  1. To prepare the blackberry puree first get a saucepan. Combine the sugar, blackberries, and lime juice in the pan. Let them cook together with a lid on for 20 to 25 minutes.
  2. When the time is up, get a fine strainer and strain the mixture. You should also press the blackberries to get more liquid out of them.
  3. Put the puree in the fridge.
  4. Next, you need to make the lime sugar. Combine the lime zest and sugar. Go over the rim of the margarita glass with a slice of lime.
  5. Put the lime sugar in a plate and dip the rim of the glass in.
  6. To make the blackberry margarita you will need a blender. Fill it with 1 cup tequila, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup triple sec, and juice of 1 lime.
  7. Add ice, then start blending. Pulse until all ingredients are blended.
  8. To finish off you should add 1/3 to 1/2 cup blackberry puree. Divide the drink between 4 margarita glasses.
