This year has certainly been a year for bubbly drinks and I’m rounding up the year with a new favorite I put together. I’ve been craving carbonation from time to time and drinking syrupy soda is not much of an option for me. Bleh! I’ve been putting fresh squeezed lime juice in my bubbly water, tonic with a little gin and lime and now I’ve discovered the divine life of bubbly tea! Adult version or not. It’s quite amazing.
Tazo Passion is a herbal infusion of hibiscus, orange peel, rose hips, lemongrass and cinnamon. These flavors married with the sparkling apple cider is absolute perfection. The sparkling cider makes the cinnamon in the tea pop and to me really rings in the holiday feel.
Talk about perfect timing because a month ago I had leftover tea in my cup, didn’t want it… craving bubbles, oddly enough with a little bit of Martinelli’s in my fridge (I almost never have this in the house!) and wondered what they two would taste like. A risk worth taking and now it’s a favorite of mine! You can easily make this into an adult beverage by simply adding a shot of your favorite alcohol. I’ve tried both vodka and gin, both work very well! Enjoy.
