Blackberry Iced Tea Bramble

Blackberry Iced Tea Bramble

Green tea, blackberries, mint, and lime all come together as a base to this cocktail (or mocktail). Whether you hold the alcohol or not, this gives you both versions to suit your needs. Ginger beer and tonic finish these for a bit of effervescence.
