Given the bowl of (admittedly nonseasonal) Argentianian blackberries on the counter, and the whole mess of local Mexican limes in the fridge, Blackberry Margaritas were the only conclusion…
Añejo Tequila… slightly smokey with a clean citrusy agave finish. This stuff was fairly balanced and really pretty on the nose- I could have sipped it neat. It was even better when muddled with the Mexican limes and blackberries.

Blackberry Margarita Recipe:
1 part Tequila
1 tablespoon turbinado sugar (or more to taste)
1 whole lime and juice from a second lime
Sparkling water to taste
Muddle the two lime halves and the sugar in a glass. Add the tequila and ice, stir to chill. Add the sparkling water to taste, as well as more lime juice as needed. Feliz Año Nuevo!
