I just can't stop myself.
Whenever I start thinking about the week's Thirsty Thursday,
I usually always want to make some kind of margarita recipe.
I just love them so much.
They are soooo good.
This one was made due to an abundance of berries--
blackberries, blueberries, and strawberries.
Three of my absolute favorites.
I love the color of this margarita and the combination of the berries with the Grand Marnier and lime is delicious in every way.
I chose to use a crystal tequila to let the berries shine (instead of a reposado or anejo).
(I told you I had a lot of berry recipes coming your way, didn't I??)
3 ounces triple berry juice**
3 ounces crystal tequila (I used Casa Noble--my favorite)
2 ounces Grand Marnier
1 ounce simple syrup (use more or less depending on sweetness of berries)
1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
1-2 cups ice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until slushy. Pour into a glass rimmed with sugar and salt. Garnish with a lime wedge.
**To make the triple berry juice
1 cup blackberries
1 cup blueberries
2 cups strawberries
Combine berries in blender and puree. Strain and place in a bowl in the refrigerator to chill.
