Prepare your Have Hope tea using the cold brew method. For an extra minty taste, we doubled the strength of the tea, adding 2 teaspoons of tea for every 1 cup of room temperature water and placing in the refrigerator overnight to cold brew. (For a less minty taste, use 1 teaspoon of tea for every cup of water).
The morning of:
Place 1 cup of frozen blackberries in a bowl and sprinkle with 1 Tbsp of sugar.
Let the blackberries sit and thaw to room temperature, creating a sweet blackberry syrup. (If you’re in a time crunch, you can speed the process up by microwaving the berries for 30 seconds, stirring, then leaving them to sit)
At serving time:
Scoop 1 tbsp of the blackberry syrup over a cup of ice.
Fill the cup halfway with sparkling blackberry juice.
Fill the cup the rest of the way with tea.
Stir, then add a sprig of mint.
Adjust to Your Taste
Prefer something a little sweeter? You can easily adjust this recipe by adding more of the sparkling juice and less tea.
Toss in some fresh blackberries for extra garnish and flavor. You can even experiment with different blackberry sparkling sodas or seltzers!
