For the Smoked Blackberry Margarita, the idea of heat is more literal: Mixologists at Four Seasons Hotel Baku smoke the cocktail over cherry wood after the ingredients are mixed together for an unexpected aroma and taste, with hints of sour, sage, sweetness and smoke. Paired with refreshing blackberries and citrus, it’s perfect for a hot summer day.
4 cl tequila
4 cl Cointreau
1.5 cl maple syrup
2 cl lime juice
6 to 8 fresh blackberries
7 sage leaves
Directions: Muddle sage leaves and blackberries, then add the rest of the ingredients and serve with ice.
