Spice up your summer with this strapping black tea cocktail. We muddled fresh blackberries with Civil Disobedience smoky cardamom tea and added a dose of vodka. This is a must for lovers of fresh blackberries. It’s also a lovely summer drink for fans of scotch and smoke. Pack it in a growler for a gourmet picnic.
