Blackberry Champagne Margarita

Ingredients

  • 1 cup blackberries + more for garnish
  • 1.5 oz simple syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon (or lime) juice
  • 4 oz champagne (1 oz = 1 shot)
  • 2 oz tequila

Directions

  1. Throw 1 cup blackberries, lemon juice, and sugar (or simple syrup) into a martini shaker. Using a large spoon, crush berries and stir mixture until juicy.
  2. Add tequila, cap the shaker, and shake until mixture is well-combined.
    ** Don’t be a dummy like me and shake after adding champagne. Champagne is fizzy, and shaking it will just cause you to have a messy, red explosion all over your counters. You could also just combine all the ingredients in a carafe and stir vigorously.
  3. Uncap shaker and pour mixture directly into 2 champagne glasses. Divide champagne between glasses, and stir gently.
    ** You can strain the liquid out, or leave the fruit chunks. I personally think this drink tastes better with crushed pieces of fruit adding extra flavor.
  4. Garnish with more blackberries and some mint.
  5. Enjoy!
