Spicy Margarita Recipe

The perfect addition to this spicy margarita recipe? Green chiles! It’s something a little different for a cocktail recipe but it makes all the difference. Just what this drink needed!

I made these blackberry margaritas 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!

What else is in this Spicy Blackberry Cocktail?

  • Fresh Blackberries
  • Chopped Green Chiles
  • Lime Juice
  • Blackberry Brandy
  • Orange Juice
  • Tequila
  • Agave Nectar
  • Sea Salt
  • Blackberries and Lime to Garnish!

I love this fun mix of ingredients to create the perfect flavor!

How to Make Spicy Blackberry Margaritas

It’s no coincidence that cocktails are one of my favorite things to make. They’re simple and pretty quick to create for parties. I love that! This spicy margarita recipe is so easy and SO flavorful. You just have to try it out!

How to Make Blackberry Margaritas:

  1. Place lime juice, blackberries, and green chiles into a bowl, and use a muddler or immersion blender to fully combine. You want to create a relatively smooth consistency.
  2. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove the blackberry seeds. You might need to use a spoon to press the mixture through to make sure all the liquid comes through.
  3. Now pour the juice into a pitcher and add in the blackberry brandy, orange juice, tequila, and agave. Stir everything together to make sure it’s even;y mixed.
  4. To rim the glasses: mix chili powder and sea salt on a small plate. Dip each glass into lime juice and then into the chili mixture.
  5. Fill your glasses with ice, pour in the blackberry margaritas, and garnish with fresh blackberries and lime wedges!

This is such a delicious cocktail, I just know you’re going to love it!
