1 tablespoon sugar (mixed with 1 tablespoon salt to rim the glass, lime wedge optional)
1 1/2 ounces silver tequila (about 3 tablespoons)
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (about 1 very large or 1 1/2 small limes)
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice (about 1/2 medium orange)
2 teaspoons light agave nectar or simple syrup (add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon additional if you prefer a sweeter margarita)
1/4 cup blackberries (about 6 large or 8 small; you can use fresh or frozen and thawed)
Additional lime wedges and berries (for serving)
8 ounces silver tequila ((1 cup))
1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 5 medium/large limes)
8 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice (from about 4 medium oranges) ((1 cup))
3 tbsp plus 1 teaspoon light agave nectar ( or simple syrup)
1 1/4 cups fresh blackberries
Rim the glass(es): Mix the salt and sugar together in a small bowl, then transfer to a shallow plate. Rub a lime wedge around the top edge of your glass to moisten it, then dip the glass into the sugar/salt mixture so that it sticks, tapping all the way around. Place 2 tablespoons of the blackberries in the bottom of the glass, then muddle them so that they are lightly crushed. Fill the glass with ice.
For one drink: Fill a small cocktail shaker with additional ice. Add the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave. Tightly close and shake vigorously for at least 30 seconds (it’s longer than you think). Strain into the rimmed glass over the ice. Garnish with remaining blackberries and lime wedges. Enjoy immediately.
For a pitcher: Muddle half of the blackberries (those not used for the glasses) in the bottom of a pitcher. Stir in the tequila, lime juice, orange juice, and agave (do not add ice to the pitcher). Serve immediately (prepare the glasses as in Step 1) or place a sheet of plastic wrap over the top of the pitcher and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
