Today’s clever cocktail combines the juicy ripe characters of fresh blackberries and the spicy bite of jalapeno to create our take on the Sweet & Spicy Blackberry Margarita. Muddling the jalapeno releases just the right amount of heat and the blackberries provide a juicy component to the cocktail that balances the heat and tartness of the other ingredients. This rendition is a great take on the Margarita that is sure to get rave reviews. Cheers!
