This refreshingly great cocktail is sure to be a crowd favorite. The sugar and lemon zest ring is the perfect compliment to this sweet and tart libation. Adorned with a slice of lemon and a blackberry it is an instant visual masterpiece. The beverage will sit sexy in any type of stemware but I just love a drink in a martini glass.
Prep Time: Ten Minutes
2 cups fresh blackberries
2 TBSP sugar
4 tsp blackberry puree
4 oz lemonade
4 oz silver tequila
Process blackberries in a blender until smooth. Place wire mesh over a bowl to drain the puree. Stir in 2 tbsp sugar to the seedless puree. Fill cocktail shaker about /4 full with ice. Add 2 oz blackberry puree, 2 oz tequila,
2 oz lemondate. Shake. Before you pour set up your glass.
On a small plate place sugar and the zest of one lemon (mix to combine). Run a cut lemon around the rim of the stemware to moisten. Then dip into the sugar lemon zest for a coated rim.
Then strain cocktail into the glass and garnish with a lemon slice and a blackberry.
