      Colorful Cocktails: Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea

      Colorful Cocktails: Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea

      Cocktail or beverage? I'll let you decide. My Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea is my last ditch effort to hold onto Summer for as long as possible.

      However there really is no reason why this drink can't work for Fall as well. Just substitute cold tea for hot. The flavors will still be refreshing and delicious!

      Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea

      The flavor of Blood Orange is similar to the orange fruit we know and love. But there's a layer of berry-ness that gives it a richness that is almost wine-like.

      Ginger is a fragrant spice with a slightly peppery undertones and a sweetness that is warm and zesty.

      I love citruses all year long and the richness of blood orange is smooth and satisfying, not at all tart and biting like some can be. The addition of ginger makes this drink extra special!

      Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea Ingredients

      This beverage is great for lunch, brunch or partytime. Or just when you need a liquid pick-me-up. 

      And with only 3 ingredients, you can whip up a pitcher in no time! 

      Watch my how-to video or follow the complete recipe below for all you need to add my Blood Orange Ginger Iced Tea to your home bar drink list!

      Colorful Cocktails: Blue Agave Margarita

      Colorful Cocktails: Blue Agave Margarita

      At the time this post was written, there were 38 days until the end of the Summer season. The CALENDAR end.

      I'm always a little annoyed at things that have unwritten rules based on nothingness, like "don't wear white after Labor Day" or "Pumpkin Spice Lattes are Fall drinks". Who says? Who is this invisible authority figure that puts arbitrary timetables on everyday living? 

      Margaritas have long been associated with warmer times, beach vacations and paper umbrellas. But I'm here to break the cycle of seasonal rule domination by declaring Margaritas a colorful cocktail for all seasons.

      My Blue Agave version is a refreshing mix of bitter citrus and spicy with a side of mild sweetness. It's a cocktail for ALL seasons. 

      Watch my how-to video or follow the complete recipe below for all you need to add my Blue Agave Margarita to your home bar repertoire!

      Colorful Cocktails: Spiked Turmeric Lemonade and a GIVEAWAY! (CLOSED)

      My new Colorful Cocktail is....(drumroll)....this healthy take on a traditional Lemonade. The addition of Turmeric, a natural anti-inflammatory compound, makes it good FOR you. It's my salute to Summertime and it's just the right drink for picnics and cookouts. Every time I've served it, I run out, no matter how much I prepare. I've been asked for the recipe more times than I can count so I'm taking that as a sign that I should share it with everyone!  Watch my how-to video or follow the complete recipe below for all you need to add my Spiked Turmeric Lemonade to your at-home cocktail list!
