Special ingredient #1: Blackberry shrub - combine equal parts blackberries, cane sugar and red wine vinegar in a blender, blend until liquefied, then strain out solids.
Special ingredient #2: Cayenne-chile syrup - combine 1 cup sugar, one cup water, 1 teaspoon chile powder, 1 teaspoon cayenne in a saucepan and bring to a simmer.

Recipe supplied by Patrón, who say, “Megan’s cocktail was inspired by Seattle’s abundance of blackberries. A fruity blackberry punch and modern simplicity make the Skyline Margarita created by Seattle’s Megan Radke shine. Keenly balanced sweet blackberry shrub comes together with spicy heat from cayenne and chili powder to complement Patrón Silver’s light pepper notes and crisp finish. Citrus flavors join the star ingredients to make the perfect margarita for enjoying a warm day in the drizzly city.”
