Blackberry Sage Tequila Smash

Blackberry Sage Tequila Smash

Originally created with a roll of our Mixology Dice, this drink has become a favorite! We used the ingredients that we rolled here, but you can make a smash with any spirit, sugar, citrus, fruit & herb. So if you don’t have blackberries or you don’t love tequila for instance, go ahead and switch them out for strawberries or gin.
