the perfect summer cocktail: agave negro

with the hottest summer days approaching, everybody needs a quick, refreshing cocktail every now and then, right? right. mix up this margarita on a weekend for a party... or anytime, really! if you know how to make a simple syrup, you can make this drink. and man, is it delicious!

my family & i call this the "blackberry margarita". be sure to have some decent tequila on hand and the freshest blackberries you can find. if you don't have a perfectly shaped glass, no worries. i promise it would even taste fantastic in a plastic cup.

for one agave negro, you will need:
  • 3 blackberries
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1 1/2 ounces respasado tequlia
  • 3/4 lime juice
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 1/2 chambord
  • 1 ounce cold club soda
muddle 2 blackberries in a cocktail shaker. add the ice, tequila, lime juice, simple syrup and chambord. shake! pour into a glass & garnish with a blackberry + lime wedge on a toothpick. simple & delicious!
