Friday Signature Cocktail Day ~ Blackberry Mint Margarita

Tomorrow, is a special day.

It is not often that the Kentucky Derby and Cinco de Mayo share the same day!

We know I love a good Signature Cocktail… so I had to find a drink that married Mint and Margarita, to honor both!

Presenting: The Blackberry Mint Margarita!!

8 blackberries, 2 skewered on a pick
10 mint leaves
1 1/2 oz tequila
1 oz fresh lime juice
1 oz simple syrup

Muddle six of the blackberries in a cocktail shaker.

Add the ice, mint, tequila, lime juice and simple syrup.  Shake well.  Fill a rocks glass with ice cubes.  Strain the drink into the glass.  Or, if you don’t mind it a bit “chunky” just pour it in.  Top with the berries skewered on the pick.  Toast the one you love and enjoy.
