These Spicy Blackberry Margaritas for a crowd are THE BEST margaritas ever! Tequila, blackberry brandy, green chiles, fresh fruit, agave, orange juice, and lime. Rimmed with chili salt. Cheers!
HAPPY NATIONAL MARGARITA DAY! I wait for this day with anticipation every year (kidding…kind of??). My absolute favorite holiday (kidding again…we think)!! Is there any cocktail better than a refreshing margarita?? Synonymous with fun, festivities, and great taste; I just love to get creative with margaritas. I cannot get enough.
As you can see…I really do love margaritas! They’re the perfect drink for entertaining. These Spicy Blackberry Margaritas are my new favorite. Just the right amount of spice, and such a vibrant and pretty color. Love at first sip.
I made these with Old El Paso Green Chiles. I am so honored to be working with Old El Paso this year, because they make cooking EASY. Sure, we could chop up chiles to make this sweet lil margarita spicy, but using a can of green chiles from Old El Paso is so much simpler, and just as yummy. Win win!
I love that this recipe is for a crowd…or just more for me. A pitcher of margaritas is worth a thousand words!
Hope you have the most fabulous and delicious MARGARITA DAY! And then make these again for Cinco De Mayo. And tons of days in between! Enjoy!!
10 minPrep Time
10 minTotal Time
- 2 1/2 cups fresh blackberries
- 1 (4.5 ounce) can chopped Old El Paso green chiles
- 1 cup lime juice
- 3 ounces (2 shots) blackberry brandy
- 2 1/2 cups orange juice
- 3/4 cup good quality tequila
- 3 tablespoons agave nectar (or more to taste)
- Coarse sea salt (or salt flakes) and chili powder for rim
- blackberries and lime wedges for garnish
- Place the lime juice, blackberries, and green chiles in a small bowl. Using a muddler or immersion blender, muddle/blend until fully combined. The smoother the better.
- Pour the blackberry mixture through a fine mesh strainer and remove the seeds. For me, the mixture was relatively thick so I pressed it through using a spoon to get all the juice out.
- Pour the juice into a pitcher, followed by the blackberry brandy, orange juice, tequila, and agave. Stir to fully combine.
- Combine sea salt and chili powder (equal parts) on a plate. Dip the rim of each glass in water or lime juice and then submerge in the salt/chili mixture.
- Fill each glass with ice and then pour in the margaritas.
- Garnish with blackberries and lime wedges. Enjoy!
