Celebrating Life's #MargaritaMoments With Margarita Ice Cream With Blackberry Ripple and Sauza-Ritas

This is a sponsored post.  My opinions are my own.

Ever have those days when you know you just need a margarita? I’m not talking just on Cinco de Mayo (where it’s mandatory to kick up those stilettos, break out the Sauza and it’s Margarita (or Sauza-Rita) time). That was my situation recently – having come off a nightmare jury duty, followed by two massive work projects and I realized that my batteries were beyond low – my iPhone had more battery life than I did. So, I decided that it was time to break out the “good” margarita glasses, chill with some friends and have some great conversation.  Granted during that time I channeled my inner clutz and wound up breaking one of those “good” margarita glasses and decided that matchy matchy glasses won’t do. After all, it’s not about the glass, but what’s IN the glass that counts, right?  (Sidenote – at the store, the clerk broke one of the good glasses so it’s not like I didn’t know how fragile they were – but no – I wasn’t thinking and poof the glass shattered – typical Aly – I was thinking of twenty things at once and learned my lesson.)

Ingredients

  • Zest of two limes and juice of 4 limes (about ⅓ cup)
  • ¼ cup of tequila (I used Sauza Blue Silver – very smooth finish)
  • 2 tablespoons of orange liqueur
  • ⅛ teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 2 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup of seedless blackberry jam, divided
  • Fresh blackberries for garnish
