I like my cocktail recipes just like I like my other recipes, simple and easy. I just don’t see the need for ten ingredients in a cocktail recipe when fewer can be just as good. With fewer ingredients, you’ll want to ensure each ingredient is of good quality since each flavor shines through.

This Blackberry Lemonade Margarita Smash is best with fresh blackberries. You can use frozen berries, and they will taste just fine. However, frozen berries will not hold up to skewering for a garnish.

I used a premade, good-quality lemonade. You can use homemade lemonade or lemon juice plus 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon powdered sugar, depending on your preferred sweetness.

Also, I used good tequila for this Blackberry Lemonade Margarita Smash. I prefer Don Julio Silver, but Don Julio Blanco or Patron Silver are also good options. But use your favorite or the best you can afford.

A sugared rim is nice for this cocktail, but you can also use salt. Or, you may want to try a mixture of both. Also, if you zest lime into the sugar or salt, it will give more flavor and a nice aroma to your drink.

  1. Wet the rim of your glass with a wedge of fresh lemon.
  2. Add a tablespoon of Old Bay seasoning to a flat dish.
  3. Dip the glass rim into the seasoning and turn to coat.

To make this Blackberry Lemonade Margarita Smash, this is a fantastic shaker set with a muddler and shot glass for cocktail making.
