Blackberry Basil Margaritas
Make the basil syrup ahead of time and you’ll be ready to mix up drinks at a moment’s notice! It will keep refrigerated for several days.
- ¼ cup sugar
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup loosely packed fresh basil torn into large pieces
- 1 cup frozen blackberries defrosted
- ¼ cup fresh orange juice
- ½ cup tequila
- 4 cups ice
Combine sugar, water, and bail in a large saucepan over medium heat. Simmer 5 minutes, or until sugar dissolves and basil wilts (liquid will be clear). Let stand 15 minutes; discard basil.
Add sugar syrup, blackberries, and orange juice to a blender. Process until smooth. Strain mixture through a fine mesh strainer placed over a pitcher; discard seeds. Add the liquid back to the blender, along with tequila and ice. Blend on high until drink is smooth and slushy.
