The past few weeks, I was very fortunate to have my very first intern, Amanda  which has been amazing.  She wanted to try a recipe, take pictures, and learn the process of how to post on the website.   She came up with this delicious version of a lavender blackberry mocktail,  which we both found incredibly fresh, thirst quenching,  and loaded with tons of antioxidants; fitting for his month’s Recipe Redux “Probiotic Cocktails and Gut-Health Mocktails.  So simple to make and tasty you are going to love it just as much as we did!  Let us know if you liked it!
