Blackberry Tequila Smash

Blackberry Tequila Smash

A rim of La Jolla sea salt finishes this fizzy agave cocktail. Seek out the best local berries available.

Makes 2 large drinks

1/3 cup fresh blackberries, about 14, divided
2 tablespoons agave nectar
4 oz. tequila anejo
4 oz. fresh lime juice (2 limes)
club soda
2 thin lime wedges for garnish
La Jolla Salt sea salt for rim

Reserve 4 blackberries and 2 slices of lime for garnish. Using two toothpicks, skewer each with two blackberries and a slice of lime. Moisten the rim of two low ball glasses with a lime wedge, then dip in sea salt.

Put the remaining berries into a cocktail shaker, add agave nectar and muddle until well combined. Add tequila, lime juice and ice, then shake aggressively.

Fill glasses with ice and strain the blackberry tequila mixture between each glass. Top with soda and blackberry-lime garnish.
