Cheers with Tradewinds | 'Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house... The AC was on because I live in the south. 
It is 80 degrees outside and I can't wear any of my cute holiday sweaters. Hot chocolate is pushing it. Sweet tea? At this rate, why the heck not? I have two perfectly seasonal recipes that you can share in this uncharacteristically warm Christmas using Tradewinds Tea. It comes in a ton of flavors but I'm kind of obsessed with their sweet tea.
Paradise Peach Mangosa


Ingredients:
-          2 parts champagne
-          1 part Tradewinds Jimmy Buffett’s Island Tea Peach Mango Black Tea
Directions:
1.      Pour ingredients together and enjoy!



And if you're extra fancy:

Apple Sea-Cider
Ingredients: 
-          1 short cinnamon stick 
-          3 whole cloves 
-          1/2 teaspoon peppercorns 
-          2 cups apple cider 
-          1 apple, sliced 
-          1 orange, sliced 
-          2 cups Tradewinds Sweet Tea 
-          A splash of gin
Directions:
Simmer all ingredients on low heat for 2 hours. Enjoy. For a quicker recipe, bring all ingredients except cider to a boil over a stove and simmer

Hope you have a Merry Christmas! I definitely doesn't feel like December, but this whole year has been crazy. Nothing as been ideal, so hey! I wanted a warm vacation, so I guess it came to me.

CHEERS!
LOVE, MARA
