Luscious blackberries are one of my all time favorites!
Putting them in to a Margarita created one of the best drinks that I have had in forever!
I am not a huge drinker but when it comes to margaritas? I make an exception!
They are not only delicious they are beautiful!
Try to have just one, its harder than you think LOL
Fresh berries are the KEY to a perfect Blackberry Margarita!
