Recipe: Blackberry-poblano margarita

By: Kara Newman

Makes 1 drink.

The luscious purple color of this drink is a stunner! Taste a berry first to check for sweetness. If it's not super-sweet, add a tablespoon of sugar when muddling the berries.

INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon fresh blackberries
1 tablespoon diced poblano peppers (or 1 1/2, if very mild)
1 ounce silver tequila
3/4 ounce cointreau

PREPARATION
In a cocktail shaker, muddle blackberries and poblano peppers. Shake with tequila, cointreau, and ice. Strain into a martini glass.

Note: If working with fresh blackberries, raspberries, or blueberries, to avoid pulp or seeds in your glass, strain before serving. Blackberries not in season? Use frozen berries.
