Cherry Margaritas
For the homemade margarita mix:
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup water water
  • 2 Tbsp sugar (or the equivalent in your favorite sweetener)
For the margarita
  • Homemade margarita mix (above)
  • 24 cherries
  • 3 oz tequila
  • 2 oz orange liqueur
  • 2 oz blackberry liqueur (optional)
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.
Use a rubber spatula to work the mixture around, getting as much of the liquid out as possible. Pour the strained margarita over ice and enjoy.
