(2 fl oz) tequila
(1 fl oz) aperol
(1 fl oz) blackberry syrup (recipe below)
(1 fl oz) lime juice (keep the lime to prep the glass)
some black lava salt in a saucer
or regular, coloured black
(10.5 oz) blackberries
(½ cup) sugar
(½ cup) water
A cocktail shaker would be great, if not, just stir it all up well in a glass/jug.
Blackberry Syrup (needs to be made earlier and chilled)
Place all the ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a gentle boil.
Lower the heat right down and simmer for 15 minutes, by which time the fruit will be soft and falling apart. Squash the fruit with the back of a spoon or a fork to release more juice.
Strain into a jug/bowl with a strainer double lined with muslin/cheese cloth. Or strain in twice with a fine sieve. Basically, we want a clear syrup with no bits.
Place in the fridge to chill.
Let's make the Bloody Margarita
Run a lime slice all around the rim of a glass.
Dip the glass rim into the black lava salt, coating well.
Place everything into a shaker and shake to mix and chill. Start with 1/2 part blackberry syrup.
Taste and add more syrup if you like it sweeter. I do.
Pour into the glass, minus the ice cubes.
