Summer Drink Recipe: Blackberry Coolers

Frozen Blackberry Cooler Recipe - SO refreshing!

Some of my fondest memories are picking blackberries at my grandparent’s house in upstate South Carolina with my family. We have this thing with blackberries…we LOVE them (proof: my brother’s blackberry jam recipe).
