Stir together sugar and water over medium heat, just until the sugar has completely dissolved and the mixture is clear. Stir in lime juice and pour into a blender. Pit cherries and place in the blender. Add tequila, orange liqueur, and blackberry liqueur, if using. Blend 15-20 seconds and pour through a fine sieve into a pitcher.
