Blackberry Vanilla Mocktail

A drink sporting beautiful tart blackberries with hints of honey, lemon, and vanilla?  Thoughts of this drink made me weak in the knees when today’s guest mixologist proposed it.  Rachael White is a force to be reckoned with, and when I found out she had started a new blog, I thought maybe she would be [...]
