#DOTW: Blackberry Margarita

I haven’t had a Margarita in a while! I did do some shopping for fruit this week, trying to live healthy, but of course there’s always a thought of a cocktail in the back of my head, I just love to combine fresh fruit with a cocktail. And yes, it was time for a Margarita last night (or several…)…



What you’ll need:

  • 2 oz Don Julio tequila (or quality tequila of your choice}
  • 2 oz Cointreau
  • 2 oz blackberry-lime mix

Place 6 oz of fresh blackberries in a blender or food processor. Add the juice of one fresh lime and blend. Have plenty of lime and blackberries left for garnish. In a cocktail shaker combine tequila, Cointreau and blackberry-lime mix with ice and shake well. Pour over ice in a highball glass and garnish with lime and blackberries.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
