The margarita is one of the most classic cocktails out there. It’s tried and true—and consistently delicious... so long as you’re using fresh citrus and quality tequila. (Yes, now would be the time to throw out that bottle of sour mix that’s been sitting in your refrigerator for the past three years.) And if you’re thinking that you and tequila just don’t mix because of that one unbearable hangover you had way back in college, then it’s time for a new relationship with the spirit.

This berry margarita recipe is your fresh start. It doesn’t require a ton of ingredients, and it’s easy to make at home. Seriously, though, throw out that bottle of sour mix—keep your margs fresh. Happy imbibing.

Combine all ingredients into a cocktail shaker. Using a muddler, press the berries to release the juice. Add ice to the cocktail shaker and shake to chill the cocktail. Strain the cocktail through a mesh/strainer over a rocks glass filled with ice (the mesh strainer will catch the muddled fruit). Garnish with blackberries.
