There's nothing I love more than shutting off for the holiday season and enjoying the cozy winter nights watching the snow fall with a hot toddy. I love mulled wine and hot apple cider but always find they end up being a lot of work or I don't have any of the proper ingredients. That's why I wanted to come up with a super simple alternative to create the most delicious hot holiday drink using easily accessible ingredients, or ones you'll already have at home!
for two cups of tea you'll need:
one 547mL Pure Leaf Lemon Iced Tea
2 orange peels
2 lemon peels
3 cinnamon sticks
5 whole cloves
half an apple sliced
Pour the whole bottle of Pure Leaf Lemon Iced Tea into a saucepan along with all other ingredients. Bring everything to a boil and then let simmer! The longer you simmer the more delicious the drink will be (also the more delicious your home will smell!). Once everything has had the chance to nicely simmer and the flavors have all come together, simply pour and enjoy! I like to add in some of the apple slices, orange peels and cinnamon sticks to each cup for a nice garnish. To make the tea extra nice, add in a dash of dark rum!
Thank you to Pure Leaf Tea for partnering on this post.
