You could definitely make this with frozen blackberries when fresh aren't in season! Both in this recipe and in our strawberry margarita mocktail, frozen berries work.
For this recipe, simply unthaw them enough to muddle first. I wouldn't recommend using anything but fresh sage though. Dried just is NOT the same in this drink.
I always recommend Monin Blackberry syrup because it is made with clean ingredients and has no artificial colors. The flavor is strong but authentic as well.
This lemonade keeps well in the refrigerator for up to five days. It is best fresh within the first three days though.
