3 ounces simple syrup


Step 1
Muddle the blackberries and jalapeño in a shaker, then add remaining ingredients.

Step 2

If using frozen blackberries, skip skewering and allow the berries to thaw enough to muddle. Frozen blackberries and sliced lime or jalapeño can be added to the glasses for garnish.
