I love a good cocktail anytime of year but during the summer months, I can’t turn down a good margarita. Especially one that is full of flavor and tastes amazing. That’s exactly what you get with this Sparkling Blackberry Lime Margarita. It’s the perfect addition to summer barbecue’s, a girls night in or just after a long day of work. The secret is the blackberry moonshine from Sugarlands in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Yes, you read that right. I used moonshine in my margarita recipe and I don’t know why I haven’t tried this sooner.
Cool off with this delicious Sparkling Blackberry Lime Margarita recipe.
When I received this amazing box of goodies from Sugarlands Distilling Company, I wasn’t sure what to make first. There were so many delicious varieties included, my mind was spinning with possibilities. Since I can never turn down a good margarita and I had a few pints of blackberries sitting in my fridge, I immediately knew what I needed to make first.
And trust me when I say I was glad I did. This Sparkling Blackberry Lime Margarita was exactly what I thought it would be and then some.
The addition of the Blockader’s Blackberry Moonshine really made this drink. It was nice and smooth. The moonshine blends natural flavors from ripe berries with the floral fragrances of honeysuckle and lavender.
It paired perfectly with my blackberry simple syrup and the addition of club soda gave it a nice bubbly touch.
With the holiday weekend quickly approaching, I already know I’m making this for our cookout this weekend. It has the perfect summer barbecue vibe perfect for entertaining. If you’re making a large patch just increase the recipe below.
