Spiced Ice-Tea Cocktail

Spicedicedtea

As the temperatures cool, your drinks don’t have to! Add some heat to your cocktails with mulling spices. This orange pekoe/Cointreau mix is amazing, not to mention low in calories. We all know how sweet vodka-crans can be. After one too many, the hangover is that much worse because you’re also crashing from a sugar rush. But throw tea into the equation and things may be different. Happy Saturday!

Ingredients(serves 1):

1 cup of water

1 orange pekoe tea bags

1 tsp mulling spices (Williams-Sonoma sells a yummy mix)

1.5 oz Cointreau

Ice

The how-to:

1. Bring the water to a boil, and steep the tea with mulling spices for 3-5 minutes. Strain and let cool

2. In a cocktail shaker, combine the tea, Cointreau, and a couple of ice cubes. Shake it all up (great workout, no?)

3. Pour into a tall glass filled halfway with ice, and enjoy

Style is served!
