Cocktails make everything better, right? And a great margarita always makes me happy.  This margarita had a fun fruit syrup element, that everyone can make from any fruit.  Once you have the ingredients, just put them in the shaker and serve among friends!

(Bonus of this recipe is that you can make as much as a glass or two at a time, or a large punch bowl to serve a party.)

Ingredients

  • 2 parts silver tequilaIMG_3490
  • 2 parts lemon or lime juice (plus 1 tbsp for syrup)
  • 1 part blackberry simple syrup – (blackberries, lemon juice, sugar, and water.) 
  • Fresh sage leaves
  • 1/2 part orange cointreau
  • Garnish: sage leaves, Blackberries
