HOW TO STORE:

Refrigerator: If you happen to have leftover margaritas (a rare occurrence, I know), store them in a large pitcher covered in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Freezer: You can freeze the margarita mixture in single cups, however, they may not freeze fully due to the alcohol. And, don’t add a splash of sparkling water just yet, add it just before serving.

When you’re ready to enjoy, let it thaw a bit, give it a good stir, and serve!

DANA’S TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • For the best part of the drink, always use fresh lime juice. It makes a world of difference.
  • If you don’t have a muddler, the back of a wooden spoon works just as well to mash those blackberries.
  • When rimming your margarita glasses with salt, use a small plate to spread the salt evenly for easy dipping.
  • For a Halloween twist, consider rimming the glasses with black salt.
  • Rim with sugar instead for a sweet twist!
  • Always taste your margarita mix before serving. Depending on the sweetness of your blackberries, you may need to adjust with a touch more agave nectar.
  • If hosting a Halloween party, make a large batch ahead of time, and store in a punch bowl – less hassle and more fun!
