Happy almost Friday!
Guys, I registered the kids for school yesterday. Didn’t school just let out?
I’m not ready for it! I need another 3 months of sleeping in and not packing lunches and not avoiding phone calls from teachers.
Don’t judge me.
Yesterday I also ordered a bunch of pumpkin and other fall Wallflowers from Bath & Body Works.
I’d really like if we could just have fall without all the not fun stuff that comes along with fall.
Last weekend I came across Nicole’s Blackberry Margaritas on Pinterest and couldn’t stop thinking about them, despite the fact that it was 9 am.
I don’t even like blackberries.
But whatever, I needed those margaritas in my life. So I loaded all the kids up (because the husband was in the field = why I needed margaritas at 9 am) and went to the store for blackberries.
I didn’t even wander around HEB, gathering samples and looking for new products. And you know that’s one of my favorite hobbies. I was wasting no time.
These were everything I’d hoped for and more. So delicious, so pretty! I already want to make them again!
For the simple syrup, you can either buy it or make your own by heating 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water, stirring until all the sugar is dissolved.

- 6 ounces blackberries
- 1 tablespoon water
- the blackberry puree
- 8 ounces lime juice
- 8 ounces simple syrup
- 4 ounces orange liqueur such as triple sec
- 6 ounces tequila
- salt to rim the glasses
- lime wedges and blackberries for garnish
To make the puree, blend the blackberries and water in a blender until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove seeds.
To make the margaritas, combine the puree, lime juice, simple syrup, orange liqueur, and tequila in a pitcher.
To rim the glasses, run a lime wedge around the rim of each glass and dip in salt. Add ice to each glass and pour margaritas over. Garnish with blackberries and limes.
