Blackberry Jalapeño Margarita


This cocktail will heat you up and cool you out at the same time.

I served this cocktail alongside five courses of gourmet grilled cheese (true story).

This was one of the most delightful R&B jams of 1996.  I still hear it at parties 20 years later!


  • Appox 12 oz tequila
  • 2 tablespoons blackberry jam
  • 10 – 15 blackberries
  • 1 sliced jalapeno
  • 3 limes, juiced
  • Blackberries and lime slices, for garnish

This makes about 4 cocktails.



  1. Put the tequila, jam, lime juice, and about 2/3 of the blackberries into a blender and blend.
  2. Combine with the pepper slices and the remaining 1/3 of the blackberries in a pitcher.
  3. Rim 4 glasses with salt, pour it on in, and garnish with extra berries and lime slices.
