Spicy Blackberry Margarita Sour. Juicy blackberries, spicy jalapeños, a good splash of tequila, shaken up with an egg white for a nice sour twist. It’s sweet, but with spice, super easy, and a fun moody cocktail to enjoy.

Happy Saturday! Excited to be back with a September cocktail that feels very fitting for this month. It’s light and pretty, yet gives off moody fall vibes. Crazy that fall is just 12 days away!

I’m having such a nice time in New York. I’ve never been here in September, but it is beautiful! I will share more details tomorrow. I had the best day yesterday and I know today will be great too! Going to dive right into recipe details today!

I wanted to create something fun for September before we officially start up our fall cocktail Saturday series. Think of this as a little teaser!

I’ve been enjoying mixing and matching drink recipes and kind of combining them into one drink. This is my favorite spicy margarita done-up with an egg white for a sour twist.

When creating drink recipes, I always look for a more natural way to sweeten them to keep the drink low in sugar. Being the fruit lover that I am, I almost always reach for fresh berries, and honey or maple to sweeten!

Today’s mix-up is blackberries with some spicy jalapeños. Not only did I have these ingredients on hand, but I was in love their deep, dark bluish/purple colors, and knew they would make for a pretty drink.

Just muddle the berries and jalapeños together until they burst. This is especially easy to do with berries, and the jalapeño infuses the drink with spice. Then add the tequila and shake things up! Once this is shaken up, add the egg white, then shake again. This is optional, but I do love it!

I know this is a little different, but I really wanted to have fun with this – and I did!! Mixing this up will make any night feel special and hopefully ease us into fall cocktails.

    1. Hey Robin,
      Totally, that would be just fine for you to do! Please let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope you love it! xx

    Absolutely delicious! I used non alcoholic tequila and orange juice, since I’m currently prego. Also subbed limeade for lime juice since I didnt have any limes.

    I love this drink! I did make a few changes though. I don’t like my drinks real sweet so I went with 1T honey. However, I found it a bit sweet, so I added a little more lime juice and it was great. I also mixed 2 drinks at once and only used 1 egg white. It produced plenty of foam. This one is a keeper for sure.

    I substituted grapefruit Topo Chico for the orange liquor (simply because I didn’t have it) plus omitted the egg white. It was delish!

  4. Hey! This looks absolutely divine!! I’ve been searching for something like this with the right amount of spice. I had something similar once with cinnamon. This looks better. Would you ever do a take on this with cinnamon or clove? Love! Seriously Thank you!

    Absolutely delicious! This is a keeper. Did not use the egg white but only because i didn’t need it to look fancy. Drank it in a martini glass instead of over ice. Will try it over ice next time. Oh so yummy. Used Cointreau (orange liquor) and it was perfect.

    1. Hey Maree,
      Fantastic! Thanks so much for trying this cocktail and sharing your review, I love to hear that it was enjoyed! Cheers! xx

  6. Echoing the question about the missing tablespoon of thyme leaves: I added them with the muddle, which tastes absolutely delicious AND allowed me to adjust the amount of jalapeno, which can be tricky when making drinks for a group (you’ve got to aim for the middle). Skipping the egg white as it’s usually been a disaster when I’ve tried them in other drinks. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hey Rebecca,
      Thanks so much for giving this recipe a try! There are no thyme leaves in the cocktail, that was a typo:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xTieghan

  7. Sounds like YUM! Says add ice, strain into glass, then back into shaker & fill with ice, shake again, strain again. Do I add ice twice? (And do I strain the first time thru a mesh strainer or just the holes in my shaker?)

    1. Hi Deborah,
      Yes, you want to strain and shake and then add the egg white separately. You do not need to use a mesh strainer. Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

      1. Hi Laurel,
        You can skip the egg white if you are worried, but yes after shaking vigorously it is safe:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

    1. Hey Jen,
      Yes, the raw egg white is optional, it adds some extra fizz to the top! I hope you love the recipe! Cheers! xTieghan

  8. Question;
    How is the “Tablespoon of fresh Thyme leaves” used or added? It’s listed in the ingredients but there’s nothing that states when or how to use it in the instructions.

    Thank you,

    1. Hey Theresa,
      So sorry for any confusion, there are no thyme leaves in this recipe:) Please let me know if you give the recipe a try! Cheers! xT
