Blackberry Mint Julep Margarita

  • 2 parts Milagro Anejo
  • 1 part Lime Juice
  • 1 part Honey Syrup
  • 5 Blackberries
  • 6 Mint Leaves


  1. Muddle berries and mint.
  2. Add rest, shake and strain over ice in julep glass.
  3. Garnish with blackberries and mint sprig.

Tip from Gaston Martinez, Milagro Tequila Ambassador: Substituting the bourbon for Anejo tequila makes sense since we mature this tequila in used bourbon casks. The cask is a huge source of the flavor found in both spirits and will have many similarities. Salud!!!

  • Dash peach bitters

Kentucky and Ireland have a great deal in common. They both produce fine fiddlers, fine horses and fine whiskey. And, while musicians trade tunes and breeders trade horses, whiskey aficionados trade recipes – like this Irish twist on a Southern classic. – Tullamore D.E.W National Brand Ambassador, Tim Herlihy
