Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme
  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons orange-flavored liqueur or orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ice
  • salt or sugar to rim glass (optional)
  • lime wedge to rim glass (optional)

Instructions

  • Begin the recipe by using a cocktail shaker or jar with a lid, add in the 1/4 cup fresh blackberries and 1/2 tablespoon thyme and muddle at the bottom.
  • Pour in the 2 ounces tequila, 1 ounce lime juice, 2 teaspoons orange-flavored liqueur, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup together.
  • Place the shaker top or jar lid on the shaker or jar and carefully shake for 10 to 15 seconds.
  • Rim a glass with a lime wedge and coat in salt or sugar. Add ice into the glass. Strain the drink mixture from the shaker or jar and pour into a glass. Top with an additional sprig of thyme for garnish. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • You may substitute orange juice in the same unit of measure for the orange-flavored liqueur. 
  • Be sure to use fresh lime juice for this recipe. For an ounce use approximately the juice of 1 1/2 small limes. 
  • Rim the glass, use coarse flaky sea salt or sugar. 
  • If this margarita is too strong in terms of alcohol, adjust to your preference or allow the ice to melt a little before drinking to dilute. 
  • Double or triple the recipe as needed.
