Tequila Blackberry Lemonade is the perfect drink for relaxing during the summer. You can make a lot ahead of time and put them in mason jars for your friends to grab at your next barbecue!
I’ve been running again. It’s something I really love doing. For me it’s not about weight loss, I’ve trained for half marathons and not seen a big impact there, but more about alone time. I work from home and have two fantastic, amazing little guys, who really know how to drive me nuts! With school out there are here ALL. THE. TIME……. When I do get out of the house it’s usually with one of them, so my break and alone time is during my run. I love it! No one is asking me anything, wanting anything from me, or hanging on me. It’s just me, listening to my music and not talking. It’s the greatest EVER! Now that I’m living in Oregon my runs are soooo gorgeous and I’m finding new things all the time. This summer I discovered that everyone was telling the truth when they said that blackberries just grow along the streets here. Along most of my run there are blackberry bushes growing wild and HUGE!! I couldn’t wait for them to ripen so I could start picking and they finally did. I picked a lot around the corner so you can bet there will be an abundance of blackberry recipes coming. 🙂
This Tequila Blackberry Lemonade is the best, most refreshing drink I’ve had all summer. Here’s why I love it; it’s made with fresh fruit growing by my house, there are only really three ingredients, and I can make it ahead in a bunch of mason jars to serve to friends the next time we have them over! You can just mix all the ingredients together minus the ice and screw on the lid. Then just keep them in the cooler or in an ice bucket next to some lemon slices and a bowl of blackberries. They can fill their glass with ice, garnish and they’re set! I’m telling you this is a must make before the summer ends.
