Drinking in Season: Blackberry Margarita
The steamy months of summer seem like they're made just to give us a reason to drink margaritas. The cool, citrusy cocktail garnished with a rim of glittering salt is one of the best ways to forget about the temperature and get lost in good times.
Margaritas are also a great way to use up some of that fresh fruit from the market—especially fruits with a hint of tartness. Blackberries add deep berry flavor and a vibrant red color to this margarita. The salted rim provides the perfect contrast to the sweet and tart citrus and berry flavors while the blackberry garnish helps dress this drink up.
