Happy New Year!
One of the things I love the most about the holiday season is the many excuses to make things just a little extra special, a little extra fancy. A dear friend of mine goes above and beyond when it comes to hospitality, especially around the holidays. This is her recipe, and my goodness is it ever good! A simple sparkling punch, the rich purple hue makes anyone feel like royalty!
We’ve got a special little recipe for a sparkling, delicious, festive drink – and you have time to make it for tonight!
This recipe used Berry Patch Herbal, but you can easily substitute any tea or herbal infusion.
4 Tsp. Berry Patch Herbal
2 C. Boiling Water
1 liter Club Soda
1/4 c. sugar, honey, or preferred sweetener
Ice, as needed
[Make It Happen]
The first step is to make a quick tea concentrate. Today, I used 4 teaspoons of Berry Patch and 2 cups of boiling water. Let the tisane steep for at least 7 minutes. If you are going to sweeten the drink, now is the time to mix the sweetener into the tea.
Chill the concentrate overnight, or a minimum of 2 hours.
Mix one quarter concentrate with three quarters soda.
Add a few chunks of ice.
Garnish with lime slice or mint sprig, or just enjoy!
Beautiful, quick, and just so yummy – I hope it adds so much to your New Year celebration!
