I was recently asked to write a post on how I stay healthy through the winter. Not like there’s any special formula. Just good luck in some case, but I do believe there’s something to be said for eating well to prevent sickness. I saw this superfood tea on Aloha‘s recipes and decided to give it a spin. My twist added unsweetened cranberry juice and real tea. My grandmother would make a special tea this one every Christmas and this quite reminded me of it. This Cranberry Orange Tea with Ginger can be served alone, with green, red or black tea, hot or cold. I suppose you could even add the mix to seltzer for a sparkling take. Either way, it’s tart, slightly spiced and very light. Packed with antioxidants from the cranberries, vitamins from the clementine, and ginger’s anti-inflammatory properties, this tea will have you sipping on it again and again.
Another tasty take on a Moscow mule — a (Christmas) Cranberry Moscow Mule. The copper mugs are just so fun, they’re begging to be used after making the lovely Apple Cider Moscow Mules. A splash of diet ginger beer and cranberry juice give the classic drink a balance between spice and tart. Omit the vodka for a tasty mocktail. If you’re feeling exceptionally festive, garnish with fresh cranberries and a sprig of rosemary. While Christmas has passed, at least you have another option to ring in the New Year. Cheers!
