Well, its officially over. Summer is gone, I am freezing every. freaking. day. I have a lot of secret weapons to attempt to battle the next six months- fleece blankets, wool socks and a perfect spot in front of the fire. But, my truly favorite way to keep warm is so simple- hot tea. I sip a cup throughout the entire day and I am telling you- it makes a huge difference. Sometimes on a particularly cold evening, I doctor it up a bit. This my friends is how my beloved Hot Peppermint Bourbon tea was born.
Let's get to the recipe...
You will need:
1 T brown sugar
1 shot of bourbon
- Start by adding the brown sugar and bourbon to your tea cup.
- Next brew your Peppermint tea directly into the same mug.
- Stir until the brown sugar is dissolved.
Head to the fireplace, wearing your wool socks, cover up with a fleece blanket, sip your freshly brewed tea and prepare to be cozy and warm from the inside out!
