blackberry acai margarita

two weeks until cinco de mayo, but who's counting...?! being from texas, I don't need an occasion to justify a pitcher of margaritas with some queso and guacamole. it's pretty much cinco de mayo at least once a week in my world. but in all seriousness, cinco de mayo saturday is a great excuse to get together with friends over drinks on a patio somewhere to just relax and waste the day away.

I will be in new york over cinco de mayo this year [ironically, this is not the first time this has happened]. while I will definitely seek out a margarita in manhattan, I'm in love with my new cactus margarita glasses I bought while treasure hunting on a recent trip. so I'm celebrating cinco de mayo two weeks early to break in the glasses and try a new margarita recipe.

I am heading to cuba super early tomorrow morning with my mom - cheers to adventures and new places! perhaps I should finish packing before having too many of these blackberry acai margaritas?!

-2 oz. tequila
-2 oz. blackberry acai juice
-1/2 oz. lime juice, to taste
-1 oz. patron orange liquor

1. combine and serve over ice.
2. use blackberries and lime wedges to garnish.


  1. It is Cinco de Mayo in my world once a week as well. I can't help it, I love chips, salsa, guac and a good margarita! Have so much fun in Cuba!

  2. wish we could have a margarita together! still in Cuba, can't wait to post all my photos when I'm back! XO
