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!
