Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade

Starbucks Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade Recipe @themerrythoughtThis weekend I tried Starbucks’ Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade and I was a bit sad that there was sooo much ice in it because it ends up only lasting three long sips! I decided to stop at the store on the way home and pick up ingredients to make my own version! And it turned out amazingly… probably better than Starbucks (theirs, although very delicious, was a bit lacking in the mint and lemonade flavors).

    Caitlin - I need this! I agree on the ice…they always put so much that you don’t get enough drink. I think I’ll make my own version too.ReplyCancel

    Peggy - Oh this looks delicious! It would be lovely with other berries as well. Just a quick question… did boiling the green tea make it bitter? Just wondering because I’ve found that to be the case typically but recently I’ve had friends tell me it all depends on the green tea. Thanks!ReplyCancel

      Caitlin McGrath - I didn’t think so… but I rarely ever drink green tea so maybe I just didn’t notice once all the sweetness of the berries and lemonade were added in.ReplyCancel

    Sanderson - If you use the tea brand Starbucks uses you get the extra punch of mint…they use Tazo Zen green teaReplyCancel
