I'm having a crisis! Does anyone out there care?

I just went and ordered my blackberrry tea at Sonic and the lady informed me that they don't have it anymore!!!!! It's seasonal!!!

Excuse me! Come again! I didn't hear you correctly!

"This can not be happening!"

My head dropped. My mouth fell open and my eyes got a little watery! Just a little!

I'm having withdrawls now! I think Sonic should have to warn us addicts so that we can wean ourselves off ! Cold turkey is hard!

Peyton didn't get any cherries in his cherry limeade! What will we do? We may have to boycott Sonic.....for awhile!

What will my new favorite be now? Any suggestions?

I don't drink tea, but I found this just for you. It is from Southern Living, so it has to be good.

Blackberry Iced Tea

3 cups fresh or frozen blackberries, thawed
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
Pinch of baking soda
4 cups boiling water
2 family-size tea bags
2 1/2 cups cold water
Garnishes: fresh blackberries, fresh mint sprigs

Combine blackberries and sugar in large container. Crush blackberries with wooden spoon. Add mint and baking soda. Set aside.

Pour 4 cups boiling water over tea bags; cover and let stand 3 minutes. Discard tea bags.

Pour tea over blackberry mixture; let stand at room temperature 1 hour. Pour tea through a wire-mesh strainer into a large pitcher, discarding solids. Add 2 1/2 cups cold water, stirring until sugar dissolves. Cover and chill until ready to serve. Garnish, if desired.

Jana...You are my new BFF! It's a lot more work than just tootin through Sonic, but it sounds wonderful!

That is just not right...I've had the same thing happen with "seasonal" offerrings that I didn't know were seasonal until they were gone. :(

Ok Carrie, Im ticked...but from one addict to another rasberry and peach are great too. I am glad you warned me becuase I probably would have cried. I always get it with an extra squirt of blackberry and double ice. With this awful tooth I have no sonic trips for now. :(

ok....well, this season we picked lots of blackberries did you pick any???? If you have some frozen just that you picked or you can buy some....add a bunch to a bunch of water and a bunch of sugar or splenda to taste out it in a jar.....and wala you have the same jazz! PROMISE I HAVE MADE it BEFORE........and if you cant do that and you need to GET YOUR DRINK ON.....they have THE BEST BLACKBERRY TEA at Johnny Carinos
Thanks for the kind words about Serg!
