Blackberry Margaritas

At present I am suffering from a little summer sickness so once I get back to feeling normal I think I will celebrate with one of these. Blackberry flavored drinks are a weakness for me–I will always have a soft spot for the blackberry martinis at the restaurant Salut  in Minneapolis.

◦    For the blackberry puree:

◦    6 oz blackberries

◦    1/4 cup water

Instructions

1. Heat berries and 1/4 water over medium heat.

3. Pour into a strainer set over a bowl and press the pulp and juices through the stainer, into the bowl.

5. Add puree, simple syrup, lime juice, liqueurs, and tequila in a small pitcher or carafe.
