Copycat Starbucks Blackberry Mojito Ice Tea Lemonade

Starbucks Copycat Blackberry Mojito Ice Tea Lemonade

Do you ever get mad when suddenly your favorite restaurant, establishment, grocery store etc. stop carrying a product you love? You know the feeling…you’re cruising along about your day and ready for something familiar or favorite and suddenly, WHAM you’re told “We stopped making that” or “We stop carrying that”. Excuse ME?! Like for real? I’ve been waiting all darn Winter long for a Blackberry Mojito Shaken Ice Tea Lemonade-whatever the heck that name of that darned drink- was. Uh huh. Now, I was craving that drink. CRAVING IT. I kept thinking okay, about Spring time they would start bringing it back. Nope. I inquired- They “decided” not to bring it back this year.  Well, that was not going to do, so I decided to play around with the recipe (I knew the components cause I asked one day while chatting up the Starbucks gal last year) and set up my lab/shop in my kitchen to experiment. I know the original mixture contains blackberry mojito green tea from Teavana, but I found this tea mix at Cost Plus one day and I think it is lovely. If you use a green tea based mint flavored tea you should be fine. After playing around with different measures this is what I’ve come up with. So for all of you Blackberry Mojito Ice Tea Lemonade lovers out there, this is for you.
