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!
1 cup of water
1 orange pekoe tea bags
1 tsp mulling spices (Williams-Sonoma sells a yummy mix)
1.5 oz Cointreau
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!
