Sip on the Dark Side: Unleash the Flavor with a Blackberry Margarita, Herradura Tequila, and Black Lava Salt

October 19, 2023

Craving a cocktail that’s as daring and dramatic as it is delicious? Look no further than our enticing Blackberry Margarita, concocted with the premium Herradura Tequila and crowned with an alluring black lava salt rim. It’s not just a drink; it’s an experience that tantalizes your taste buds and captures the spirit of every Taco Tuesday celebration.

When it comes to crafting the ultimate margarita, the choice of tequila is paramount. Herradura Tequila, renowned for its traditional production methods and robust agave flavor, provides the ideal base for our Blackberry Margarita. Distilled in the heart of Mexico’s tequila region, Herradura boasts a legacy of excellence, promising quality, authenticity, and a silky finish that complements the fruity zest of blackberries.

The Bold Twist: Blackberry Bliss

Blackberries, with their deep, sweet-tart flavor profile, transform a classic margarita into an innovative masterpiece. These juicy gems are packed with antioxidants and add not only a healthful twist but also a rich, vibrant hue to your cocktail, ensuring it’s as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate.

A Dramatic Finish with Black Lava Salt

What sets this margarita recipe apart is the striking finale: the black lava salt rim. Originating from the volcanic regions of Hawaii, black lava salt is infused with activated charcoal, contributing to its stunning color and smoky, earthy notes. It’s not only a conversation starter but also a flavor enhancer, adding complexity and a gourmet touch to every sip.



  • 2 oz Herradura Tequila
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 oz agave syrup (adjust to taste)
  • 3/4 cup fresh blackberries
  • Ice
  • Black lava salt for rimming
  • Lime wedges & fresh blackberries for garnish


  • Prep the Glass: Slide a lime wedge around the rim of your glass before dipping it into the black lava salt. This exotic salt not only gifts a visual contrast but an exciting flavor edge.
  • Blend the Blackberries: Muddle fresh blackberries in a cocktail shaker to release their color and sweet, tart juices. This step is crucial for that natural blackberry essence.
  • Shake it Up: Add Herradura Tequila, fresh lime juice, agave syrup, and ice to your shaker. Cap it and give it a vigorous shake. The superior smoothness of Herradura pairs beautifully with the freshness of the lime and the sweetness of the agave.
  • Strain and Serve: Strain the mixture into your salt-rimmed glass filled with ice. Witness the dramatic purple hue enriched by the dark rim, a feast for the eyes.
  • Garnish with Flair: Add a lime wedge and a few fresh blackberries on a cocktail skewer for that final flourish. Their bright color and juicy burst are the perfect counterpoints to the dark, smoky notes of the lava salt.
  • Sip and Savor: Take a moment to appreciate the layers of flavor — from the fruity depth of blackberries to the subtle smokiness of the lava salt, all tied together with the robust charm of Herradura Tequila.

Our Blackberry Margarita with Herradura Tequila and a black lava salt rim isn’t just a cocktail; it’s the highlight of your Taco Tuesday. Whether you’re hosting a festive feast, a casual get-together, or simply indulging in a solitary treat, this margarita is sure to stir up excitement and pleasure in every sip. So, why wait?
