Sweeties, it’s the most magical time of the year! We just love this season! To us, it’s the time to celebrate family, friends, and all things sweet. There is nothin’ like a cozy evening get together with pals and toasting to the holidays gathered around a roaring fire. Doesn’t that sound just lovely?
Traditional punches can be prepared with loads of sugar. For this time of year especially, it seems that sugar can really sneak up on ya, especially in your festive beverages. Keeping that in mind Sweeties, time and time again, we find ourselves makin’ new recipes that we can serve to our guests, keeping those mason jars full with zero calorie…and guilt free sweet tea. Luckily, we are sharing yet another lovely recipe that you can whip up right by using your Southern Breeze Sweet Tea bags. Oh Yay!
Oh what fun you will have while sippin’ on this sweet holiday delight! Just grab, your favorite pal, a handful of ingredients, and mix it on up and serve up our Holiday Southern Breeze Sweet Tea Punch. Ready for the festive recipe? Ho ho ho, here we go!
For the Sweet Tea Punch:
- 8 cups of Southern Breeze Sweet Tea (already brewed and cooled)
- 2 oranges (to make 1/2 cup fresh orange juice)
- 1 lime (to make 2 tablespoons lime juice)
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1 bottle of sparkling apple cider
For the garnish:
- 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
- 1/2 orange
- 1 lime
- 2 rosemary branches
In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients: Squeeze the orange until you have a half cup of juice an squeeze the lime until there is 2 tablespoons of lime juice. Stir all ingredients including the brewed Southern Breeze and 1 cup pomegranate juice in a bowl.
Thinly slice the orange and lime.Pour the holiday sweet tea punch into a pitcher (adding the sparkling cider last), then add the rosemary branches and orange and lime slices into the pitcher. Add the sparkling cider just before serving. Top off with pomegranate seeds and serve! Enjoy!
Sweet Tip! Pop the pitcher in the fridge for 1 to 2 hours before serving for a colder and crisper taste! Add as much or as little fruit as you like-you control the sweetness!
