Fresh Blackberry Margarita
2 oz. silver tequila
1 oz. agave nectar
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1/2 oz fresh blackberry puree*
Fresh blackberries for garnish
Coarse salt or sugar to rim your glass
Using a cut lime, rim your glass. Then dip glass into a small plate of coarse salt. Fill the glass with ice and set aside. Immediately fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the tequila, agave nectar, fresh lime juice and blackberry puree and shake vigorously, then strain into prepared glass. Add a fresh blackberry or two for garnish.
*To make the fresh blackberry puree — to a blender add 1 pint of fresh raspberries and 2 tablespoons of sugar. Blend on high until smooth. Pour into a fine sieve to remove the seeds. Store in a small container in your refrigerator. Be sure to save a few whole blackberries to garnish.
