Spicy Serrano and Blackberry-Orange Margarita

Total Time

1 Hour 10 Mins

Yield

Serves 4 (serving size: about 3/4 cup)

This fruity sipper has sweet-tart flavor with a subtle burn from the serrano-infused tequila. Tender-tongued? This drink is equally delicious without the chile. Blackberries are fiber-packed and contain antioxidants called polyphenols that might ward off cognitive decline and keep your heart healthy.

  • 1 small serrano chile
  • 12 ounces fresh blackberries
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
