Sipping Sunday

It’s National Tequila Day!!

Can you tell I’m excited?  Let’s celebrate together with this bold blackberry beauty!!   

Blackberries hold a very special place in this girl’s heart.   Growing up wild blackberries flooded our backyard, the next door neighbor’s yard and all along the fence of the house on the corner of our street.

My mom and Mr. Lee (our next door neighbor) would spend long summer hours picking, picking, picking blackberries.   Us kids only picked enough to stash away in the freezer.  Once frozen they were plopped into a bowl with a sprinkle of sugar.

Heaven in a bowl on a hot Texas summer day.  So today when the heat index climbs to a sweltering 110 degrees.  I plan to celebrate National Tequila Day with a blackberry margarita.

I shall sip and I shall count my days left here in Edinburg, because next year I along with my kids will spend our summer hours picking blackberries.   I can’t wait!  Enjoy!

  2. [...] This fruity concoction might not sound like the most macho drink in the world, but it sure looks like it. The black and red appearance will have your friends guessing you’re drinking motor oil with a splash of cherry. You know, like a real man.   (Recipe) [...]

  3. [...] very enticing, plus I’ve had this recent curiosity about blackberries. The pin took me to this wonderful website. This looks like another cooking blog that I must regularly [...]

  4. How is it that I’m craving these after all those tequila shots the other night? How?!

    It must be your beautiful photography (:

    and those glasses are really rather stunning (provided they aren’t the product of my tequila-befuddled mind!)

  5. I think we must be twins from a former life because I also spend most of my weekends coming up with new margarita flavors… my friends and family don’t mind at all. When you make juice for all your margaritas, are you just using a juicer for everything?

    Hey Lindsey!! I use my juicer to make the fresh juice. You could also use a blender, but for the blackberry feel free to strain the bits!! Hope you give it a try!! thanks for stopping by.
