Thirsty Thursday--Blackberry Paloma

I'm back for round two of my tequila dedicated posts this month,
with a big thanks to Casa Noble Tequila.

This time I decided to try out the crystal 

in one of my favorite tequila cocktails---The Paloma.

I have what you might call an obsession with all things grapefruit.
So this cocktail calls to me.
I pumped it up a little bit by adding a few of my other favorite ingredients...
blackberries and St. Germain.

And behold, my new favorite cocktail (for right now).

You are going to love this cocktail.
When you are pouring it into your glass your mouth is going to water.
The smell is divine.

Grapefruit, blackberries, elderflower, lime, and tequila.
It's intoxicating.

Blackberry Paloma

makes 1 cocktail

10 blackberries
1 teaspoon sugar or sweetener (I used Truvia)
juice from 1/2 lime
3 ounces grapefruit juice
1 ounce St. Germain
2 ounces crystal tequila

In the bottom of the cocktail shaker, add the blackberries and sugar.  Muddle until macerated.  Add all of the remaining ingredients.  Add ice and shake until well blended.  Pour into a glass filled with ice. Garnish with a slice of lime or grapefruit.

**adjust sweetener and lime depending on sweetness of berries--you may not need any sugar at all.
