Check out the menu board at any Starbucks and you’ll find this frozen drink described as a blend of raspberry and other fruit juices plus Starbucks’ own Tazo brand tea. We’ve discovered that those other fruit juices include white grape juice, aroniaberry, cranberry, and blackberry. Since aroniaberry juice is next to impossible to track down in a local supermarket, we’ll have to make a taste-alike drink with a combination of just the other; more important flavors. Grab the raspberry syrup and a jar of seedless blackberry jam made by Knott’s Berry Farm, and brew up a little tea. Starbucks used Tazo black tea for the drink, but you can use the more common Lipton tea bags. You will only use 1/3 cup of the tea for this 1-serving recipe, so you’ll have plenty left over for additional servings, or for a quick iced tea fix.

Get This

  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tea bag
  • 1/4 cup Ocean Spray cranberry/raspberry juice
  • 2 tablespoons concentrated white grape juice, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons Knott's Berry Farm raspberry syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Knott's Berry Farm seedless blackberry jam
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 cups ice
Do This

1. First brew the tea by bringing 4 cups of water to a rapid boil. Turn off the heat, drop in the tea bag, and let the tea steep for an hour or so. Remove the tea bag and put the tea into the refrigerator to chill.

2. When the tea is cold, make your drink by pouring juices, raspberry syrup, blackberry jam, and 1/3 cup of tea into a blender.

3. Add 2 cups of ice and blend on high speed for 20 to 30 seconds or until the drink is smooth and all ice has been crushed.

Makes 1 16-ounce serving.

Tazoberry & Cream

Some folks like their Tazoberry a little creamier. It's an easy variation that includes adding just 2 tablespoons of cream to the blender with the other ingredients in the recipe. Blend as described in Step 3, and top the drink off with whipped cream if you've got it.
