Black and Blue Arnold: Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade Tea Cocktail


Black and Blue Arnold

Enjoy your summer nights with a drink in hand.

A grownup rendition of lemonade, this tea cocktail is the perfect end to the night.

Warm bourbon with a hint of mint and citrus to the palate pairs well with lemonade and tea for an adult summer drink.

Add a few berries and you’ll be ready to relax on the patio.
