Undoubtedly you’ve experienced the sweet and tangy flavors of a classic margarita. What you don’t know is that this tequila creation has been missing a few things – blackberries and mint, if we’re going to get technical. Fortunately, this recipe is fool proof. Every ingredient is readily available at your local market, which means that you’ll be sipping on sunshine in no time at all.
