I’m guessing you do!) They are perfectly tart, not too sweet and always refreshing. With the warmer weather coming I decided it’s time to whip up some festive cocktails.
You can make this margarita frozen or on the rocks. I prefer on the rocks with a rim of sugar on my glass. This Mixed Berry Margarita is loaded with cherries, blueberries, and blackberries. It’s colorful, fruity, and delicious!
I love adding fruit to my cocktails. The sweet fruit and the tart lime make the perfect flavor combination. I had to use a mix of fresh and frozen fruit in my margarita because cherries aren’t in season yet.
Tequila, lime juice and simple syrup are also added. I make most of my drinks with simple syrup so I always make extra and store it away in the refrigerator. (Simple syrup is just equal parts sugar and water heated until dissolved.) You can also buy pre-made simple syrup at the liquor store.
- Mixed berries (I used blueberries, cherries, and blackberries, but any berries will work.)
- Simple syrup (homemade or store-bought)
- Fresh-squeezed lime juice
- Ice (for serving)
- Berries, lime wedges, and sugar (for garnish, if desired)
How To Make It
- To make this mixed berry margarita recipe, start by muddling the berries and simple syrup together in your salt or sugar rimmed glass.
- Top with lime juice and tequila. Stir to combine.
- Top with ice and fresh berries for garnish, if desired.
- If the seeds from the blackberries bother you simply strain through a sieve before serving.
To make this margarita frozen, substitute frozen berries and ice for a slushy treat.
Tips and Variations
- Make this a frozen margarita by using frozen fruit. Avoid using ice, as it will dilute your drink.
