In a mixing glass or cocktail shaker, combine all ingredients. Add enough cubed ice to chill drink and shake vigorously. If using egg whites, shake a little longer to combine. Double strain into a coupette or margarita glass to remove blackberry seeds. Garnish with fresh blackberries on a toothpick.
