Midtown Girl by Amy Chandra - 4th of July cocktail Blackberry City Margarita

Need a chic cocktail idea for the 4th? Super delish, refreshing and easy to make (like all #MGcocktails), this one is a must for a 4th of July get-together in the city. Check out below on how to make a Blackberry City Margarita, perfect for your holiday rooftop soiree…

‘ Blackberry City Margarita’ recipe:

  • 1.5 ounces of gold tequila (gold gives margies a richer flavor)
  • 1.5 ounces of diet ginger ale
  • juice from half a lime
  • 3 crushed blackberries / raspberries for garnish

Combine tequila, crushed blackberries & lime juice with ice and shake. Pour in a pretty glass, top off with diet ginger ale & garnish with a few blackberries/raspberries. You can also rub the rim of the glass with a lime and add salt if desired.

MG Tip: Pre-cut and muddle the blackberries & lime beforehand, that way you can spend less time making cocktails and more time on the rooftop with your guests.
