Blackberry ‘Ritas for a Linky Cocktail Party

I have met so many great bloggers since yesterday thanks to Amanda and The Secret Recipe Club.  (See yesterday’s post for more on SRC.)

As I was checking my site this morning, I found a hilarious comment from Foodness Gracious (what a great name) suggesting a linky cocktail party this Friday.  Cocktails?  Count me in.

So, in the honor of our mission to TRY to eat (and drink) local and due to the fact that I am strapped for time this week, I wanted to revisit a recipe from Operation Blackberry (Day 1-2 and Day 3).

Here it is:

A super easy refreshing summer cocktail!

Blackberry ‘Ritas

1 c.  fresh blackberries
1 T. sugar
1 (12-oz.) can frozen lemonade concentrate
12 oz.  100% agave blanco tequila
3 c.  club soda
Crushed ice
Extra berries and mint to garnish

In a small mixing bowl,add blackberries and sugar.  Mash with a potato masher to combine.  Let set for five minutes.  After five minutes,strain through a sieve into a large pitcher.

Add frozen lemonade to blackberry mixture.  Use the empty lemonade can to measure tequila.  Pour tequila into pitcher.  Stir will.  Add club soda and crushed ice if you like.

Fill margarita glasses with crushed ice and pour margaritas.  Garnish with berries and mint.

Cheers!  Salud!  Skål!  Here’s to your health!

I have wanted to try this by foregoing the frozen lemonade and using fresh lemons and agave nectar.  I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  If anyone tries it, please let me know.  I bet it would be delicious.

Please join the fun and add a recipe for Foodness Gracious’ partay!
