Directions
  1. Dark Magic Margarita
  2. Prepare two highball glasses with ice and reserve. In the cup of a cocktail shaker, add the plum reduction, Cointreau, tequila, pomegranate cherry juice, and lime.
  3. Next, add a generous handful of ice to your shaker and close the lid. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds, or until the outside of the shaker becomes frosted.
  4. Place a small fine mesh sieve over your serving glass and strain the drink into two glasses. Top with soda water if desired. Garnish with a half round of plum or cocktail stirrer with blackberries.
  1. Black Plum Reduction
  2. Chop your plums roughly and add them to a medium sized saucepan. Add the sugar & lemon juice, and give the mixture a quick stir. Place the saucepan over medium heat. While stirring occasionally, bring the fruit mixture to a boil. Boil for about 10 minutes, while stirring periodically, until soft and jammy. Once cooked, remove from the heat. Using a potato masher, mash the remaining fruit pieces. Next, take a fine mesh sieve and place over a a medium sized mixing bowl. Pour the cooked fruit into the sieve. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the fruit through the sieve, releasing the juices and keeping the pulp. Discard the pulp (or eat over yogurt, like I like to do!). Let the reduction cool, and place into an airtight storage container. Refrigerate. Use within 3-5 days.
