Thirsty Thursday---Blackberry Pomegranate Margaritas

So, the other day I was in my garden and I picked these

I am really loving the blackberries this year--they are so good.

It was really hot outside, so I thought that I would treat myself to a little cocktail.
At first I thought that I would make a margarita with the blackberries, then I eyed a bottle of pomegranate tequila that I had in our liquor cabinet.  
I haven't had it in a while and it sounded great.

Blackberry Pomegranate Margarita

I think of all cocktails, a margarita is definitely my hands-down favorite.

This one does not disappoint.
It is dangerously good--as in you cannot taste the alcohol at all.
It is also refreshing and just a little sweet and tart.

Blackberry Pomegranate Margaritas

1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup fresh blackberries
1/2 cup tequilla
1/2 cup pomegranate tequilla
3/4 cup Grand Marnier
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
lime wedges
coarse salt

In a microwave safe bowl, combine the water and sugar and microwave on high for 3 minutes or until the sugar is completely dissolved and forms a syrup.  Allow to cool.

In a blender, combine the blackberries, syrup, tequila, Grand Marnier, and lime juice.  Liquify this mixture.

Rim your glasses with lime and salt and serve with a lime wedge over ice.
