Spruce up this simple yet classic cocktail with a bundle of blueberries and a dash of tea. Delightful and cleansing, Everyday Detox Lemon by Traditional Medicinals may not have the full detoxing effects it would if it weren’t paired with a drop of gin, but hey. This unique pair goes down easy and there has to be some health benefits by adding tea, right?
