This is one of my favorite cocktails to have when it’s chilly outside and you want something warm and soothing to sip on. Often this drink is made with Orange Pekoe tea, but I prefer to use blueberry herbal tea as the flavor in more intense. In a pinch I have used earl grey and it was still pretty tasty. Disaronno Italian Liquor and Triple Sec are my choices to further enhance this cocktail, but you can also use Amaretto, Grand Marnier, Brandy or most any other clear liquor you have on hand.
Boil the water and pour into a large tea pot along with the blueberry tea bags and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Discard tea bags. Place an orange slice and cinnamon stick into each class. Add 1/2 ounce each of Disaronno and Triple Sec into the glass. Pour tea over top and stir with the cinnamon stick to combine all the flavors.
- 4 cups cold water
- 2 blueberry tea bags
- 2 ounces Disaronno
- 2 ounces Triple Sec
- 4 orange slices
- 4 cinnamon sticks
About Theresa Toth, Easy Peasy Eats
I have been cooking almost my entire life. My passion for food and feeding people has always had a special place in my life and in my twenties I combined my two loves—entertaining and cooking—into a successful catering business. Becoming a parent presented me with the challenge of creating new ways to provide the meals my family deserved with the limited time I had in the kitchen. I started developing new recipes that were much less time consuming but still delicious and nutritious. That’s how Easy Peasy Eats was born!
