  • Use ripe and sweet blackberries for the best flavor. If blackberries are not in season, you can substitute with frozen blackberries, thawed before use.
  • For a smoother texture, you can strain the blackberry margarita mixture through a fine mesh sieve before serving.
  • Adjust the sweetness of the cocktail to your taste by adding more or less agave nectar or simple syrup.
  • To make simple syrup, combine equal parts water and granulated sugar in a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, then let cool before using.
  • If you prefer a stronger margarita, you can increase the amount of tequila to suit your preference.



  • For a spicy kick, add a slice of jalapeño or a dash of hot sauce to the cocktail shaker when muddling the blackberries.
  • Experiment with different types of berries, such as raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries, to create your own custom margarita smash.
  • To make a frozen blackberry margarita, blend the blackberry margarita mixture with ice until smooth and slushy.
