It’s Monday! Most often referred to in the food blog community as Meatless Monday, but I think it should really be Margarita Mondays and hey that is meatless so it kinda counts twice!

Blackberry Margaritas | Fresh Blackberry Margaritas are just delicious. The End.

These beautiful gems are delicious and dangerous.  It is the ultimate dinner party drink for the Summer months and will keep your guests lined up at the bar.  I totally cheated and used a juicer… because hey, gotta justify owning it by hauling it out 4x a year and using that puppy.  But, any way you blend it up these fruity delights are to die for good!

serves 8 or us… because it’s been a Monday for the books

DIRECTIONS: Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar and kosher salt in a dish. Cut lime into 9 wedges; rub rims of 8 glasses with 1 lime wedge. Dip rims of glasses in salt mixture. Combine water and 1/2 cup sugar in a microwave-safe glass measuring cup. Microwave at HIGH 2 1/2 minutes, stirring to dissolve sugar; cool. Combine syrup, tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, and blackberries in a blender; process until smooth. {Or skip the blender and use a juicer… just sayin’ no straining…} Strain mixture through a cheesecloth-lined sieve over a pitcher; discard solids. Serve over ice. Garnish with remaining lime wedges.
