Ingredients
  • 2 oz . Absolute Citron Vodka
  • 4 oz Limeade
  • 1 tablespoon lemoncello
  • 2 tablespoons freshly pureed blackberries (see notes)
  • Tajin Chili Lime Salt Seasoning
  • Limes and blackberries for garnish
Instructions
  1. Cut a lime wedge and rub lime juice over the edge of your glass. (I used a martini glass but any will work.)
  2. Pour a small amount of Tajin Chili lime salt on a small plate.
  3. Run lime edge of glass in Chili lime salt to coat.
  4. Prepare all your glasses before mixing the cocktail so the ice does not dilute your drink!
  5. Mix Vodka, Limeade, Limoncello and blackberry puree in a cocktail shaker add ice and shake well.
  6. Strain Ice out and pour into seasoned glasses.
  7. Garnish with lime wedges and whole blackberries.
  8. Cheers!
Recipe Notes

I bought a small clamshell of blackberries and pulled out 1/3 of them for garnishing. The rest I pureed in a blender with 1/4 cup water and a squeeze of lime. I chose not to strain the puree, but of course it would be great if you strained it too!
