When it comes to unconventional ingredients in margaritas, black raspberry makes the top of the list. But unless you’re bellying up to a downtown craft cocktail bar, nobody has time to mess with muddling. This Memorial Day I have the perfect cocktail for simply irresistible and refreshing.
Chambord, a French black raspberry liqueur, is a boozy substitute made with the freshest blackberries and raspberries, to deliver a sweet element that takes your margarita to the next level. Try this recipe:
Black Raspberry Margarita
1 ½ oz el Jimador Tequila
½ oz Triple Sec
3 oz Sour Mix
½ oz Chambord Liquor
In a shaker filled with ice, add ingredients and shake to mix. Pour into Margarita glass rimmed with salt (optional). Garnish with a lime or blackberry.
