The holiday season is upon us and that means it's time to start thinking about festive drinks to enjoy with friends and family as you gather for the array of festive celebrations. While traditional eggnog, hot buttered rum, and hot cocoa are always popular, why not shake things up this year with some purple tea inspired mocktails? Purple tea is a refreshing and unique variety of tea made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant that is native to the high altitude regions of Kenya. It has a distinctive flavor and color that sets it apart from other teas and makes it perfect for creating unique and delicious holiday drinks. Not only is purple tea tasty, but it also has a number of health benefits including being rich in antioxidants and having a calming effect on the body, while also providing a crash-free boost of energy.
Whether you're hosting a holiday party or just looking for a unique and refreshing drink to enjoy at home, these purple tea mocktails are the perfect choice. So put on your holiday best, gather your ingredients, and get ready to mix up some tasty and eye-catching holiday cheer! The beverage possibilities are endless with purple tea, but here are a few ideas to get you started:
Purple Tea Holiday Punch
This refreshing and fruity mocktail is perfect for a holiday party or just to enjoy with your loved ones at home. To make it, simply pour a bottle of purple tea into a glass, pitcher, or punch bowl. Then, mix in a cup of cranberry juice, a cup of pineapple juice, and a splash of lime juice. For a boost of color and festive flavor, add a few frozen berries and serve over ice.
Purple Tea Spritz
This bubbly and light mocktail is perfect for sipping on while you're opening presents, enjoying a cozy night by the fire, or counting down to ring in the new year! To make it, pop open a bottle or two of purple tea (for best results, add (1) bottle per guest). Then, mix it with a cup of lemon-lime soda, a splash of grenadine, and a few slices of lemon. Serve over ice and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint for a refreshing twist. Elevate this beverage by adding purple tea to a glass of sparkling cider or apple juice.
Purple Tea Hot Toddy
This warm and comforting mocktail is perfect for cold winter nights throughout the entire season. To make it, pour your favorite flavor of purple tea into a mug, kettle, or stovetop pot. Then, mix in a tablespoon of honey, a splash of lemon juice, and a cinnamon stick. Heat the mixture on the stove, microwave or kettle until it is warm and serve in your favorite mug. Add a splash of rum or brandy if you're feeling extra festive.
