Berry Blast Cocktail


Berry Blast

Want a berry delicious summer drink? Try this twist on the classic mint julep. This cocktail takes oolong with its orchid-like notes and mixes berries into the classic recipe.

Mint isn’t the only ingredient meant to be muddled. Try adding a handful of fresh berries for a sweet summer twist on the mint julep. TEALEAVES Organic Imperial Oolong adds a refreshing floral note.
