Blackberry Tequila Smash
A twist on a classic smash cocktail. Delicious tequila cocktail made with smashed blackberries and a little mint, fresh lemon, and of course anejo tequila
small mint leaves
fresh lemon juice
In a cocktail shaker, add 6 fresh blackberries and 5 small mint leaves. Muddle until the berries are completely macerated.
Add 2 oz anejo tequila, .5 oz agave syrup, .5 oz fresh lemon juice, and about ½ cup ice. Give it a good shake for about 20-30 seconds.
Strain into a glass that is full of crushed ice. Top off with 2 oz soda water. Give it a stir and garnish with blackberries, mint, and/or lemon wedges.
If the blackberry seeds clog up your shaker OR if the seeds are coming through your cocktail strainer you can pour the contents through a fine mesh strainer to make sure you get all the liquid.
