SPICY BLACKBERRY COCKTAIL

Equal parts sweet and spicy, this blackberry infused cocktail is sure to be a hit at your next Holiday gathering! Plus you know we love anything involving TEQUILA (well, some of us do)!

A rocks glass filled with a Spice Blackberry cocktail, with a jalapeño slice and a blackberry placed on the rim for garnish. Half of a lemon, whole jalapeno's and a glass bowl filled blackberry's are placed next to the cocktail.

This beverage called for Serrano peppers, which we had NO idea even existed! After some googling, we found out they are very similar to Jalapeño peppers! We were unable to find Serrano peppers in our local grocery store, so we substituted them for jalapeño peppers!




INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz Silver Tequila

  • 1 oz Jalapeño Lime simple syrup (see recipe below)

  • 3/4 oz Freshly squeezed lime juice (we didn't measure - just guesstimate)

  • 3/4 oz Freshly squeezed lemon juice (again, didn't measure exactly)

  • 10(ish) Blackberries

  • Club soda for topping




DIRECTIONS

  1. Put blackberries, simple syrup, lemon juice and lime juice into a large measuring cup and muddle well

  2. Strain muddled mixture through a fine mesh strainer and into another cup *make sure to remove as much juice as possible*

  3. Fill a cocktail shaker 1/2 full with ice and pour in the strained juice and muddled blackberries

  4. Add tequila

  5. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass

  6. Top with club soda

  7. Garnish & enjoy!


The ingredients laid out for the spicy blackberry cocktail; club soda, lime, lemon, blackberry's, jalapeno's, jalapeno lime simple syrup and tequila.


JALAPEÑO LIME SIMPLE SYRUP

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 Cup granulated sugar

  • 1 Cup water

  • Zest of 1 lime

  • 2 Jalapeño peppers - sliced into rounds NOTE - keep the seeds in

DIRECTIONS

  1. Add equal parts sugar and water to a saucepan

  2. Add in sliced Jalapeño peppers and lime zest

  3. Bring to boil

  4. Strain to remove zest and peppers and let cool


This seems like an intense drink to make but we promise that it isn't as labor intensive as it sounds! You can make your simple syrup ahead of time and store it in your fridge, then you just have to muddle, shake and sip!


These measurements are for one beverage, so adjust accordingly to accommodate your needs!
