This color-changing concoction is the party trick you didn't know you needed. Blackberry Jasmine ice cubes are the key player, so be sure to plan ahead of time so they are icy cold before you serve. Don some ruby slippers and watch as your drink magically changes color before your eyes, not unlike a certain horse who lives in the land of Oz.
