Blackberry Thyme Margaritas

Yield: 2 drinks


18 blackberries, divided

3 small sprigs fresh thyme

1 cup crushed ice

1/3 cup tequila

¼ cup simple syrup

Juice of 1 lime

1 tbsp. orange liqueur such as triple sec or Cointreau

¼ cup sparkling water


Place 16 of the blackberries in a food processor or blender with the thyme leaves.  Pulse to puree until smooth.  Strain the blackberry puree through a fine mesh sieve into a small bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible.  

Combine the blackberry puree, ice, tequila, simple syrup, lime juice, orange liqueur and sparkling water in a blender or food processor.  Blend until smooth and well combined.  Pour into two glasses and garnish with reserved blackberries and additional thyme, if desired.
