Blackberry Sage Margarita

A fresh seasonal margarita is a precious gift year round; spring, fall, summer and winter. We have modernized the margarita and made a sweetener that isn’t overly sweet or sour that will help your seasonal items shine, but not overpowering them with a mixer that’s too sweet, too sour or to synthetic tasting, allowing the fresh seasonal fruit (or veg) to take center stage. Mangoes natural sweetness and perfumed essence yield a terrific base for whatever your margarita desires are.

Blackberries and fresh sage are excellent compadres and this flavorful partnership is demonstrated perfectly with a splash f smoky mezcal added to our normal margarita recipe. The smokiness of the mezcal brings out the smoky flavor in the sage and the tangy blackberry is mellowed with the mango pit syrup. The end result is a smoky, perfumed sultry drink!

Blackberry tip: Freeze whole berries and extend the season.
