Jack Honey Sweetened Blackberry Tea Cocktail | RobynsOnlineWorld.com | 5 o'Clock Friday Recipe

This weekend is the unofficial end of summer and a great time to sit outside, BBQ, and sip on a nice cocktail. This week’s recipe comes from the fine folks at Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey (disclosure – I have received free samples from them, opinions are my own) and Creative Culinary who offer up this tasty tea cocktail.

Now, if you want to cheat and use store-bought, premade blackberry tea or use blackberry tea bags I promise I won’t tell anyone. However, if you have access to fresh blackberries I strongly suggest brewing up a batch of the tea as per the recipe.

Enjoy!

I’m not a big fan of beer and malt beverages but found I like Jack Honey on occasions but am lost as to what to do with it and just mix it with cola and ice. This recipe sounds pretty good!

So many great recipes to use Tennessee Honey with! Stay tuned, I will share more!

My family is from the south and loves their tea. I love the addition of blackberries in this tea for something different!

Yes, the southern people love their tea!
