Black Berry Margarita

In August Shyama was doing Summer job and she was lucky enough to get a summer job in the City Hall public Library ( this is is second year) .
She loves working there as she like people who she works with.
All her friends do summer job for a month, that is normal here.
I guess it is also good for parents as we never have to give pocket money for her and anwyway she is really carefull with her money, she is like she is saving up for going for a world trip after her studies :-)

Anyway it was 31st of August and her last day of work and we decided evening we should celebrate her last day of work with a cocktail and some snacks. And here we love any excuse for a party.
So I made these Black Berry Margarita .
Recipe is for 1 person

3 tbsp of blackberry sauce ( I used some 250 gm of blackberry, added a splash of water and then puredd it and ssieved it so you don't have the seeds) with this much i could make 6 glasses, i didn't weigh so can't give you the excact amount i used,plus keep few aside so that you can decorate it when you serve them)
50 ml Tequila
20 ml Triple sec ( i used this, but if you don't have this you can also use Cointreau)
10 ml lime juice
10 ml sugar syrup ( the recipe said 20 ml, the first glass was made with 20 ml and we thought it was a bit sweet so when we did the second serving used only 10 ml)
Shake all the above ingridients in a cocktail shaker and pout into a Margaritta glass with loads of crushed ice.
My ice was not crushed that good as i was too lazy but when i make next time I will sure crush it more.

Looks fantastic. Nothing like having to work to make your pocket money. It is a good life lesson that all teenagers need to get. Good for Shyama.
