Blackberry Mint Margarita
When we moved there, we didn't have any friends or really know anyone at all. I told my mom that our neighbors had invited us to a barbecue or something and she told me, 'be careful making friends with your neighbors, they might end up being around all the time.'
I think this drink would be right up their alley. Fruity and naturally sweetened but definitely still has the kick from the tequila.
BLACKBERRY MINT MARGARITA
5 blackberries (+ 1 for garnish)
6 mint leaves (+ sprig for garnish)
2 oz. tequila
1 oz. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. honey
1. Muddle blackberries and mint in the bottom of a martini shaker.
2. Fill shaker with ice, tequila, lime juice and honey then shake well.
3. Strain into an ice filled highball glass and garnish with a blackberry and sprig of mint.
