Blackberry margarita

I love margaritas, especially frozen with salt crystals rimming my glass. This recipe was the perfect refreshment after a hot and sweaty hike.

8 oz blackberries
0.25 cup sugar
0.5 lime juiced
0.5 lime cut into four wedges
2 tbsp blackberry sauce
0.25 cup tequila
1 tbsp Cointreau
1 cup ice

Add the sugar, blackberries and lime juice to a pot. Simmer for 15 minutes. Press through a sieve and reserve sauce. Discard seeds. Chill sauce.

To a blender add 2 tbsp blackberry sauce, 1 cup crushed ice, 0.25 cup tequila, 1 tbsp triple sec (cointreau). Blend until smooth.

Moisten the rim of a glass with a lime wedge. Dip into Kosher salt. Decorate with a lime wedge. Serve drink in this glass.
