TIPS ON MAKING BLACKBERRY MARGARITA SANGRIA CAZUELA COCKTAIL
To make the base of this cocktail I used fresh blackberries, but you can use frozen. Thaw before cooking.
Shake up this cocktail with a budget friendly white wine, save that great white wine bottle for date night.
For the tequila, use what you like to sip. I prefer tequila that state 100% de agave, which means the tequila is distilled only from Mexican blue agave plants. Cheap tequilas are often muddled down with alcohol made from corn or sugar cane, resulting in a tequila that burns, taste flat and lacks flavor.
Nothing beats fresh lemon juice in cocktails, fresh is always best.
Add your favorite lemon-lime soda or sparkling water to this cocktail. A lemon or coconut flavored sparkling water would work great.
WHAT IF I DON’T OWN A CAZUELA?
Feel free to use a punch bowl or two large pitchers to make this cocktail.
