“The Boss” Gin Fizz – Fruity Tea Cocktail Recipe
Fruity teas are well-loved because they’re sugar-free while bursting with juicy, mouthwatering flavor. They’re also versatile and easily enjoyed hot, as a soothing after-dinner treat, or cold, for refreshment. Many fruity teas contain a high fraction of herbals and fruit pieces, making them either very low in caffeine or caffeine-free. This makes fruity teas kid and family friendly. They make great iced teas and tasty bases for cocktails. This month we’re featuring a cocktail recipe made with our top-selling fruity herbal tea – Blood Orange Smoothie. It’s a deliciously sweet, stunning and sophisticated fruity twist on the classic gin fizz!
