Well, hey party people! If your week was like mine, you deserve a good, strong cocktail. I am feeling a bit moody after the events of this week, so we whipped up a moody cocktail to match. Meet the Blackberry Gray. She is one part blackberry & one part Early Grey. She’s fiesty but refined, you know? Well, if you are still leery, whip one up for yourself! Blackberry & Early Grey Cocktail via Lauren Kelp
