Cheers to summer and the refreshing blend of blackberries with tequila and honey. These Frozen Blackberry Margaritas are a delicious way to cool off and celebrate the season!
Summer has been in full swing for a while now, and I’ve been trying to savor every second of the long, warm days. I find it so odd that folks are already talking about fall and Christmas. I’m making an effort to slow down and enjoy the moment because in a blink of an eye, it will again be winter, and we’ll be yearning for summer.
Anywho, to celebrate the season, I thought we could whip up these scrumptious Frozen Blackberry Margaritas.
Of the many types of berries, blackberries are probably my favorite. While I enjoy them raw, I LOVE them baked in a pie. – Blackberry pie served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. It’s my idea of heaven.
And even though these Frozen Blackberry Margaritas aren’t pie, they are guaranteed to taste angelic on a hot summer day.
How to make Frozen Blackberry Margaritas
In addition to the fabulous flavor, they’re easy to make. Just place everything in a blender, pulse until smooth, and pour!
I like to serve these with salt on the rim and a few frozen blackberries for garnish. However, straight out of the blender, sans garnish, is equally good.
The recipe below serves six. So no matter how you like to celebrate (with friends or by yourself), there will be plenty to go around. Now let’s take some time to celebrate life in the season we are in. Happy Summer, my friends!
